Malaga look to be close to their first capture for 2016-17 as they’re in talks with Sporting Gijon midfielder Jony.
AS cites reports from Gijon and Malaga that say the club are negotiating with Jony over a switch to La Rosaleda when his Sporting contract expires.
Jony, a left-sided player who has also been on the books at Real Oviedo and Barcelona, was part of the Sporting team who won promotion to the Primera for 2015-16.
Sporting Coach Abelardo is said to have asked the club to extend Jony’s contract but he could be ready to quit El Molinon.
Malaga hope to get Jony’s signature and also confirm renewals for goalkeeper Carlos Kameni, to 2020, and Pablo Fornals, to 2019.
