Eibar want Sporting’s Perez

Eibar are planning to sign Sporting Gijon central defender Alex Perez this summer, according to reports in the Spanish press.

Perez has made 31 league appearances for the Asturian club this season and has played an instrumental role in their rise into the league’s automatic promotion spots.

The 26-year-old only joined Sporting last summer from Real Valladolid and Diario AS states Eibar will make a move this summer, having held interest in the signing last summer.

Perez started his career with Getafe before moving abroad with a loan move to Levski Sofia before spending a season at Carolina RailHawks.

The defender’s contract at El Molinon expires in June 2019 but the club would reportedly be open to a sale this summer should a suitable offer emerge.
