Depor to sign Santos from Alaves

Recently relegated Deportivo La Coruna are closing in on the signing of Alaves forward Christian Santos, say reports in Spain.

The 30-year-old Venezuelan international striker joined the Basque club from Dutch side NEC Nijmegen in 2016 but has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot.

New Depor Coach Natxo Gonzalez and sporting director Carmelo del Pozo are both keen on the deal, according to El Desmarque, while Alaves will sanction his early departure.

Santos netted two goals in 10 appearances last season and will become the third signing of the summer at Depor following goalkeeper Dani Gimenez’s move from Real Betis and Argentine defender Sebastian Dubarbier.
