Eibar could look to Valencia midfielder Fabian Orellana in the January transfer window, according to reports in Spain.
The Chilean international reportedly has not future at the Mestalla and indeed has only made a La Liga matchday squad once this season, but was an unused substitute.
The 31-year-old only joined Los Che from Celta Vigo earlier this season but new Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral has no plans to retain him in the squad.
Eibar’s Fran Rico is set to be sidelined for a further six months while both El Mundo Deportivo and Super Deporte report a €1.7m deal could be concluded in January.
