Espanyol squad for sale?

Espanyol expect to undergo a major reshuffle of their playing squad in the summer and will listen to offers for any of their players.

According to Deporte Cope, the club’s hierarchy feel the current campaign will end well below expectations after targeting at least a European place before the start of the season.

However, with just two games remaining Los Pericos appear likely to end in the bottom half of the table, having already dismissed Coach Quique Sanchez Flores and the sporting director.

As a result, it is claimed that the most convenient thing to do from the board’s point of view is to start a new project from scratch – meaning every player is potentially for sale.

Stars such as Gerard Moreno, Aaron Martin and Marc Navarro are bound to attract interest from several clubs, most notably in the Premier League, while on-loan goalkeeper Roberto (Malaga) and winger Hernan Perez (Alaves) have few options of a return.
