Wigan chasing Espanyol striker

The 23-year-old has only scored twice for Espanyol this season, but is highly-rated in Spain.

He told Sport: “I know both clubs were talking about it on the final day of the transfer window, but ultimately did not reach any agreement.

“I am very happy at Espanyol. I’m very focused on this team.”

He added: “In the world of football, nobody knows what will happen, anything can happen.”
