Transfer Rumours

Wigan eye Spanish stopper

Wigan have found themselves firmly on our radar here at the Football Transfer Tavern and today we are discussing the Sky Sports claim that Roberto Martinez wishes to sign David Cobeno.

The Rayo Vallecano keeper has only made eight appearances for the La Liga side this season and is struggling for form and confidence after falling down the radar at the club. Having played for Sevilla and carved out a stellar reputation in La Liga the keeper is keen to make a move not only to gain first team football but also to experience a new challenge.

Moving to the Premier League would be a huge challenge for the player who is out of contract in the summer and the 30-year-old could even be allowed to leave for free this month. Having played a vital role in getting Rayo promoted and keeping them in La Liga to now becoming number two is upsetting for Cobeno. The keeper believes he could challenge Ali Al-Habsi for the number one shirt and is open to a move.

Martinez has already been busy this January transfer window bringing in Roger Espinoza and Angelo Henriquez.
