Kameni’s stalling leaves Espanyol anxious of being left with three first-team goalkeepers

Anxiety is growing at Espanyol that they could be left with three first-team goalkeepers, as Carlos Kameni’s move to Roma continues to stall.

A transfer that was thought agreed 10 days ago by the clubs with a €3m fee, hit a snag over the Roman’s initial failure to agree personal terms with the 27-year-old. Having originally turned down a routine pre-season medical at Espanyol, the goalkeeper has now undergone that test, with Roma thought to now be negotiating elsewhere.

This has left Los Periquitos in the awkward position of having three goalkeepers in their senior squad. Sporting director Ramon Planes has already confirmed Kiko Casilla – out on loan last term – will be the team’s No 1, whilst coaching staff have also intimated Cristian Alvarez will take the back-up squad position.

Planes has confirmed the issue is between Kameni and Roma, and that the club do not want to comment on what is quickly becoming a difficult situation, one that could become Espanyol’s difficult situation if the move collapses.
