Almeria are reported to be considering an offer from Wigan for winger Albert Crusat, with new Latics boss Roberto Martinez linked with another raid on his homeland.
The 27-year-old wide-man, linked with Spurs earlier this summer, can play on either flank and Spanish reports suggest he is the man wanted to replace Luis Antonio Valencia, who is set to depart Wigan this summer.
Martinez has already raided the Spanish domestic market for his first Wigan signing when he landed former Swansea loanee Jordi Gomez from Espanyol.
Wigan were understood to have scouted Crusat before Martinez arrived at the club, but with his in-depth knowledge of La Liga, he has sanctioned the move.
Now Almerica president Alfonso Garcia is considering their options, but he has insisted that coach Hugo Sanchez will have the final decision on whether Crusat is sold.
