Cruyff, who has also played for Barcelona and Manchester United, joined his new team mates at Espanyol's pre-season training camp on Wednesday after penning a one-year contract.
"I'm coming here with a lot of enthusiasm because there's been talk of signing for Espanyol for years," stated Cruyff.
The 29-year-old came up through the youth ranks at Espanyol's Catalan rivals Barcelona but left the club when his father Johan was dismissed as coach.
The midfielder then had a four-year spell at Manchester United, also playing on loan at Celta Vigo, before moving to Alaves, who were relegated from the Primera last season.
