Espanyol have confirmed they are in advanced negotiations with Parma for Colombian striker Dorlan Pabon.
The forward arrived this summer, but has struggled to make an impact at the Tardini and is still waiting for his debut Serie A goal after 12 appearances.
“We want to sign Pabon, but it will not be an easy process considering there are many teams interested in him,” Espanyol director of sport Oscar Perarnau told Radio Catalunya.
“However, we are in pole position.”
Pabon turns 25 on January 24 and signed a five-year contract with Parma when completing his €4m transfer from Atletico Nacional.
