Despite the need for the squad to cover on the right side, taking into account the long-lasting injury of Sébastien Corchia, the low prominence of Pipa and that Abelardo Fernández ranks other players before Víctor Gómez, the club has preferred to cover the backs with hiring Oier. One of the reasons is the situation of Diego López, the highest paid player in the squad, who ends the contract in June.The arrival of Oier leaves Andrés Prieto in an even more complicated situation, He returned in July to what was his home and signed a contract until 2021 with the option of one more campaign. The Alicante goal has played four games this season, against Lleida, San Sebastián de los Reyes, Real Sociedad (in the Cup) and CSKA Moscow, in Europa League. Goalkeeper Oier Olazábal, a position covered in the squad by Diego López (who just finished his contract in June) and Andrés Prieto, who arrived last summer, is the last of the reinforcements of the Professional Soccer leadership, which in January has deeply remodeled the staff with an investment of 41.5 million, a record, hiring a striker, a central, an end and now a goalkeeper.Oier comes from Levante and Espanyol will pay 1.5 million. The 30-year-old goalkeeper played seven seasons at Barcelona in his final stage of training and accumulates more than 50 games in First. Already last summer, when Roberto Jiménez finished his contract and left for West Ham, Espanyol considered the option of hiring him, but there was finally no agreement. Now, it has been reached. On Thursday contacts were accelerated and this Friday everything was closed, even the player did not train and went to Barcelona to pass the medical check-up.
