Wigan Athletic are poised to sign Osasuna striker Oriol Riera for €2.5 million, according to Spanish media outlet Diario de Navarra.
The 27-year old forward is rumoured to be next in the mass exodus at the Spanish side, who were recently relegated into the Segunda Division.
Oriol Riera did have a relatively impressive season, despite his club’s poor finish, having managed to score 13 league goal in 37 league appearances and has recently caught the interest of many English sides.
It was previously reported by Marca that he would move to England but it was only recently that teams such as Swansea City and Crystal Palace were being reported to be wanting Riera by Tribal Football.
However, it is believed by many sources that Wigan Athletic are close to signing the former Barcelona striker having met the €2.5 million buy-out clause in his contract.
He is poised to travel to Wigan in the near future to discuss personal terms and to undergo a club medical.
