Deportivo is pending to confirm the signing of Lucas Pérez while it waits for Bojan Krkić. The arrival of Eyong Enoh is now doubtful, while Víctor Fernández announced two major signings that could last three weeks.

Before the trip to Colombia, Depor are hoping to close the arrival of two players: Lucas Pérez (25) and Bojan Krkić (23). About the rest, new boss Víctor Fernández is expecting to complete the major part of the operations on next week, though he and the team will be in South America.

The signing of Lucas Pérez could be finally announced on Thursday. The winger is in A Coruña since last Friday, but his arrival hasn’t been officially confirmed and therefore the player isn’t training with the first team due to a conflict between PAOK FC and FK Karpaty Lviv.

PAOK FC already agreed to release the player in a one-season loan deal with Deportivo, but the Ukrainian club owes the 30% of the transfer rights and was requesting money. The issue should be solved on Thursday and the announcement of the signing should take place that day or on Friday.

Meanwhile, Depor are alos pending to know what will happen with Bojan Krkić (23), the club already admitted contacts in order to sign the striker, who began to train with FC Barcelona on this week. Several clubs are hoping to sign the player too, and the attacker remains undecided. But Deportivo won’t wait for him too long; if the operation isn’t closed by the end of the week then it’s understood that the Galicians will search for other alternatives.

Depor are expected to complete between eight and ten more signings, but none of them should occur before the weekend. A third player that was linked with Depor during recent weeks is Eyong Enoh (28). The Cameroonian centre midfielder rescinded his contract with Antalyaspor, but now he has been also linked to PAOK FC (Lucas’ club). For the moment he’s on vacation.

Víctor Fernández said on Tuesday that he expects to have the 80% of the team training at the moment of returning from Colombia, he said that the club is only open to wait twenty days for two big incorporations that are currently negotiated by the club. There are no major hints on who these players are.
