The list of candidates to reinforce Deportivo is getting long with the pass of the days. Several of them are just rumours, but for the moment the one that seems more near to sing for Depor is Geovanni Deiberson Mauricio, the Brazilian winger that played at Barcelona between the years 2001 and 2003.

The famous meeting between Lendoiro and Lotina has dispatched all the rumours in La Coru?±a, each day more names are added to the list of possible candidates to join Deportivo, some of them are impossible to fulfil and Lotina already discarded some of them. The main candidates so far are: Omar Bravo (Chivas), Humberto Suazo (Monterrey), Jorge Valdivia (Palmeiras) 'Pepe' Sand (Lan??s), Agust?­n Pelletieri (Lan??s) Mat?­as Fritzler (Lan??s), Augusto Fern??ndez (River Plate), Dar?­o Cvitanich (Banfield), Cristian Pellerano (Racing de Avellaneda), Fred (Olympique Lyon), Rodrigo Palacio (Boca Juniors), Mista (Atl?©tico Madrid) and Roberto Soldado (Real Madrid).

But who seems to be near to sign for Deportivo is Geovanni Deiberson Mauricio (27), the Brazilian that played at Barcelona between the years 2001 and 2003. He left Cruzeiro on the past year and joined Manchester City on the Premiership, he has only played 13 games with the British club -only two as starter- and his agent already said that he wants to leave Sven Goran Eriksson's club. Geovanni performs as a right winger and also as a playmaker, two positions that Lotina will love to reinforce.

All the papers in La Coru?±a were informing about his case during Wednesday.  His agent and stepfather, Roberto Assun?§ao, talked with reporters and assured that he's negotiating with Depor "We have maintained contacts with the Galician club since one week ago and we could have a resolution in the next hours. Geovanni will love to play at Depor and off course, the operation can be fulfilled. Right now we are studying all the possibilities, he could join Depor in a loan spell or in a normal transfer."
