Hernan Crespo is next in line to leave Inter and a move to Spanish side Espanyol is on the cards for the Argentinean striker.
The former Lazio hitman has been left to rot on the Inter bench this season, with Jose Mourinho using him only on rare occasions.
Crespo is fed up simply warming the bench and he wishes to secure a move that could see him given regular first team football.
A number of clubs are thought to be keen on the striker's services. Bologna did show an interest, but the move collapsed. Sportmediaset.it now claims that Crespo is whiskers away from moving to La Primera Division.
Barcelona-based Espanyol are interested in the hitman and Inter president Massimo Moratti as well as coach Jose Mourinho could accept the transfer as they both want to trim down the size of their squad.
The only problem could be Crespo’s wages. Espanyol are unlikely to be able to offer Crespo what he is earning at Inter so the loan move will see the money question bounced back into the Italian club's hands.
It is believed the Nerazzurri are not willing to pay wages if their player moves on loan.
A permanent move is more likely for the striker as his current deal expires in the summer and Espanyol could land him on a free transfer.
