Bayern close in on signing of Espanyol midfielder Roca

Goal understands that Bayern Munich are closing in on the signing of Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca.

Bayern are ready to hand the 23-year-old a long-term contract at Allianz Arena, with the two clubs now working to put the finishing touches on the deal.

It has been reported that the German champions will pay €15 million (£14m/$18m) upfront for Roca, who has spent his entire career to date at Estadio Cornella-El Prat.

However, Bayern boss Hansi Flick refused to confirm the Spaniard's impending arrival when addressing the media ahead of a Bundesliga meeting with Hertha Berlin on Sunday.

"I can't say anything. I can't confirm or deny anything," he told reporters. "The focus now is not on transfers but rather the Hertha Berlin game."

Roca joined Espanyol's youth ranks in 2008 at the age of 11, before making the step up to the reserves six years later.

He eventually graduated to the senior squad in 2016, and has since appeared in 121 games for the club across all competitions, scoring three goals and laying on six assists.

Roca has also earned several caps for Spain at U21 level, but he was powerless to stop Espanyol from finishing bottom of La Liga in 2019-20.

The Barcelona-based club only managed to pick up two wins all season, but have managed to make a strong start to their first campaign back in the Spanish Segunda.

Vicente Moreno's side have recorded seven points out of a possible nine so far, with Roca appearing as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Albacete and a 0-0 draw with Mallorca.

The Bayern-bound star was sent off during the clash against Mallorca, and consequently sat out a 2-0 away victory against Oviedo on Sunday due to suspension.
