MADRID - Spanish Liga side Espanyol have signed Argentinian goalkeeper Cristian Alvarez, the club said Wednesday.
Alvarez, 23, has been signed from Argentine club Rosario Central for an undisclosed fee, and become Espanyol's first summer signing.
He has signed a five-year contract with Espanyol, and will join the Catalan club in June after the end of the Argentine Apertura tournament.
The signing of Alvarez was suggested by Espanyol's goalkeeper coach Thomas N'Kono, who played for Cameroon at the 1982 World Cup finals.
