SD Huesca are reportedly interested in a deal to sign to bring Andriy Lunin to the club from Real Madrid on loan, according to Marca.

Madrid had hoped the Ukrainian shot-stopper’s loan spell with Leganes would provide him the opportunity of more first-team football, yet Leganes are believed to be in the market for alternative options.

During his loan spell with Los Pepineros, the 19-year-old played just two league games and, with the club unlikely to overcome a 3-0 first leg defeat in the Copa del Rey, chances of Lunin getting more opportunities to play for the remainder of the campaign look very bleak.

Opinion – Eden Hazard won’t stay at Chelsea

As Chelsea suffered defeat to Everton on Sunday, Eden Hazard will have looked around Goodison Park and thought deeply. The Belgian will see results like this as justification to move away from Stamford Bridge.

In his pre-match press conference on Friday, Leganes manager Mauricio Pellegrino made clear that his team were in the market for a new goalkeeper, and this suggests that the departure of Lunin is a possibility, as many may have thought when the transfer window opened this month.

Axel Werner has spent the first half of the season on loan at Huesca from Atletico Madrid, but he’s expected to return to the Spanish capital this month.

Aleksandar Jovanovic joined the newly promoted LaLiga side in the summer and he has proven not to be the answer to the team’s goalkeeping problems, and it seems as though a deal for Lunin could help the club in their fight against the drop.
