Valencia CF to sign Alaves's Joselu for free

Valencia CF is working to sign Alaves's striker Joselu for free this summer as his contract is due to expire in the summer, and he has made the decision to continue elsewhere. Valencia CF were thinking of purchasing the player this transfer window in case they were able to sell Maxi Gomez, but since that didn't pan out the club has decided to sign a personal deal with the player and acquire him for free the coming summer. 

Joselu is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for Deportivo Alav├ęs in La Liga and has featured 22 times, scored 10 goals and provided 2 assists. Impressive achievements considering Alaves are at the bottom of the table with just 17 points out of 22 matches and struggling as a team. They've scored 16 goals in La Liga with 10 of those coming from Joselu. 

Valencia CF plans to sell Maxi Gomez in the summer as the player has failed to prove himself for over 3 years now and under several different coaches, so there is no excuse of a coach not knowing how to utilize him or any of that. They plan to sell him for whatever amount they can get for him and replace him him Joselu for free. Maxi Gomez is also one of the highest earners so just removing his high salary would provide room for new arrivals.
