Ãlvarez In, Kameni Out

Ãlvarez, 22, made his debut for Rosario during the 2006 Copa Libertadores and has since established himself as the de facto number one at the Estadio Gigante de Arroyito.

His performances during the 2008 Apertura have attracted the interest of Espanyol sporting director Paco Herrera, who held promising talks with Rosario earlier this week.

The negotiations appear to have born fruit, as the young keeper has agreed to sign on a five-year contract according to reports in the Spanish press on Saturday.

Atlético Madrid midfielder Maxi Rodriguez has also been impressed with what he has seen of Ãlvarez, despite the fact that Rosario are the great rivals of his former side Newell's Old Boys.

"Cristian Alvarez has been of the standouts in the Clausura; he is fast, agile and has a great desire to succeed. I don't know anything of a possible transfer, but he is certainly starting to fulfill his potential," he told the newspaper 'N'Kono'.

With the signing of Ãlvarez wrapped up, Carlos Kameni now looks certain to depart at the end of the season, assuming that interested clubs are willing to pay his €6million release clause.

Tottenham Hotspur had previously shown an interest, but are thought to have pulled out of the race, leaving Valencia and Manchester United as his two potential suitors according to 'AS'.
