If the latest reports are anything to go by, then German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich will be announcing the capture of Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca who is being linked with English Premier League club Arsenal.

The Spanish midfielder has been on the radar of manager Mikel Arteta and was believed to be an alternative to Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partety but the Gunners failed to make any tangible bid for his signature.

Marc Roca is one of the best players on the books of the Spanish team but he was helpless in having them avoid relegation last season. He is very much available in the summer transfer window, especially if he will be assured of a return to top-flight football.

Bayern Munich have also been interested in the signature of Marc Roca for a long time and they made a failed attention in the winter transfer window earlier in the year.

Espanyol are demanding for 40 million euros for the signature of Marc Roca as they are also struggling to pay his wages. Marca reports that the player is on his way to Germany to have his medical with the Europan champions and is expected to be confirmed by the club before the summer transfer window is shut on Monday.
