The unnamed player is said to be an attacking midfielder with 12 years experience in the Spanish top flight. 

Perth Glory coach Kenny Lowe says he was amused when hearing Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold’s claims that the Sky Blues were the fittest team in the Hyundai A-League.

If the deal came off and the player was anywhere near the level of the talismanic goal machine Castro, it would be a huge boost for Glory and the league. 

Castro, 34, formerly of Getafe and Sporting Gijon, arrived two seasons ago and had an instant impact winning the best player in the league in his first season (the Johnny Warren Medal) and finishing runner up to Milos Ninkovic in the season just completed. 

The Spanish winger has also re-signed for a third campaign in purple, as Glory look to build on their eye-catching semi final finish from last season. 

Diego Castro is one of a host of Spaniards that will play in the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season.

Glory’s next match will be a pre-season friendly with Chilean side Audax Italiano on July 12 at nib.
