Wigan Athletic appear to be close to signing Paraguay international and Borussia Dortmund striker Nelson Valdez, well they do according to BBC match commentator Jonathan Pearce any way.
During the commentary of last night`s Paraguay v`s Spain World Cup ╝ final Jonathan Pearce could be clearly heard breaking the news that Valdez is very close to joining Wigan Athletic.
Of course we were linked with a move for Valdez back in May and a deal was almost struck then, so it just might have been agreed in principle and now that Paraguay are out of the World Cup the hard working player could be ready to form a new strike force alongside our other new signing Mauro Boselli.
Valdez is a similar style to Liverpool and Holland player Dirk Kuyt (though not as ugly) and the 26 year old striker like Kuyt isn`t a prolific goal scorer, he joined Dortmund from Werder Bremen in 2006 where he had spent five seasons making 113 appearances and scoring 31 goals for the Bundesliga club, in his time with current employers he has made 112 appearances scoring just 16 goals, he seems to be more of a provider than a taker.
