Gabri is doubtful about moving to The Premiership because he does not want to force his family to move abroad, despite interest from several English clubs .
After announcing that he was quitting Barcelona following seven years in the first team, the utility player has been linked with a move to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur and was the subject of a bid from West Ham United in the winter transfer window.
The player's agent, Josep Maria Orobitg, confirmed recently that the most lucrative offer had come from a London club, but Gabri is tempted by a switch across his native city to Espanyol.
"There a lot of teams interested in me and we are talking about it," Gabri told COM Radio. "We are looking at the best option.
"I have to decide where I would like to go and live and whether I want to move abroad or stay here. I will make the decision with my family.
"When I was at Barca, I was always said that when I left I would like to play in a different league and try something new, but after the birth of my son, my mentality has changed.
"There are times when I think it would be good to move as near as possible and Espanyol is a possibility, but I have not decided anything yet."
