There are two days of infarction left: Sevilla is working on a striker, on muscle for the spinal cord… and Januzaj is about to fall!
The closure of summer transfer market promises not to be suitable for the faint of heart. It was clear that the Sevilla F.C. he needed to fix his poor planning in recent days that Monchi himself – who has seen his work criticized as few or no times – predicted “tumultuous”; but the rain of news on several fronts draws a ‘mini-revolution’ in the Nervion complex, where there are open negotiations for the output of Lucas Ocampos and the arrival of a striker, a defensive midfielder… and Adnan Januzaj!
The great priority of Sevilla FC in these last days of the transfer period is the hiring a ‘9’ scorer, with transfer of Raúl de Tomás as a preferential option despite offers for Lucas Boye and Umar Sadiqwith Elche CF and UD Almería trying to get the most out of such a late operation. In 20 kilos they have valued the Argentine, something else they ask for the Nigerian and the loan of the Spanish international, between some things and others, requires an expense of about 8 million.
Financing this operation will only be possible with the advanced departure of Lucas Ocampos to Ajaxalthough the thing does not stay in the ‘9’, as various sources continue to point to the common desire of Monchi and Lopetegui to gain muscle in the center of the field -where Interesting offers still do not appear for the Gudelj, Delaney or Óliver Torres– and now the return to the forefront of the media is surprising for a classic on Sevilla FC’s agenda: free agent Adnan Januzaj, who is about to drop.
According to the well-known Italian journalist Roman Fabrizio, Sevilla FC and Januzaj’s agents are holding advanced conversations that they trust to be able to conclude today, coinciding with the close outcome that is expected between Ajax and Ocampos, a parent operation that would open salary margin and would leave just over 20 million euros to reinvest in more signings. The Belgian, who had been recently tested by the English West Hamwould welcome the option of landing in Nervión.
Januzaj claims a ‘top’ card and signing bonus
Januzaj, a 27-year-old Belgian international, finds himself without a team after terminate his contract with Real Sociedad and to wait patiently all summer waiting for a bidder willing to pay the 3.5 million euros net that he was claiming as a token, to which another 6 kilos would have to be added as a signing premium. In addition to these figures, the reappearance of the name of Januzaj has been surprising for assuming a nth turn in the drawn profile.
If in the beginning they were looking for a winger who could act as a forward contemplating the departure of a Munir El Haddadi -who insists on staying at Sevilla FC- and then the bad start to the season invited him to switch to a ‘9’ finisher, right now it would be working on both waysthe striker and the winger, which a priori would make it difficult for a midfielder to arrive unless there are more departures or the club decides not register Tecatito Corona, injured for three months.
In this sense, various media in France have been accusing Seko Fofana for days27-year-old pivot for Lens and with a contract until 2024, although to date there is nothing advanced and other sources categorically deny that alleged offer of 28 million that had transpired in the Gallic country.
