It is not usually at all usual in the sports general director of the Seville, but without a doubt, the immobility of the market due to the dispute of the Eurocup and the uncertainty about the future of Jules
Kooundé, which can become the great summer sale that changes and sets the tone for planning, Monchi has more stopped than the account before the surprise of Sevilla fans, who know well how the Cadiz spends them in the market.
Only one incorporation, that of Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, who was ending his contract at Eibar, has arrived in the Sevilla dressing room for the time being on the day the team starts off at the start of the preseason.
The preparation of the template generates, today, many unknowns. To begin with, the biggest of them is what will happen to Koundé, which can also economically mark the direction that the planning takes, since Sevilla only considers a transfer of many, many million euros, above 65 or 70 million and even closer if possible to the amount of his termination clause, which is 80 million. The big clubs are fighting over the young Frenchman, for whom already last summer the Andalusian club rejected an offer of 55 million from Manchester City. That already gives a reference to Sevilla’s claims and the player has grown even more since that decision. To begin with, he has made his debut with the senior French team.
However, the European Championship has not been the showcase that was expected for Koundé, who only played one game with France and as a right-back, also not being very lucky and committing a penalty against Portugal. Monchi may have two different ‘Sevillas’ designed depending on whether Koundé is or, on the contrary, his millions are in the planning, with which the level of reinforcements would be significantly different.
Something similar, although on a smaller scale, happens with Youssef En-Nesyri, author of 24 goals last season and for whom West Ham and Tottenham have been interested in the Premier, although the club and the player hope that one of the big ones.
You have to look for two laterals in the market, one right and one left
In terms of incorporations, Monchi will have to search the market for two full-backs, one right and one left after the departure of Aleix Vidal and Escudero, while Lopetegui’s desire is also to change some stickers in other positions, such as in the center of the field. , where Gudelj can give way to another relief for Koundé, or in the attack, which regardless of what happens with En-Nesyri, both De Jong and Munir have possibilities of leaving. Lopetegui does have a great asset there in the return of Bryan Gil after his successful assignment at Eibar and his internationality with Spain.
Likewise, in the center of the defense incorporations will take place and if Koundé leaves there will be several arrivals in a position in which Diego Carlos will continue, although he also has suitors in the market.
