Nigerian Umar Sadiq this winter already sounded like a future for the front of the Seville. The stocky scorer of the Almeria, 24 years old, will not be able to fulfill his dream of going up to First with the rojiblanco team, already out of the promotion playoffs. Thus, his name has reappeared linked to the future of the Seville In view of the fact that his agents do not want the player to remain another year in the Second Division.
However, Sevilla manages a wide range of strikers, the majority with more curriculum than the African, in the event that any of the three points that Lopetegui has right now in his squad, the Moroccans En-Nesyri and Munir and the Dutch De Jong. ‘Marca’ defends that Sadiq is a real target for Monchi and Lopetegui, but the truth is that, for example, the priority before the Almería footballer is Joselu Mato, Alavés forward.
Munir is the forward with the most options to come out, since Lopetegui showed at the end of last season that he does not have him. Alavés is one of the interested clubs and it would also facilitate Joselu's option, although the former Barcelona player is not too attracted to the idea of returning to Vitoria. In the Netherlands, PSV Eindhoven seems to have the financial muscle to repatriate De Jong after the European Championship, but so far nothing has moved.
In the case of En-Nesyri, it will only come out if an offer of more than 45 million euros arrives, with several interested Premier clubs.
For the incorporation of Sadiq, Sevilla would have to part with a large sum, similar to what it paid in its day for En-Nesyri, 20 million euros, and although the player likes Lopetegui and Monchi, the truth is that their numbers either they are for that.
