Zapping World Eleven The schedule of the blues for the 2022 World Cup
Sevilla FC, which started its La Liga season with a 2-1 defeat on the lawn of Osasuna, would still be looking for a central defender, to compensate for the departures of Jules Koundé at Barça and Diego Carlos at Aston Villla. Sevillian coach Julen Lopetegui would have made a former Parisian his priority to strengthen his defense.
Tanguy Nianzou very close to the Andalusian club?
Sevilla’s number one track in central defense is none other than former PSG player Tanguy Nianzou (20). The Titi Parisien, who left the capital club for Bayern Munich in 2020, has only played 28 games in two seasons. A reduced playing time which could push him to look elsewhere. The Frenchman, who can also play number 6, would not be against leaving Bayern, especially since his coach Julian Nagelsmann does not really seem to be counting on him again this season. According to Fabrizio Romano, the talks between Sevilla and Bayern are progressing well. The Andalusian club even hope to complete the deal this week. Case to follow.
Exclusive: Sevilla are in advanced talks to sign Tanguy Nianzou as new center back. Negotiations ongoing with FC Bayern, Sevilla hope to get the deal done this week. 🚨⚪️🔴 #Sevilla
