Alderweireld to replace Fazio?

Toby Alderweireld could leave Atletico Madrid and replace Tottenham Hotspur-bound Federico Fazio at Sevilla.

AS cite reports from Belgium that say Alderweireld is unsettled with his role in the champions’ squad as he can’t get past first-choice centre-backs Miranda and Diego Godin.

Jose Gimenez is rivalling Alderweireld as first-choice back-up and with Cristian Ansaldi and Jesus Gamez both able to play centrally, Alderweireld’s situation isn’t expected to improve.

Monaco and a number of Premier League teams are said to be interested but Het Nieuwsblad has today linked Alderweireld with Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Any move would likely be a loan rather than a permanent transfer, however, as Atletico don’t want to let Alderweireld go.
