Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has landed in Andalusia ahead of completing his season-long loan to Sevilla.
Estadio Deportivo snapped Sirigu touching down at San Pablo airport late on Thursday and signing an autograph for a Sevilla fan.
Sevilla are not entitled to a purchase option for the Italy international but will pay only €1.5m of his €3.4m salary, with PSG covering the rest.
The Europa League holders had made a new goalkeeper a priority after Beto’s departure and an injury to David Soria left Sergio Rico their only fit, senior shot-stopper.
Sirigu will now undergo a medical with Sevilla, who in turn must tie up loose ends with the French giants.
Sevilla President Jose Castro hinted that a deal was close on Thursday as he cryptically told ED: “The market livens up in its final days.”
