Sevilla bid for Villa’s Amavi

Sevilla have contacted English Championship side Aston Villa to negotiate for left full back Jordan Amavi, according to reports in Spain.

Marca state Los Rojiblancos have offered €5m for the defender although the Birmingham-based club are demanding that amount for the player who made 34 appearances in the Championship last season.

This follows up on a report in Diario de Sevilla which claimed the Andalucians are hopeful of a deal for the Frenchman following the departure of Benoit Tremoulinas earlier this summer.

Sevilla are now on the market for a backup to Sergio Escudero and have previously registered an interest in Amavi, who joined Villa from Nice in 2015.
