Sevilla set to sign record Muriel

Sevilla are reportedly “hours away” from making Sampdoria striker Luis Muriel their record signing for €20m.

According to Marca, a deal has been agreed for Muriel to join Sevilla after “weeks” of negotiations for the Colombian.

The newspaper explains Samp were never going to budge on their €20m valuation, while Everton and West Ham United were also in the running.

The 26-year-old, who scored 13 goals in 33 appearances for the Italians last season, admitted only on Friday that he would “love” to play in La Liga.

He is expected to land in Seville shortly to undergo a medical and formalise his transfer, although details of his contract have not been disclosed.
