Sevilla confirm transfer targets

Sevilla sporting director Oscar Arias has confirmed the club are in negotiations with Jesus Navas, Simon Kjaer and Stevan Jovetic.

Having replaced Monchi in the role earlier this year, Los Rojiblancos have already made five signings this summer but are keen on further reinforcements.

“Yesterday we made a proposal to his agent and they are studying it, we are expecting a response soon,” Arias told reporters when asked about Jesus Navas on Tuesday.

“I understand that their intention is to reach an understanding with us and with the player – these kinds of situations have to be resolved as quickly as possible for the benefit of everyone involved.

“Simon Kjaer? We are working on a deal but do not want to discuss it any further as it can damage negotiations, which is always the case.

“Stevan Jovetic? He is still an option for us and whilst it has never been easy, he is a player that everyone likes and the possibility of a signing is still open.

“Steven N’Zonzi? There are no offers for him and he will stay with us.”
