Sevilla are hopeful of completing two new signings before the transfer window closes, according to reports in Spain.
Italian-based duo Stevan Jovetic and Adam Masina – Inter striker and full-back at Bologna respectively – are the two priorities at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, according to Marca.
The club’s qualification for the Champions League group stages has increased the budget available to Coach Eduardo Berizzo with left-back and striker seen as the two main priority positions.
Los Rojiblancos have already made seven signings this summer but are yet to replace the departing Benoit Tremoulinas to provide competition for first-choice left-back Sergio Escudero.
Masina has been identified as the main target following Corinthians insistence that they would not sell Guilherme Arana this summer.
Jovetic netted six goals in 21 appearances for Los Rojiblancos after a loan deal with the Milanese club in January but despite negotiations earlier this summer, no agreement for a permanent move was found.
The Andalucians have already signed forwards Nolito and Luis Muriel this summer to compliment Wissam Ben Yedder.
