Sevilla target Getafe’s Djene

Sevilla have identified Getafe defender Djene Dakonam as their number one transfer target should Clement Lenglet leave for Barcelona.

The Togolese international has excelled for Los Azulones this campaign, starting 36 La Liga games since his move from Belgian club Sint-Truden this summer.

El Desmarque cite Marca in reporting Sevilla’s interest in the 26-year-old and they would hope they could make a deal for less than his €40m release clause.

In an interview with Diario AS in February, Djene said he would be open to a move elsewhere: “I’m hopeful my work can take me to a bigger club.

“I’m happy to be here during my first season in La Liga, there is not so much pressure when you lose a game because of the club.

“The new contract has given me security over my future and right now I’m happy at the club, but who knows what will happen in the future.

“At the moment I am focused on helping Getafe obtaining our objectives this season.”

Djene previously spent two seasons in the Segunda with Alcorcon between 2014 and 2016.
