Sevilla-target Dost rescinds contract

Sporting CP striker and Dutch international Bas Dost, a reported transfer target for Sevilla, has rescinded his contract in Portugal.

The 29-year-old scored 34 goals in 49 games for Sporting over the past season but has reportedly requested to leave the Lisbon club on a free transfer.

The Lisbon-based club are in a state of disarray after several of their players rescinded their contracts, although it has yet to be confirmed if such cancellations are legally-binding.

Earlier this month, Estadio Deportivo reported Sevilla’s interest with new Coach Pablo Machin hopeful of a ‘Cristhian Stuani-type’ target man, similar to his system at Girona last season.

Dost matches Sevilla’s profile, given he is ‘tall and a reference point but has quality and moves well in the box’, more so than current options Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel.

Portugal internationals Rui Patricio, Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho and Gelson Martins have also attempted to cancel their contracts at Sporting, along with Daniel Podence
