Seville derby for Marcos Llorente?

Real Betis and Sevilla are reportedly set to battle it out for Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente.

According to AS, Madrid are prepared to sell Llorente for €10-12m but only with a buyback clause.

The newspaper explains Sevilla will target Llorente if Steven N’Zonzi joins Unai Emery’s Arsenal, although keeping Swansea City-owned Roque Mesa is another option.

Betis would also be in the race for the 23-year-old, but Vice-President Lorenzo Serra Ferrer is said to be prioritising a deal for ex-Newcastle United loanee Mikel Merino.

Llorente only returned to Madrid from a loan spell with Alaves last summer but started just five times in La Liga during the 2017-18 campaign.
