Sevilla on the verge of Rebic deal

Croatia international Ante Rebic has emerged as a target for Sevilla with the Andalusian club on the verge of agreeing a €20m deal.

The 24-year-old winger signed for Fiorentina from RNK Split in August 2013, but with just eight appearances under his belt for the Italians has since been loaned out to RB Leipzig, Hellas Verona and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Having spent the last two seasons on loan with the German outfit, his transfer was made permanent when Eintracht exercised their option to purchase Rebic for €2m at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, which he rounded off by scoring a brace in the DFB-Pokal final against Bayern Munich.

Rebic is able to operate on both wings or behind a main striker, roles he performed in this summer’s World Cup in Russia where he started every game in Croatia’s run to the final, apart from the group game against Iceland when qualification for the knockout stages was already assured.

Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo report that Rebic has also been the subject of interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, although Sevilla now appear to be in pole position and expect a deal to be completed in the next few days.
