Sevilla move for Girona’s Portu

Sevilla have made a move for Girona forward Cristian Portugues – known as Portu – and hope to complete a deal this week, say reports in Spain.

The 26-year-old netted 11 times in 37 appearances for the Catalan club last year and was instrumental under Coach Pablo Machin, who is now at Los Rojiblancos.

The Valencia youth graduate joined Girona in 2016 and was instrumental in their promotion campaign in 2017 before starring in La Liga.

Girona are said to point to Portu’s €20m release clause and are not willing to negotiate below this amount.
