Sevilla consider appointing Laurent Blanc

Sevilla have identified former France and Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc as their new permanent Coach, say reports.

Marca cite a report in Le Parisien that the former central defender, who represented Barcelona during his playing career, is the prime target for Los Rojiblancos.

The Madrid outlet verifies this report but claims there is no rush from the Andalusian club and any move may depend on their qualification for the Champions League next season.

Joaquin Caparros is currently the Coach of the club, having replaced the dismissed Pablo Machin last month, but it is unclear if he will continue in the role beyond the summer.

Sevilla lie fifth in the standings and one point behind Getafe, in fourth.
