PSG want Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico permanently

Paris Saint-Germain want to make their loan deal for Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico permanent, according to El Mundo Deportivo.

The Spaniard is on loan in the French capital until the end of the current campaign and is primarily a back-up to Keylor Navas, who was signed on a permanent deal from Real Madrid this summer.

Rico’s contract at Sevilla expires in the summer of 2021 and it is said that while PSG want a permanent deal, they believe their €10m option to sign the player is excessive.

In this context, they are willing to negotiate with the Andalusian club for the goalkeeper, who spent last season on loan at Fulham, but he was unable to stop their relegation from the top-flight in England.

Rico has only played one match for Thomas Tuchel’s side this campaign – a 2-1 victory over Brest – but the French giants believe he represents a good number two goalkeeper for their squad.

Alphonso Areola is currently on a season-long loan deal with Real Madrid from the Parisians.
