Monchi has been vocal in his desire to freshen up Sevilla’s squad. Bryan Gil was sold to Tottenham Hotspur in exchange for €25m plus Erik Lamela, while Jules Kounde is on the market. Julen Lopetegui is keen to build upon Sevilla’s fourth-place finish in La Liga last season, a campaign that saw them reach the semi-final of the Copa del Rey and the last 16 of the Champions League; they lost to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
Corona, born in Sonora, is a winger who can double up as a right-back. He joined Porto from Twente back in 2015, who he in turn joined from Mexican side Monterrey in 2013. Montiel, a right-back, was born in Gonzalez Catan. He’s spent his entire career at River, breaking into their first team in 2016.
