Sevilla, Napoli chase Jonny

Sevilla and Napoli both want Celta Vigo full back Jonny Castro, although the Galician club are unwilling to sell for less than €18m release clause.

Reports in Diario AS state the Italian giants have already have a €10m offer knocked back by Os Celestes, who have no intention of selling the highly-rated 23-year-old.

Comfortable playing either in the heart of right-hand side of the defence, Jonny has racked up 157 La Liga appearances since graduating through Celta’s academy and is a mainstay of the Spain Under 21 squad.

The report quotes the defender stating in December he would consider leaving Balaidos to further his career, although his current deal has two further years left to run.

Sevilla are also said to be in the market for the Vigo-native, with Coach Eduardo Berizzo recently switching between the clubs.
