Sevilla line-up Alejo signing

Sevilla lead the chase to sign highly-rated Eibar winger Ivan Alejo but may have to wait until summer to conclude a deal, say reports in Spain.

The 22-year-old only signed for the Basque club in summer for La Liga 123 outfit Alcorcon, but his string of impressive performances has led to interest from other clubs.

A report in ABC de Sevilla outlines how Los Rojiblancos are keen on concluding a deal and will wait until next summer to pay his €15m release clause.

Valencia are said to be one of a number of Spanish clubs interested in Alejo, who missed September and October through a knee injury but has excelled in Eibar’s recent run of five victories in six – scoring once and assisting three times.
