A scorer in the Bundesliga is the alternative plan to the signing of the Dutch striker according to the Sevilla sports director who has been following him for months
The offensive plot of Sevilla F.C. remains the priority of Monchi but the striker Memphis DePay is no longer option A. While it is true that the club nervión He has been tracking the steps of the Dutchman and put him on his list when he found out that FC Barcelona does not have him. But it is no longer what both the sports director and Jorge Sampaoli are looking for.
The plan B He is also a goalscorer focused on Qatar but this one plays for the Selection France. We are talking about the Borussia Mönchengladbach striker, Marcus Thuram. The player was called up by Didier Deschamps at the last minute due to Karim Benzema’s injury. Although he is not a starter, he has played in both games against Australia and Denmark. Sampaoli told Monchi that he is the ideal one if he does not come Memphis Depay.
Although the contract of the Memphis alternative is about to end, Monchi knows that his signing is difficult
Marcus Thuram is playing his fourth and perhaps last season with the German club, as his contract expires at the end of it. There will be no renewal and that is already agreed between both parties. For this reason, the Bavarian team wants to do business with him in January and of the 30 kilos in which he is valued, they will only ask for 10.
For this reason there are several teams that are following the signing of the French goalscorer and Sevilla is not among the first. No more in LaLiga Santander in addition to the Nervión team are Atlético and Real Sociedad. In Italy it is Inter Milan, and in England Newcastle and Liverpool are fighting side by side for his contract.
Memphis changes to plan B and Thuram to plan A but Monchi knows that this can change
Just as the Dutch forward was the first option for the Seville team, he has changed to plan B since Thuram is the one who escalated to that favoritism. However, the signing of the Frenchman is not at all easy and Monchi knows that his signing could go away as teams like Newcastle put money on the table.
If this happens, Memphis Depay would return to Monchi’s agenda as the priority signing that Sevilla needs from January. However, the player would only arrive at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán until the end of the first month of 2023, since he must play the three days in which Robert Lewandowski is suspended with Barcelona.
