Sevilla’s third option to strengthen their defense and forget Iñigo Martínez

The last of the three options given by Monchi, is playing for AS Roma, but has just arrived in Mourinho’s squad. We are talking about the Italian – Albanian Marash Kumbulla. The probabilities of his signing to the Seville club, are increased when knowing that the defender has only played 193 minutes since he landed at the Olympic stadium in Rome.

It is clear that for the Portuguese coach it is not a key piece in his tactical system, but like the transalpine team will not let him go so easily. Kumbulla is marked at 22 kilos, but Roma paid 26.5 million euros for his signing in the summer market that happened. In this way, if they want the services of the defender, Sevilla will have to scratch their pockets with a figure greater than 27 kilos.
