Sevilla FC could complete a double step in the transfer market in the next few hours as Nottingham Forest are one step away from signing Marcos Acuña. The talented Argentine is not included in coach José Luis Mendilibar’s plans and a new destination for him has been sought for a long time.
Although Aston Villa seems the most likely target for Acuña, Nottingham Forest are taking a similar approach to signing Gonzalo Montiel, another Argentine who recently joined the Premier League club. Nottingham Forest see him as a valuable market opportunity despite the current injury that has ruled out the Argentina international for at least six weeks.
Nottingham Forest are looking to sign another star from Seville
Negotiations are ongoing between the clubs and, as in the case of Montiel, Acuña’s arrival could come through a loan deal with a mandatory purchase option or through a transfer worth around €10m.
With Acuña’s departure confirmed, Sevilla are already working on his replacement. The chosen one is Borna Sosa, a Croatian left-back who currently plays for VFB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. The deal is said to be worth around 7 million euros.
Víctor Orta, Seville’s sporting director, is determined to close both establishments later in the day. With the possible arrival of Sosa, Sevilla are looking to secure their defensive left flank, while Nottingham Forest could gain a good player in Marcos Acuna if they can complete the transfer.
The news of these market moves has raised high expectations among fans of both teams and the final details of these transactions are expected to be clarified in the next few hours. Sevilla and Nottingham Forest remain active in the transfer window, looking to strengthen their respective squads for the upcoming season.
