Sevilla FC have clearly charted their path in the transfer market and three names stand out from the list of players set to explore new horizons in the coming days. The America tour of José Luis Mendilibar’s team was the scene that defined the fate of these footballers: Idrissi, Delaney and Óscar Rodríguez.
Rony Lopes has already said goodbye to Braga while Augustinsson is about to. For his part, Januzaj has several options on the table after playing over Turkey’s Istanbul Basaksehir last season. The list of figures announced by the club did not include the two players who remain in Seville, despite there being two vacancies. Still, names like Gonzalo Montiel and Rafa Mir, who are on the launch pad, popped up on the list.
The 3 new Sevilla players standing on the launch pad
The surprise was the absence of Óscar Rodríguez, who has secured his transfer to Alavés, as confirmed by sporting director Víctor Orta. The Madrid midfielder, who has barely featured on the US and Mexico tour, will start his third loan spell as a Sevilla player and will be looking for minutes and development in his game.
Another name to stand out is that of Oussama Idrissi, the Moroccan of Dutch origin who is about to join Damac FC in the Saudi Pro League. His presence as a testimonial on the American tour marked the beginning of his journey away from Seville.
For his part, Thomas Delaney was also mentioned as a possible departure. Although he starred in the derby against Betis, competition at his position including the arrival of Djibril Sow has diminished his playing opportunities this season.
These three players, Idrissi, Delaney and Óscar Rodríguez, share the search for a new goal to continue their professional career. Sevilla FC have given clear signals on their restructuring plans and now it’s up to them to find a place where their talent can shine in this new phase.
