Sevilla Ready to Return to the Charge for Luis Alberto

Sevilla are ready to make another move for Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto as they work on selling Jules Koundé to Chelsea.

The 29-year-old Spaniard reportedly handed in a transfer request to the Biancocelesti recently, keen for a breath of fresh air after six years in the Italian capital. Sevilla previously made an offer of €15 million plus Oliver Torres this summer for Luis Alberto, but Lazio turned down the idea.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Sevilla are finalising a €50m sale of Koundé to Chelsea, and once this is completed they are set to make another attempt to sign Luis Alberto.

Lazio value him at around €30m but initial indications suggest that around €25m could be enough to close out a deal, with the Biancocelesti willing to say goodbye to the Spaniard. 

Updates are expected in the coming weeks, with the future of Luis Alberto always seemingly a mystery that contains more twists and turns that a late M. Night Shyamalan film.
