Saturday’s edition of ABC Sevilla reported interest from Sevilla in Mohammed Salisu.
The 20 year old central defender has been impressing with Real Valladolid, breaking through this season having joined the club in 2017.
Sevilla being linked has led to further reports in the Spanish media, and Pucela Fichajes, who specialise in Valladolid transfers, claim there’s also interest from Everton, Newcastle United and Schalke.
Those three clubs have joined Sevilla in watching the young defender this season, and he’s described as a ‘revelation’ due to his performances.
Salisu has a €12m buyout clause in his contract, with Pucela insisting Valladolid have no intention of negotiating that figure down. Should Everton and Newcastle interest be genuine, the figure probably isn’t one which would cause too many problems for them.
It’s the Sevilla interest which would be the most worrying for the Premier League clubs, with moving upwards in La Liga likely a big temptation.
Real Valladolid haven’t ruled out an extension, which would almost certainly see an increase in the clause.
