Leicester City duo Boubakary Soumaré and Wilfred Ndidi could be reunited at Sevilla in the summer, with director of football Victor Orta eyeing up both players.
That’s according to Estadio Deportivo, who say the Sevilla director is already planning ahead for a re-shape of the squad next summer and Leicester are very much in his eyeline.
The newspaper explains that Orta knows he has a lot of work ahead of him in the coming months and does not want to waste time planning ahead.
First, he has to decide what to do with Soumaré, who is on loan at the Spanish club until the end of the season. That deal includes a purchase option worth €15m but whether that is exercised will be dependent on the budget available to Orta.
If it is the latter and he exercises the option for Soumaré, then another player will be signed alongside him and that could be his Leicester teammate Ndidi.
His contract expires next summer and he’s free to negotiate with clubs from January 1st on a pre-contract agreement. That is something Orta ‘would be trying’ to arrange.
He’s met an early resistance from the player, though, who has made it clear that his plans would initially be to continue in the Premier League if he receives a good offer.
If he doesn’t then Sevilla are there, ready to make their move and potentially reunite him with his Foxes teammate.
