On deadline day, Sevilla signed Boubakary Soumaré from Leicester City on a loan deal with an option to buy.
The midfielder was a regular for the Foxes last season, where they were relegated from the Premier League. In 2021, Leicester reportedly paid €20m to acquire his signature from Lille.
AS have interviewed the 24-year-old and asked why he wasn’t able to ‘succeed’ at the King Power Stadium.
“I can only say good things, even if collectively we were relegated. In England, I have grown and progressed in many aspects. Now I hope to do even better here,” he said.
Earlier this month, Sevilla sporting director Víctor Orta heaped praise on the Frenchman for making financial sacrifices to arrive at the Spanish club.
AS point out there was a talk of interest from Serie A winners Napoli and their league rivals AC Milan.
When asked about his decision to pick the Europa League winners over the Italian clubs, Soumaré explained: “Víctor Orta convinced me about the project, which is what also seduces other footballers. And I’m going to work as hard as I can to justify coming.”
Soumaré could be in line to make his Sevilla debut when they host Las Palmas on Sunday.
