Dedryck Boyata’s agent has already revealed his client’s form for Celtic and Belgium (at the 2018 World Cup) saw him attract interest from several Premier League clubs, which was turned down by Brendan Rodgers’ side.
On August 13th, HLN claimed the defender is on a ‘collision course’ with the Bhoys as he tries to push for a move away from the club. The report also mentioned Sevilla was presented as a possible destination, but there was nothing concrete.
Today’s edition of Spanish newspaper AS also reiterates the player’s desire to leave the Scottish champions as Pablo Machin’s side are ‘speeding up’ their efforts in signing the 27-year-old and Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán could be his next destination.
Another report from La Colina de Nervion mentions the La Liga outfit have accelerated their efforts to sign the Celtic centre-back in the last hours, as a replacement for Nicolás Pareja, who is expected to leave Sevilla.
Boyata’s contract with his current employers runs down in 2019 and thus, it should not be tough to negotiate with Celtic for their player. The Spanish side could bring him to the club for a fee close to €10m.
