Sevilla are ‘delighted’ with Leicester City midfielder Boubakary Soumaré and want him permanently, but his €14m price tag is ‘excessive’ at this point.

That’s according to Vamos Mi Sevilla, who explain that the Spanish side will try and get a reduction from Leicester on the purchase clause they agreed as part of Soumaré’s loan deal.

They explain that Sevilla have decisions to make when it comes to the summer, with three of the current squad on loan and with active purchase clauses included in those loans.

Soumaré is one of them and the club is ‘delighted’ with him, even considering his €14m clause as a good price given his ability and the development he’s shown this season.

The problem is that the figure is ‘excessive’ for the Spanish club at this moment in time, with finances tight and set to be hit again in the summer as they’ll be without the extra income from European football unless there is a dramatic, surprising turn of events.

They want to renegotiate that figure with Leicester and are hoping that the player’s will to secure the move as well as the Foxes’ ‘little interest’ in counting on him after he forced through a move in the summer end up working in their favour.
