According to As.com, a ‘Sevilla insider’ believes they can land Dedryk Boyata on the cheap and not have to shell out anything close to the reported £9million Fulham were offering.
The report claims Sevilla have identified Boyata as their top defensive target but do not want to spend the sort of money being quoted because of Boyata’s wish is to leave.
Celtic have hit a stalemate with the player’s agent who turned up to a Lennoxtown unannounced at the weekend and has caused unwanted friction.
The player also apparent refused to play against Hearts at the weekend, complaining of a bad back which was rather convenient.
Sevilla are hoping to strike a deal as soon as possible but Celtic are refusing to let the player go unless they find a suitable replacement.
