Sevilla are eyeing a loan move for Chelsea outcast Malang Sarr ahead of the January window to strengthen their defence.

According to Fichajes, Malang Sarr has emerged on Sevilla’s radar ahead of January. The Spanish strugglers would seek talks with Chelsea to request them to loan out the 24-year-old defender for the remainder of the season to strengthen their backline.

Sevilla are eyeing Malang Sarr

Sevilla have struggled for relevance this season, and their campaign could get much worse if results continue to evade them. Quique Sanchez Flores became their latest managerial appointment, and he has since secured a victory and defeat in two games.

Amid all the injury problems they have in their backline and the financial troubles the club is in currently, they need to be able to pay big for new players. Instead, Sevilla will focus on loaning players who could stabilise their already disastrous season.

The Sevilla directors have identified Chelsea’s outcast Malang Sarr as a potential option to strengthen their defence. The 24-year-old defender has no place in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and remains out of matchday squads.

Sevilla will seek talks with Chelsea to request a loan deal for the 24-year-old defender, hoping the Blues will sanction the move and help them. Whether that’s also the player’s choice remains the question.

Chelsea keen on a sale

Chelsea are eager to raise funds to balance their books for FFP, and will look at unwanted players to raise funds. Sarr remains outside Pochettino’s first team and is an ideal player through which Chelsea can gain some money in the market.

The Blues are keen on selling Sarr, but they might sanction a loan if it comes with guarantees from Sevilla. For instance, they might push for a mandatory purchase clause in June, something Sevilla might oppose and counter with an option to buy condition.

Sarr’s agents have recently held talks with Turkish clubs as they seek a solution for their client ahead of the January market. Sevilla, for their part are willing to make an effort, and could entice the 24-year-old defender by offering him a chance to stay in one of the top five European leagues for now.
