Former Newcastle United striker Joselu could be in line for a shock move to La Liga giants Sevilla this summer.
The Spaniard – who was sold to Alaves for just £2.5million in 2019 – has impressed this season and scored 11 goals for the club in a campaign that saw him play alongside NUFC loanee Florian Lejeune.
His physical style of play makes him a handful in La Liga, and MARCA – one o the leading outlets in Spain – are now reporting that Sevilla are in talks to sign him – also revealing that he has a £17m release clause in his current deal.
That figure will sound alien to Toon supporters who had to endure two years of terrible performances from Joselu, who bagged just 7 in 52 while plying his trade on Tyneside.
To make matters even more ironic, MARCA state that he’s been targeted to replace non other than Luuk de Jong; another Toon flop who endured one of the most forgettable loan spells at St James’ Park we’ve ever seen – and there’s been plenty of those!
The Dutchman is reportedly eyeing up a move to his homeland with boyhood club PSV Eindhoven his preferred destination.
As for Joselu, it’s good to see the hard-working Spaniard doing well for himself in Spain, with this now being two seasons on the spin that he’s got into double figures!
