Alexandre Djiku has signed a three-year deal with Spanish giants Sevilla with the option of a one-year extension. However, La Liga’s form does not yet meet the requirements of French club Strasbourg.
Sevilla’s initial €6m bid has been rejected, but an improved deal is being prepared for a centre-back. Villarreal’s rivals are keeping an eye on the player and could outperform Sevilla for his service if centre-back Pau Torres leaves this summer. Sevilla have already lost defender Diego Carlos to Aston Villa and are looking to replace him with the Ghana national team.
Djiku scored one goal in 31 matches for Strasbourg in the recently ended French Ligue 1 season. The 27-year-old was absent from the opening match of the 223 African Cup of Nations for personal reasons and is not participating in the Kirin Cup tournament. He was a key member of the team that brought Ghana to the 222 World Cup.
