Premier League clubs in hot race for Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico

Following the departure of Vincenzo Montella, Sevilla are set for some big changes in their squad and first up is a fight to keep Sergio Rico, with several Premier League clubs calling for the Spaniard.

Both Watford and Arsenal are looking to strengthen the goalkeeping position and are looking towards Rico as a possible signing.

Unai Emery knows the keeper well after coaching him at Sevilla, although Petr Cech remains under contract with the North London club for the 2018/19 season.

David Soria is also touted to leave the Andalusian club this summer, so new coach Pablo Machin will likely target a goalkeeper as part of his summer transfer plans.

Yassine ‘Bono’ Bounou impressed at Girona last season, whilst Joel Pereira is another target after a season in which he played very little football with Manchester United, and both are thought to be on Sevilla’s watch list.
