Sevilla reach agreements for Barcelona forward Munir and Ajax youngster Wober

By Sports Desk January 11, 2019

Sevilla have announced agreements for the transfers of Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi and Ajax defender Maximilian Wober.

Munir has had loan spells at Valencia and Deportivo Alaves over the previous two seasons and has failed to force himself into Ernesto Valverde's plans this term, making just 11 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.

The 23-year-old is now set to make the switch to Sevilla, with the Andalusian club – who sit third in LaLiga – confirming on Friday that they had reached an agreement in principle with Barca for a fee of €1,050,000.

Munir's transfer is subject to a successful medical and the news of his move came swiftly after Sevilla revealed they had agreed to a deal with Ajax to bring in Wober.

The defender has impressed for Erik ten Hag's side this season, making eight Eredivisie appearances and featuring in all six of Ajax's Champions League group stage games.

Sevilla will pay €10,500,000 for the 20-year-old, although the deal could rise to €11,000,000 with add-ons.

  • Klopp dismisses Coutinho rumours Klopp dismisses Coutinho rumours

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dismissed speculation Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho could return to the Premier League leaders.

    Coutinho has struggled to cement a spot in Barca's starting XI this season, having only arrived from Liverpool in a £142million deal last January.

    The Brazil international has been linked with former club Liverpool as well as Premier League rivals Manchester United.

    Asked about the rumours, Klopp told reporters: "That is something I don't want to talk about. I would not say it is a potential transfer or a likely one.

    "Nothing to say. Whatever I say would open more stories and there is no story.

    "Phil is at Barcelona and as I know he fits really well and everything is fine."

    Klopp's own future was discussed ahead of Liverpool's clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

    The German boss signed a six-year contract extension in 2016 and Klopp is not interested in a new deal at Anfield, where Liverpool are four points clear atop the table.

    "I would be really happy if they didn't come now because I don't want to think about it," Klopp said.

    "I have a long time, there will be a lot of changes before then [2022] but I don't want to think about it at the moment. I am completely in this year and next year and then we will see."
