A recent report from France has linked Sevilla with a move for Everton loanee Djibril Sidibe.
Everton land Sidibe
Sidibe endured a somewhat hit and miss 2018/19 campaign on the books of a struggling AS Monaco side.
The defender was, as a result, loaned out to Premier League outfit Everton for the current campaign.
The Troyes youth product has since gone on to enjoy a fairly solid debut campaign in England.
All told, the Frenchman has lined out 24 times across all competitions for the Toffees this term.
In these ties, Sidibe has provided five assists, and impressed in both a right-back and right-midfield role.

Sevilla interested in Everton loanee
When Sidibe’s move to Merseyside was confirmed, it was claimed that Everton had an option to purchase the full-back outright at the end of the loan, though no specific fee was mentioned.
And given the fact that Sidibe has had a solid 2019/20 to date, one would imagine that Everton would be fairly happy to take up such an option.
According to L’Equipe, the stopper’s purchase option was originally set at €14m. However, the same report alleged that Monaco are ready to cut their asking price for Sidibe, to ensure that he makes a permanent move to Merseyside this summer.
Now, though, despite all signs seemingly pointing towards Sidibe moving to England on a permanent basis, Everton could be set to face competition for the right-back’s signature.
According to a recent report from RMC Sport, La Liga outfit Sevilla, who are in search of a new right-back, have shown an interest in the Everton loanee.
The report also adds that the Spanish side ‘surveyed the entourage’ of Sidibe.
