Sevilla fear being gazumped by Real Madrid for Lyon striker Mariano Diaz

Sevilla fear being gazumped by Real Madrid in their push to sign Olympique Lyon striker Mariano Diaz.

Sevilla are in advanced talks to sign Mariano, with a confidence that a deal can be closed on Tuesday morning.

However, AS says Sevilla intermediaries have learned Real are also keen on the striker, who left them only a year ago for France.

Real coach Julen Lopetegui wants a new No9 added to his squad before this week's transfer deadline and Mariano fits the bill.

Real enjoy first refusal on the player for a price of €40m. They also hold 35 per cent of Mariano's registration, meaning they would only have to pay €28m to re-sign the striker.
