Sevilla are launching a bid for Boca Juniors striker Rodrigo Palacio.

Despite claims that Barca have struck terms with Boca for the Argentina international, it's emerged Sevilla have also made contact about a deal for the prolific forward.

Sevilla plan to fund their bid for Palacio with the sales of Daniel Alves and Seydou Keita, who are both big-money targets for Barca.
