Sevilla striker Chevanton explains Atalanta move

Sevilla striker Javier Chevanton has explained his loan move to Atalanta.

The Sevilla ace will move to Serie A on 1st January after a loan deal until the end of the season was agreed.

Chevanton has sunk down the pecking order at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with the likes of Luis Fabiano, Fredi Kanoute, Alvaro Negredo and Arouna Kone all ahead of him.

He has now agreed to join Atalanta, primarily in order to secure a place in Uruguay's World Cup squad.

"I have an objective and that is to play in the World Cup finals next year with the Uruguayan national team and that's why I have said that the transfer to Atalanta is important for me," he said.
