Sevilla eyeing West Brom midfielder Yacob as Banega replacement

Claudio Yacob has emerged on the radar of Spanish club Sevilla.

According to the Daily Mirror, the West Bromwich Albion midfielder is a £3.5million target for Sevilla who are planning for the summer departure of Ever Banega.

Argentine ace Banega is being heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan and Los Rojiblancos are eager to put a contingency plan in place in case he exits the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

28-year-old Yacob is under contact with the Baggies until the summer of 2017 but could be persuaded to leave The Hawthorns if the West Midlands club are involved in a relegation battle.
