Sevilla are in the market for a new defensive signing.
Both Sergio Escudero and Gabriel Mercado have been lost to injury, leaving coach Pablo Machin short at the back.
AS says Sevilla sports chief Joaquin Caparros is now returning to the free agency market for a solution.
While the defensive injuries are not long-term, meaning Sevilla are barred from buying a direct replacement, there is room in the squad for a free signing.
And Caparros is already being contacted by agents offering their clients knowing Sevilla's situation.
