Bosnia and Herzegovina midfielder Muhamed Besic is wanted by a number of Premier League clubs after an impressive showing at the World Cup finals.
However, despite the interest from England, Sky Sports understands Sevilla are leading the chase for the 21-year-old.
Besic’s performances were one of the few positive things to come out of Bosnia’s otherwise disappointing campaign in Brazil.
The German-born midfielder, who can also play in defence, is currently with Hungarian side Ferencvaros, who he joined from Hamburg in 2012.
But Besic has now emerged as a target for a host of clubs as it has been confirmed his release clause is just £2million.
Teams from Italy, Germany and France are interested, while Everton, Swansea and Sunderland are all keen to secure his services.
But Sevilla, who sold star midfielder Ivan Rakitic to Barcelona earlier this summer, are currently heading the chase.
