Sevilla could turn to Premiership target Sidney Govou in their quest for attacking reinforcements.
The Uefa Cup holders are keen to bring in a new forward during the summer and had been sweet on David Suazo.
But reaching a deal with Suazo's Italian club Cagliari has proved problematic and a change in targets has now taken place.
Govou is likely to leave Lyon before the transfer deadline, although the French champions have set his value at £7 million.
That figure is unlikely to be beyond Sevilla's reach, with reports in Spain suggesting a bid is being put together.
Sevilla's Liga rivals Valencia have been cast as admirers of Govou, while his former Lyon coach Paul Le Guen - now at Rangers - remains a fan.
In The Premiership, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Fulham, Manchester City and Middlesbrough have all been linked with the France international.
