The Frenchman has grown disillusioned with his lack of opportunities at the Amsterdam ArenA this term and is keen to move on to secure regular action.
Additionally, the 26-year-old still harbours ambitions of making his country's World Cup squad and is keen to press his claims with first-team action.
Sevilla have seen off the challenge of Sochaux and Auxerre to land the left-sided stopper, and agent Bruno Satin claims the transfer should be rubber-stamped on Tuesday.
"The papers have announced that Julien has signed but it is not true," Satin told skysports.com.
"The deal will certainly be concluded tomorrow. We are studying the figures this afternoon (Monday), and then I will go to Seville tomorrow with the player.
"Then we hope to sign a contract with the Primera club."
