Roma put Villar on the market: Sevilla are interested in the player


Despite leaving the team’s preseason camp in Portugal and returning to the Italian capital earlier today after suffering a minor knee sprain, Gonzalo Villar has become subject to a lot of rumors in this transfer window.

According to Calciomercato.com, Roma have put the young Spaniard on the market: the club’s intentions are to keep Amadou Diawara, a player whom Mourinho likes a lot and has relied on considerably in the first half of Roma’s preseason, and pursue another midfielder.

As a result, Villar has been deemed moveable. Calciomercato.com report that Sevilla, under the leadership of Roma’s former sporting director Ramon Monchi are interested in bringing the 23-year-old back to Spain.

Moreover, today’s friendly against Sevilla was reportedly an opportunity for both parties to open preliminary talks regarding an eventual deal.

After purchasing Villar from Elche in January 2020 for €5 million, Roma now value the Spaniard at around €20 million.
