The Premier League pair are both short on left-back options, making ‘Kolo’ an appealing target.

The former Lyon man can also play at centre-back and is valued at around £7m.

Sevilla’s most likely route into the Champions League next term appears to be wining the Europa League, and if they fail they may have to sell players such as Kolodziejczak.

The Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan side are set to do other business with another English side, with Iago Aspas to join them from Liverpool on a permanent basis this summer.
