Sevilla can offer Paulo Henrique Ganso to get Lucas Pratto from Atlético Mineiro
Spanish club Sevilla will try to sign an attacker in the upcoming transfer window in January 2017.
The winter transfer market in European football is approaching and Sevilla are eyeing reinforcements. According to Spanish newspaper AS, one of the objectives of the leaders is to sign an attacker, and the most popular name is Argentinean Lucas Pratto, from Atlético Mineiro. The publication goes on to say that, for the deal to happen, the Spanish club would be willing to involve attacking midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso, who did not perform as expected, after arriving from São Paulo. The newspaper wrote that the signing of Ganso in the summer transfer window was realized with an expectation that he would make a difference with the attackers because of his vision of game and ability to provide assists. However, the Brazilian has not yet adapted to the pace of play in Spanish football. The idea of signing Lucas Pratto comes from the need to strengthen the offensive sector of Sevilla. Coach Jorge Sampaoli would have made it clear that it will be necessary to invest in January to reinforce the team.
Recently, in an interview, Pratto denied any kind of proposal or contact from European clubs for his signature at the next window and guaranteed that he's focused only on the Copa do Brasil final: "I don't give a damn about speculation. I don't know anything about this, I knew because everyone told me about Sevilla's interest, but nobody called me. I cannot confirm anything. If you see something in the newspaper that is good, it is because you are doing things well. It's always good that people recognize the work. I don't know if it's true or a lie, I'm just thinking about the final."
