Sevilla start the summer by splashing the cash

The Monchi era is over at Sevilla and the Andalusian club is currently navigating their first transfer window in 17 years without the former sporting director.

As they do so, they have been spending big and 43 million euros has been shelled out on their first four arrivals of the summer.

Luis Muriel’s fee makes up a major chunk of that total, as he is Los Rojiblancos’ record signing, having cost 20 million euros from Sampdoria, surpassing the 15m euros of previous record arrival Franco Vazquez.

In addition to the Colombian striker, Sevilla have brought in Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Jordan Amavi for fees of 8m, 8m and 7m euros respectively.

In the case of Amavi, his fee could rise to 9m euros in add-ons, assuming certain targets are met. With the certain sale of Vitolo and the probable one of Steven N’Zonzi, Sevilla are set to bring in much more cash in the coming weeks and will have an even larger budget to spend.

By deadline day, they could have set a few more spending-related records.
