Corchia in Spain ahead of medical

Lille full-back Sebastien Corchia has arrived in Seville ahead of completing his transfer to Sevilla, it has been confirmed.

Los Rojiblancos are hopeful all relevant forms can be completed in time for the 26-year-old to join the first-team squad for their pre-season tour of Japan, the club confirmed on their website.

The report follows on from news that Turkish side Galatasaray have lodged a deal for the Andalucians full-back Mariano, and the French defender’s arrival could be a direct replacement.

Corchia played all 38 of Lille’s league outings last year, and has been capped by France.
