Sevilla and Villareal are not backing out of a move to sign Almeria and Super Eagles striker, Sadiq Umar, who was instrumental to the Andalusian club to return to the Spanish top-tier.

Sadiq has been on the radar of Sevilla with Villareal also in the loop but the asking price of Almeria for the 25-year-old forward, who netted 18 times in 36 appearances in the Spanish Segunda division, has posed a hitch.

Reportedly, Almeria need nothing below €30m to allow the striker that moved in on October 5, 2020 to Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos for €9m from FK Partizan Belgrade. The Trumpet Gathered

A forthright ago, Football Espana reported that due to the amount Almeria need for the Nigerian forward, Sevilla would only be able to acquire him should they sell 25-year-old Moroccan forward Youssef En-Nyesri.

Sadiq according to the above report, is interested in the move that would see him reunite with Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo, commonly known as Monchi and currently the director of football of Sevilla FC, who both were together in Roma.

The Nigerian international with seven caps joined Almeria in 2020 and was key to their promotion from Segunda to Primera in 2021/22 with stats that have made him the exact kind of hidden gem Sevilla pride themselves on finding.
