La Liga side Sevilla are now interested in Leeds United player Crysencio Summerville, who has been linked with a move to Everton this summer.

Summerville, once called a ‘special player’ by Leeds United coach Michael Skubala, has attracted the attention of a number of clubs.

The 21-year-old attacker is likely to be part of an Elland Road exodus this summer as the Yorkshire club look to rebuild following relegation from the Premier League.

Everton are a side clearly eager to exploit the situation, with reported interest in Tyler Adams, Willy Gnonto and Crysencio Summerville.

However, as per reports in TEAMtalk, the Toffees face competition for Summerville’s signature, with UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla interested in signing the Dutch star.

Sevilla’s Director of Football Victor Orta is planning a raid on his former club, having previously held the same post at Leeds United.

Orta was responsible for securing Summerville’s signature when he was employed by Leeds, recruiting the young player in a 2020 deal for an undisclosed fee from Feyenoord.

The 21-year-old could well reunite with Orta this summer should he make the switch for Spain, though what kind of fee Leeds would want for the player remains unclear.

Everton must invest wisely this summer, particularly with regards to their attacking players and cannot afford a repeat of transfer mistakes of years gone by.

The Blues scored a meagre 34 Premier League goals last season, contributing enormously to the club’s precarious position, avoiding relegation on the last day of the season.

Summerville scored five goals in 33 games in all competitions for Leeds last season, contributing six assists and at just 21-years-old, the Dutchman looks to be a real prospect.
