Sevilla are reportedly anxious at the possibility of losing Grzegorz Krychowiak to Arsenal in the remaining weeks of the transfer window, with a €30million release clause situated in the Polish international’s contract, local paper Estadio Deportivo reports.
After months of tentative links to the destructive midfielder, The Telegraph reported that we’re finally weighing up a bid to bring Krychowiak to the Emirates Stadium.
According to Estadio Deportivo, Sevilla live in ‘fear’ that Arsene Wenger will trigger the buyout clause during the final weeks of the window, leaving them little time to find a replacement.
The Spanish publication also states that it’s a well-known fact that Wenger is looking for another holding midfielder in order to provide competition for the likes of Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta.

Krychowiak ticks all the boxes in terms of his physical attributes, but the absence of a holding midfielder who’s comfortable in possession and capable of building the game from deep is obvious.

Coquelin’s passing was wayward against West Ham and without the calming influence of Santi Cazorla deployed next to him, our fluid passing game suffers.
It is therefore hard to see Wenger adding a player who’ll only add to the predicament we’re currently experiencing.
