With transfer guru Monchi back, Sevilla have already made 10 signings this summer and look good to compete for the silverwares.

The summer transfer window has been a very busy one at Ramon Sanchez- Pizjuan. Sevilla bringing their director of football back from A.S Roma may turn out to be a blessing for them. Monchi rejected a move to Arsenal to come back to his home team Sevilla.

Monchi has already signed 10 players this window, spending €123 million for players having a total market value of more than €160 million. It seems like he’s made deals at much bargain from a highly inflated transfer market.

The new summer signings include:

20 year old, Bordeaux center back Jules Kounde for a €25 million fee.

26 year old centre back Diego Carlos from F.C Nantes for €15 million.

27 year old, centre forward Munas Dabbur from RB Salzburg for €15 million.

24 year old, left winger Lucas Ocampos from Olympique Marseille for €15 million.

24 year old, central midfielder Joan Jordan from SD Eibar for €14 million.

28 year old, centre forward Luuk De Jong from PSV Eindhoven for €12.5 million.

24 year old, centre midfielder Oliver Torres from F.C Porto for €12 million.

21 year old, centre back Maximilian Wober from AFC Ajax for €10.5 million.

31 year old, defensive midfielder Fernando from Galatasaray for €4.5 million.

22 year old, left back Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid C.F on loan.

A complete squad revamp will see high competition for the starting eleven. Sevilla also offloaded a few good players at decent money, including their star man Pablo Sarabia who had double figures of both goals and assists last season. PSG brought him for a fee of €18 million. Forwards Quincy Promes and Luis Muriel also left for Ajax and Atalanta respectively for €15 million each.

Sevilla finished 6th in La Liga last season, were runners up in Supercopa de Espana, exited the Copa Del Rey in the quarter finals and were knocked out from the Europa League in the Round of 16.

With great squad depth this season, and a new highly rated manager Julen Lopeteguie, Sevilla would look to challenge for all the titles ahead next season.
