Jorge Almirón, the coach of Boca Juniors, is in the midst of planning the squad for next season. In this process, a latent concern has arisen: the possible departure of Ezequiel Fernández, who has caught the attention of Sevilla FC, a club that is looking for players with his profile to reinforce its squad.
Since the departure of Alan Varela, ‘Equi’ Fernández has assumed a crucial role in Boca’s midfield, performing very solidly as a defensive midfielder. His notable growth and outstanding performance in important matches have put various European clubs on alert.
As ‘ BocaNoticias ‘ reports, Sevilla, with its keen eye on South American talent, has shown specific interest in Ezequiel Fernández. It is rumored that the Spanish club could present an offer in January to acquire the services of the promising midfielder. This news has generated concern among Boca’s coaching staff and its most loyal followers. Boca’s leadership deserves praise for its decision to repatriate Equi Fernández after his loan to Tigres. Despite a difficult initial adaptation, the young player has proven his worth and has shone in the team, attracting the attention of several European clubs, including Brighton and Benfica.
there will be a competition
Sevilla now joins the list of suitors for Ezequiel Fernández, and his signing will not be an easy task. Boca’s leadership is aware of the difficulty in retaining him, but they hope to receive an offer that exceeds 15 million dollars, which would be a fair reflection of the value and potential of the midfielder. Clubs like Liverpool or Chelsea have also shown interest in him, although for the moment they have not taken a step forward for his services, so Sevilla has a good opportunity to sign him.
