Sevilla want to bring Krychowiak back for second spellJune 7, 2018
After a disastrous season with relegated West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League, Grzegorz Krychowiak is looking for a new club. With Paris Saint-Germain seemingly not interested in keeping the 28 year old at the club, Sevilla want to bring the midfielder back to Andalusia according to Estadio Deportivo.
After leaving Sevilla for the Paris-based club in 2016 for €27.5 million, Krychowiak was expected to be the rock in their midfield which would support them in finally winning the Champions League. The Polish international found it difficult to dislodge the likes of Thiago Motta and Marco Veratti from midfield however. Even after a bright start to his time in France, the 28 year old only managed 11 appearances in Ligue 1 in his solitary season there.
It was hoped he could revive his career at West Brom and put in performances similar to what he displayed during his time with Sevilla. This didn’t turn out to be the case however, as West Brom nosedived out of the Premier League with a mild resurgence toward the end of the season. According to WhoScored.com, Krychowiak was West Brom’s ninth best player this past season with a mediocre score of 6.62. A fee in the region of €10 to 15 million is believed to be the asking price by PSG who want to reduce their wage bill.
Taking all of this into account, new Sevilla Director of Football Joaquin Caparros is still in favour of striking a deal with PSG. He is confident that Krychowiak can rediscover his best form at the club where he spent two season between 2014 and 2016. During that time, he lead Sevilla to two Europa League triumphs also.
With Guido Pizarro seemingly on his way out of Sevilla to former club Tigres and Roque Mesa already signed on a permanent deal, there is one space available in Sevilla’s midfield for the Pole. The future of Steven N’Zonzi appears to be in doubt at present also with Unai Emery and Arsenal eager to sign the Frenchman. This could fuel the need to add someone of Krychowiak’s ilk back into the Sevilla squad for the coming season after finishing below rivals Real Betis this year.
