Sevilla ponder cash plus Javi Varas for Levante keeper Keylor Navas
Keylor Navas has positioned himself as one of the most consistently performing goalkeepers in La Liga with Levante, but with his contract set to expire in 2015, they may be tempted to cash in at the end of the season, with Sevilla seemingly keen to offer them an interesting proposal.
The Costa Rican international has been one of the star performers at Levante for some time now and with just one more season to run on his current contract, after this season draws to a close, with the number of bigger clubs casting an eye over their goalkeeper, they may have to sell.
With a release clause of €10 million, all but the biggest of clubs around Europe would be put off by such a price tag, however, according to news portal Andalucía Informacion, Sevilla are weighing up their options for a move in the summer.
The reports suggests that Sevilla are prepared to offer Levante cash, plus their second-choice goalkeeper, Javi Varas, who also has a contract until 2015, but hasn’t apparently convinced the coaching staff at the Andaluz club.
Over the last couple of seasons, during which Varas also spent a season on-loan at Celta Vigo, along with the Galician club hoping to secure a permanent move, other clubs such as Granada, Elche and perhaps most importantly, Levante, were considering moves for him.
Thus comes the possibility that to help add leverage to a move for Keylor Navas, Sevilla will attempt to offer a lucrative enough cash offer to Levante for the services of the Costa Rican, with the option of including Javi Varas heading in the opposite direction, as part of the deal.
