Sevilla have reached an agreement with Real Madrid to sign Denis Cheryshev on loan, Goal can reveal.
The forward is seeking to leave the Bernabeu and gain more first team experience elsewhere and Unai Emery's side are now frontrunner's for the winger's signature.
Cheryshev's father, recognising the limited opportunities under Carlo Ancelotti this term, had been waiting for a convincing proposal for his son, who will now join los Rojiblancos until June 2014.
Emery is understood to be keen on the 22-year-old as an alternative to the likes of Jose Antonio Reyes, Diego Perotti and Marko Marin.
The loan does not include an option for Sevilla to purchase the young Russia international outright however, ensuring the highly-rated Castilla attacker, who signed a new four-year contract in July, will remain tied to los Blancos.
Cheryshev is yet to make a single Primera Liga appearance.
