thumbnail Hello,

The Andalucians are pushing hard to make sure they land the Ivory Coast midfielder today…

Sevilla’s two main representatives, Monchi and Jose Maria Cruz had flown in to London yesterday afternoon to conduct critical talks with Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer of Didier Zokora.

Despite a month of on-again, off-again negotiations, AS believe that the Andaluz outfit are now ready to close the deal as they want to secure the player’s signature at all cost today.

Spurs were holding firm on their €13 million price tag but it is speculated that they are now willing to accept a €9 million bid from their Spanish counterparts after being put under pressure by the player himself, who periodically dropped in on yesterday’s meeting which continued throughout the entire evening.

Sevilla are hoping to make an official announcement around noon that they have completed the transfer, bring the player back to Andalucia in the evening and begin pre-season training with the rest of the squad tomorrow.

Zokora had already agreed to sign a four-year contract with Los Nervionense.
