The ebb and flow nature of Sevilla’s summer undertakings have been conspicuous this summer. Unlike the last window, they have been on both ends of the negotiations table, and while they have lost some of their key players, they have managed to replace them with even more dependable ones. The club’s manager, Julen Lopetegui has been very accommodative towards incoming players as well as responsive to the club’s growing need for new players.
Speaking of new players, the Spanish giants have completed the signing of Bayern Munich rising talent Tanguy Nianzou. The paperwork is already signed, sealed and dusted and all that remains to be done to make the transfer official is the passing of medicals, which has been scheduled for this week. Incidentally, the player is already in Sevilla, Spain to set the final legalities to bed and officially be unveiled as the new recruit.
While it is a joy to many Sevilla fans to sign Kounde’s replacement, Chelsea fans have been bitter and beyond consolable after missing out on both targets. Nianzou and Kounde were among Chelsea’s top targets but right now, none is acquirable nor interested in jumping ship to join them. Fans have been blabbering all over social media, lamenting how Tuchel’s hesitance to signing young players is costing the team.
His potential is constantly peaking…
Nianzou is a household name in Germany for a handful of reason but most importantly it’s his tenacity and constant rate of improvement that makes him a standout prospect. The fact that he has left Bayern is unfathomable to many fans, but a blessing in disguise for Sevilla fans. Chelsea fans will have to wait their turn in the next five years to claim the defender who is destined for greatness in the not-so-distant future.
His stats in the defensive third are not as convincing that he is an elite player probably because Bayern are often dominant on the ball but the rare occasions the team succumbs to an impromptu break, Nianzou is always the center back that is depended upon to halt them. He is not a monster when it comes to aerial duels, but anything worth dueling on the ground is a must win for him. I believe he would have been the perfect figure to slot the last vacancy in Chelsea’s defensive line up.
