Report: West Ham and West Brom-linked Vicente Iborra admits agent has been contacted

Sevilla midfielder Vicente Iborra has been linked with Premier League trio West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Southampton.

According to Spanish publication ABC, Vicente Iborra is a target for Premier League trio West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Southampton as the player admitted to the interest in his signature.

The 27-year-old defensive midfielder, who has played a key role in both of Sevilla’s Europa League wins, told ABC that clubs have been in contact with his agent. However, also added, that he was happy at Sevilla and hadn’t given a move away a second thought.

‘’Yes they have had contact, that’s right,’’ Iborra told ABC. ‘’But for me there is no other plan than to play for Seville.

‘’I believe that I am in a big team, not only in Spain but in Europe, as we have shown lately. We will play in the Champions League next season, which is something that is very important to me. Also, my family is very happy.’’

If West Brom or West Ham were to sign Iborra, how big of a coup would it be?

The midfield stopper is a giant of a man, who can be compared to Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic in many ways due to the way he plays.

Last season, the midfielder was as influential as ever and helped Seville, not only a Europa League trophy, but also an impressive fifth place finish in La Liga.

He, like Matic, isn’t limited to playing a holding midfield role either. He has the ability to play in a more advanced role as proven by his 11 starts in La Liga matches in an attacking midfield position, according to Whoscored.

He would be a huge coup for both clubs as his physical attributes, along with his ability, would make him a perfect fit for the Premier League.
