France full-back Corchia set for Sevilla

French international right-back Sebastien Corchia is set to join Spanish side Sevilla from Lille, sources close to the deal told AFP on Wednesday.

The agreement reached between the two clubs should see Sevilla pay five million euros ($5.7 million) for the 26-year-old, who will sign a four-year contract, the source said.

Lille director general Marc Ingla confirmed that Corchia was set to undergo a medical in Spain before signing his contract with Sevilla.

Corchia joined Lille from Sochaux in 2014 and has appeared in several France squads, winning his first and only cap to date in a friendly against the Ivory Coast last November.

Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga last season to qualify for the Champions League and have since named Eduardo Berizzo as coach to replace the departing Jorge Sampaoli.

Lille, who have appointed the enigmatic Argentine Marcelo Bielsa as coach, had already moved to cover his departure by signing another right-back, Kevin Malcuit from Saint-Etienne.
