Sevilla boss Unai Emery confirms interest in striking trio

Unai Emery eyes Javier Hernandez, Fernando Llorente and Ciro Immobile to replace Carlos Bacca at Sevilla.

Sevilla head coach Unai Emery has identified three strikers that could bolster his squad this summer.

Emery has conceded that he will be in the market for a new goalscorer following the recent departure of Colombia international Carlos Bacca to AC Milan.

He confirmed that Manchester United frontman Javier Hernandez has been included on the shortlist, as have Juventus's Fernando Llorente and Ciro Immobile of Borussia Dortmund.

"Now we have to find another Bacca, with a different name but with similar characteristics. It's not easy, but there are opportunities," Emery told Corriere dello Sport.

"There is Chicharito, Immobile and other players that we are evaluating, like Llorente, but it is not easy to get to him. What's important is the desire, not the age."

It is also believed that Sevilla are close to completing the signing of Stoke City midfielder Steven N'Zonzi.
