Sevilla are launching a late push to convince Inter to sell midfielder Gary Medel, who has also been linked with Liverpool this summer.

Los Rojiblancos head coach Jorge Sampaoli has set his heart on adding Medel to his squad before the transfer window slams shut, according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato.

Sampaoli is claimed to have put the midfielder's name at the top of the shortlist of players he wants to snap up this summer – but time is running out.

However, if Inter signal they are willing to play ball over Medel then they could have opposition from Liverpool.

The Reds were strongly linked with the Chile international earlier this month, while Inter knocked back a bid for Medel.


Inter snapped up the 29-year-old from Welsh outfit Cardiff City in 2014.

Medel counts Sevilla amongst his former clubs, having turned out for the Spanish giants from 2011 until 2013, at which time he left to join Cardiff.

The midfielder has won 95 caps at international level for Chile.
