Kone: Signs on for Sevilla
Sevilla have bolstered their ranks with the capture of Arouna Kone on a five-year deal.
The Ivory Coast international completed his switch from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven for a fee believed to be in the region of 12 million euros [£8.1 million].
With very little time left before the transfer window slams shut, PSV have stated that they are keen to find a replacement for the 23-year-old striker.
A clause in Kone's Sevilla contract ensures that if a bid of 30 million euros is received, he will be granted permission to speak to interested parties.
Kone bagged 21 goals for PSV in his two-season stay at the Philips Stadion and the capture goes someway to increasing Sevilla's fire-power, as they look to compete on both the domestic and European stage.
