Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo isn’t a very familiar football name, but Monchi is. Sevilla’s transfer policy mastermind has one more target on his mind.
The man behind all Sevilla’s delightful Europa League winning teams now wants another goalkeeper. Javi Diaz and Yassine Bounou didn’t challenge Tomaš Vaclik in a proper way, and Monchi wants a fresh pair of hands in his goal.
Sevilla wants to get another Serbian player after Nemanja Gudelj, and now that is Predrag Rajković. Serbia’s national team goalkeeper is impressive since he arrived in Ligue 1 to play for Reims.
“As” writes that 24-year-old goalkeeper is on Monchi’s radar since his days in Maccabi Tel Aviv. He played for Reims 27 times this season and kept 12 clean sheets. In an only match that he didn’t play, Reims conceded more than twice.
Rajković was Red Star’s first-choice goalkeeper at just 19-years-old, and after two seasons he departed for Maccabi Tel Aviv. He arrived in Reims at the start of this season in a deal worth €3 million.
Now his projected value on Transfermarket is €5.5 million, but Sevilla will have to pay more, because he has a contract until June 2023. with the French outfit.
Rajković played 13 times for the Serbian national team, and in recent games, he pushed Marko Dmitrović out of the starting spot. He was The Best Young Athlete of Serbia in 2013, and he won UEFA U19 Euro and FIFA U20 World Cup with the national team. He was awarded Golden Glove in 2015. FIFA U20 World Cup.
