Sevilla manager Unai Emery has said that the clubs highly rated French midfielder, Geoffrey Kondogbia could still leave the club this summer, with several clubs interested in youngster, reports.

The 20 year old had an impressive debut season for Sevilla after signing from Lens last summer and several clubs are known to be chasing the French midfielder, who has been compared with Patrick Viera.

Real Madrid, Arsenal and Manchester United are thought to be tracking Kondogbia but none so far activated his £8.7 million release.

However, Emery believes that it is possible that the midfielder could still leave Sevilla before the end of the transfer window.

“We want him to stay here but there are circumstances that could lead to an exit,” the 41-year-old told Marca.

“We will not make any movement to sell. There is no need to sell and we all know that in the club.”

Kondogbia is thought to be one of the most highly rated young midfielders in Europe and Arsenal are known to have a particular interest in the player.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is known to have a history of buying young players and turning them into world class performers and he could try and do the same with Kondogbia.
