La Liga giant Sevilla is seeking to sign Ponferradina’s Iranian goalkeeper Amir Abedzadeh in the January transfer window, according to local sources in Spain.

Abedzadeh, 28, the son of legendary Iranian keeper Ahmadreza Abedzadeh, has made 19 appearances for the Spanish second-tier side this season, conceding 14 goals while keeping eight clean sheets.

Spanish website Info Bierzo wrote Sevilla is willing to pay €3.5 million for the Iranian international as first-choice keeper Yassine Bounou is in Cameroon to represent Morocco at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Serbian goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic has been infected with COVID-19.

Spanish sports journalist Alfonso Fernandez wrote on Twitter that the Sevilla director of football, Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo, commonly known as Monchi, has attended Ponferradina’s training in recent days to watch Abedzadeh.

Should the deal go through, it will be a second move for the Iranian in nine months, after he joined Ponferradina from Portuguese club Maritimo in July.

Sevilla is currently second in La Liga table, trailing Real Madrid by five points with a game in hand.

Julen Lopetegui’s men failed to progress beyond the group stage of the UEFA Champions League and will face Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League playoffs in February.
