According to RMC, Sevilla sporting director Monchi has already had numerous meetings with and the club will soon make the Ligue 1 side an offer. Meanwhile, Juventus are also interested in the Monaco centre-back, who made 24 Ligue 1 appearances for the side in an injury-hit season.
His return from injury did, however, coincide with Monaco rediscovering their form, and he was a pivotal element in the side that secured a place on the Ligue 1 podium.
As well as Sevilla and Juventus, Badiashile, the French U21 international has been linked to Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle by L’Équipe. The latter reportedly made an unsuccessful €40m bid in January.
Having sold Aurélien Tchouaméni to Real Madrid for a reported €100m, Monaco won’t necessarily be under any pressure to sell a key element of their back line.
