  • Sevilla has been a consistent force within La Liga achieving plenty of European success.
  • Domestic glory has been more tricky to come by, with their only top-flight title coming way back in 1946

While not on par with the big three in Spain, Sevilla has been a consistent force within La Liga, achieving plenty of European success in recent years.

Under Unai Emery, the team won three Europa League trophies on the bounce, and they also won the trophy in 2021.

Domestic glory has been more tricky to come by, with their only top-flight title coming way back in 1946.

However, operating on a smaller scale and a smaller budget to the biggest teams in the country has meant Sevilla has been forced to be smart in the transfer market.

Buy cheap and selling big is a good way of achieving success, so what are Sevilla’s top 10 biggest sales of all time?

9. Steven Nzonzi – €26.7m (Roma, 2018)

After guiding Stoke City to a top-half finish in the Premier during the 2014/15 season, Steven Nzonzi earned himself a move to Sevilla for €8 million, with the Spanish club impressed by his form in the English top flight.

Nzonzi helped the side win the Europa League during his first year at the club, and after the close of final season he won the 2018 World Cup with France.

After being offered over three times what they paid for him in 2015, Sevilla accepted Roma’s bid of €26.7m.

8. Sergio Ramos – €27m (Real Madrid, 2005)

A club legend at Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos started his career at Sevilla after coming through the ranks in their academy system.

The Spaniard made his Sevilla debut in February 2004 and went on to win the U19 Euros with his country that summer.

Ramos was thrust into the first-team squad for the 2004-05 campaign, playing 41 times in all competitions as he cemented his reputation as one of Europe’s best young defenders.

That form caught the eye of Real Madrid who chucked €27m Sevilla’s way in order to seal a deal. Ramos won 22 trophies for Los Blancos before joining Paris Saint-Germain in 2021.

7. Diego Carlos – €31m (Aston Villa, 2022)

Sevilla doubled their money on Diego Carlos after selling him for €31m to Aston Villa in 2022.

The Brazilian had arrived from Ligue 1 side Nantes for half that amount just three years before, with Sevilla turning him into a player valued by the Premier League.

He formed an impressive partnership with Jules Kounde at the heart of the Sevilla backline and guided the team to Europa League success in 2021.

6. Kevin Gameiro – €32m (Atletico Madrid, 2016)

Signed from PSG after scoring 23 goals at the Parc des Princes club, Kevin Gameiro became the main man at Sevilla, with his form catching the eyes of Europe’s big boys.

The Frenchman netted 67 goals during his stint at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium, earning himself a huge move to Atletico Madrid.

His time under Diego Simeone didn’t quite go as swimmingly, scoring 27 goals and leaving after two years. He joined Strasbourg for free in 2021 after a spell at Valencia.

5. Carlos Bacca – €33.3m (AC Milan, 2015)

Another of Sevilla’s stellar strikers, Carlos Bacca was poached from Club Brugge after the Belgian side had discovered him playing in his native Colombia.

49 goals in 108 games caught the attention of AC Milan, who were struggling in Serie A at the time.

Bacca was sold back to La Liga for €7m just three years later.

4. Dani Alves – €35.5m (Barcelona, 2008)

One of Barcelona’s greatest ever players, Dani Alves joined the Camp Nou side from Sevilla in 2008. The Brazilian was spotted playing for his boyhood club EC Bahia and after a loan spell to Sevilla, the club parted with just €550,000 to sign him in 2003.

Five years of impressive performances later and he was sold for over 60x what Sevilla spent on him as a youngster. In total, he played over 200 times for Sevilla before becoming a club legend at Barcelona.

The full-back joined Mexican side Pumas on a free transfer in 2022.

3. Vitolo – €35.6m (Atletico Madrid, 2017)

Sevilla pulled a masterstroke selling Vitolo for €35.6m to Atletico Madrid in 2017. Signed from Las Palmas after graduating from their academy, Sevilla sold Vitolo four years later after he’d made 177 appearances for the club.

During that time he only scored 28 goals and assisted a further 44, but Atleti was happy to splash the cash on the Spaniard before loaning to Las Palmas the day after he signed.

Despite making over 100 appearances for Atletico, Vitolo is still hit to hit double digits for goals or assists and will spend the 2022-23 season at Las Palmas on loan again.

2. Clement Lenglet – €35.9m (Barcelona, 2018)

Clement Lenglet spent just 18 months at Sevilla after signing from French club Nancy, but did enough to convince Barcelona to activate the €35.9m release clause included in his Sevilla contract.

One month after signing he played 90 minutes as Barcelona beat Sevilla in the 2018 Supercopa de Espana. He was sent off on his La Liga debut for the Blaugrana.

After regularly partnering with Gerard Pique during his time at Barcelona, Lenglet fell out of favor under Xavi and joined Tottenham on loan in the 2022 summer transfer window.

1. Wissam Ben Yedder – €40m (Monaco, 2019)

Wissam Ben Yedder has proven to have been an excellent signing for Monaco, despite the Ligue 1 club spending a huge €40m to sign him from Sevilla.

The forward replaced Kevin Gameiro at Sevilla, arriving in the same summer as his fellow Frenchman left the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

In Spain, Ben Yedder notched 92 goals and assists in just 137 appearances, which prompted Monaco to bring him back to France. The forward joined Sevilla from Toulouse and returned to Ligue 1 with Monaco in 2019.
