Sevilla has a risky squad even if Monchi bring in Chicharito

javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez is the latest player to be linked with Sevilla as Monchi looks to add to his forward options before the market closes. But why would they need Chicharito if they've already got Munas Dabbur? The Israeli striker hasn't played a minute since his summer move from Red Bull Salzburg. He hasn't done anything wrong; he hasn't been given the chance to yet. He's being punished for a crime that he hasn't committed.

It's clear than Julen Lopetegui wants and needs another striker, one with different characteristics to Luuk de Jong. A No.9 that knows how to move around the penalty area and finish service from some of the finest full-backs in the country. A Wissam Ben Yedder, someone who's prolific inside the box. Lopetegui doesn't see Dabbur in this role so he's not included him in his plans. That leaves him with just Munir El Haddadi and Nolito if De Jong gets injured.
Monchi has strengthened key areas. He's brought in a central defender, physical midfielders and players capable of competing for 90 minutes. This Sevilla can win or lose, but they'll rarely lose having not competed with their opponent. But there still doubts over their goal threat. Ben Yedder and Pablo Sarabia are no longer around. Even if Monchi does bring in Chicharito, this is still a risky Sevilla squad. The sporting director has just 72 hours to get it right.
