With Manchester City seemingly signing every forward on the planet, certain current players were always going to be deemed not good enough to stay for next season. City have already announced Jesús Navas would be leaving this summer and Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho is being linked with moves to Leicester City and West Ham United.

Up next it seems to be Nolito who will be leaving. The Spaniard started last season well but quickly fell out of favor and barely featured toward the end of the season. According to a report from Cadena COPE Nolito seems to have chosen Sevilla as his next club, and the clubs are already talking about a deal.

COPE is reporting an outright sale or loan with option to buy next summer are the most likely deals to be struck.

Sevilla's president spoke about Nolito this week and looks confident that the player will be signed:

After moving to the Etihad last summer for what seemed like a bargain at £13.8 million, Nolito found the net just six times in 30 appearances in all competitions.
