Luuk de Jong may be set to slip down the pecking order at Sevilla with the club determined to bring in a new striker this month.

The Dutch international joined Sevilla from PSV in the summer but has so far only netted two goals in 16 La Liga matches.

De Jong’s competitors Javier Hernandez and Munas Dabbur have also struggled in front of goal this season and the club are now set to enter the transfer market.

According to several reports in Spain and Portugal, Sevilla wants to sign Benfica forward Raúl De Tomás. The 25-year-old is keen on a return to Spain after struggling in Portugal since his move from Real Madrid in the summer.

De Jong will be keen to maintain his place up front with the European Championship coming this summer. With Memphis Depay and Donyell Malen set to miss out, De Jong will be hoping to lead the line for Oranje, but will need to find his form.
