According to reports in Spain, new Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli has urged the club to bring Lucas Ocampos back from Ajax.

Sampaoli has returned for another spell with Sevilla and has reportedly submitted a shortlist of three players to the club’s board.

According to Fichajes, striker Gabriel Barbosa of Flamingo and Argentine defender Lucas Martínez Quarta are two of the targets. The other is surprisingly Lucas Ocampos.

The winger joined Ajax on loan in the summer and the Amsterdam club have the option to make it permanent. The 28-year-old is yet to make an impression at Ajax and it is unknown how eager the club would be to talk with Sevilla about a deal.
