Sevilla transfer news: Kasper Dolberg has completed his loan move to the Red-Whites from Ligue 1 club OGC Nice.
Dolberg was considered the next big thing in football when he joined Ajax from Silkeborg in 2015. However, he has struggled with injuries and consistency in recent years and has failed to fully justify his talent.
He left the Dutch club to join OGC Nice in the summer window of 2019. He has played 74 league games for the French club so far, scoring 23 goals.
The Denmark international played a key role in the Eaglets’ run to the final of the Coupe de France last term, scoring one goal in four games. Dolberg also won 2019-20’s Nice Player of the Season accolade.
