SEVILLA FC AGREE DEAL FOR NEMANJA GUDELJ
The Serbian began his career in Holland, where after taking his first steps in the youth ranks of NAC Breda went on to play in the Eredivisie with the first team. In the 13/14 season, he signed for AZ Alkmaar, picking up most of his senior appearances to date and even reaching the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League. In a total of 87 games, Gudelj contributed an impressive 19 goals and eleven assists.
His development drew the attention of Ajax, where he signed in the 15/16 campaign, eventually making over 60 senior appearances - including in Champions League fixtures. At Ajax, Gudelj scored seven goals and contributed ten assists.
In 2017, the midfielder would make the move to China, where he has played for Tianjin TEDA and Guangzhou ET. Last season, Gudelj completed a loan move back to Europe - competing with Sporting Lisbon. In Lisbon, the Serb has won two titles: Portugal's domestic Cup and Portugal's league title.
