RIO DE JANEIRO, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Highly rated Corinthians defender Murillo Santos could join Sevilla in the European summer transfer window, according to media reports in Brazil.

The Europa League champions are prepared to pay 15 million euros for the 20-year-old Brazilian's signature, having had an initial offer rejected, Gazeta Esportiva said on Thursday.

It added that clubs in at least three other European countries were also pursuing the center-back.

Murillo, who is contracted to Corinthians until December 2025, has become a regular starter since the appointment of Vanderlei Luxemburgo as manager last month.

Sevilla had three Brazilians in their first-team squad in the 2022-23 season: Defender Alex Telles, midfielder Fernando and defender Marcao.
