Barça favourites to sign Luciano Vietto over Sevilla

Luciano Vietto could become Barcelona's fifth summer signing in the coming hours and the Argentinian must now choose between the Catalan club and Sevilla.

The 22-year-old's decision has a lot of weight riding on it not just for him personally, but for both of the clubs who are vying to secure his signature with the Blaugrana desperate to add reinforcements to take the increasing weight of responsibility off the "MSN" trio.

Barça are better placed to sign Vietto after agreeing to buy his economic rights, while Sevilla are, for now, only contemplating whether to go through with the transfer. This has allowed the Catalan club to strike a deal early on with Atletico Madrid, who need finances themselves to sign new players of their own.

The agreement between Barça and Atletico would be closed for 22 million euros plus three million in variables.

Vietto is the only person holding up the deal from being completed, as he continues to continue his pre-season preparations with Los Rojiblancos who will travel to Australia for their summer tour beginning on July 26.
