Seydou Keita is on the verge of completing a shock move from Sevilla to Barcelona. The 27 year old looks set to be the first signing of Pep Guardiola's reign, and will shock many as Daniel Alves was rumoured to be the primary target from the Sevillista.

It seems that Barcelona are set to pay an £11 million fee to land the midfielder - the cost of his buyout clause in his contract.

The Mali international midfielder only joined from Lens last summer, but has had an impressive first year in the Spanish top flight.

Keita is understood to have already undertaken - and passed - a medical on Friday afternoon.
