Unai Emery to leave Sevilla ahead of club talks with Jorge Sampaoli

Sevilla have announced that Unai Emery is to leave the club as coach and they will hold talks with former Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli about becoming his replacement.

Emery has been linked with both the managerial positions at Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League side Everton.

The Spanish coach took over at Sevilla in 2013 and has led the team to three successive Europa League triumphs, most recently beating Liverpool in May's final.

Emery led Sevilla to seventh place in La Liga in the 2015-16 season.

Meanwhile, the club confirmed in a statement that Sampaoli, who parted company with Chile in January, is set to hold talks with the Spanish side on Monday.

Sampaoli said in February his future lies in Europe, although in March he distanced himself from the Chelsea job.
