Former Atalanta captain Papu Gomez recently joined Sevilla in a €5 million deal with €3.5 million in addition in the form of bonuses, capping off one of the best deals in the mid-season transfer market. Elsewhere, Mesut Ozil also ended his lengthy Arsenal stay with the termination of his contract and a transfer to Fenerbahce. 

A number of MLS clubs were circling for the two attacking midfielders, with multiple clubs pursuing them throughout January. Cincinnati wanted Papu Gomez. They were seriously trying and were calling his agent. However, they could not find an agreement with the player and Gomez, more importantly, wanted to play in the Champions League still. He has also wanted to play for Sevilla for a long time. 

Hence, the move to Spain is somewhat a dream move for the Argentinian. Speaking on the American interest in the pair, Fabrizio Romano and Francesco Porzio said on the Here We Go podcast that Ozil to DC United was also an option, but the player preferred a move to Fenerbahce.

However, with all that said, a move could still go through in later years, with North America being a favoured destination for the more experienced players in Europe.
