Striker Luis Fabiano is unsettled at Sevilla, according to his agent.
The 29-year-old Brazil international was strongly linked with a move to the Premier League and Tottenham during the summer, but reports claimed the north London club refused to meet the £20million asking price.
Fabiano remained with Sevilla and penned a new three-year contract last month but, after finding himself out of the starting line-up at the Spanish club during the opening weeks of the new season, is beginning to have second thoughts.
"The situation is unpleasant. Luis Fabiano does not understand and neither do we," agent Jose Fuentes told The People.
"I don't understand Sevilla's decision to give him a new deal until 2013 and then leave him on the bench.
"He is Brazil's number nine and has scored 95 goals for Sevilla, and that merits respect.
"If it doesn't change then we are obliged to seek a move."
