Lopetegui is now in charge of Sevilla and has his eyes on the right-back again going into the summer market.
Madrid loaned Odriozola to Bayern Munich last season but it proved to be an unsuccessful spell. The Bundesliga giants will not be exercising their option to buy 24-year-old Odriozola.
Dani Carvajal is still the undisputed number one right-back at Madrid, and the club plan to bring back Achraf Hakimi from his sensational Borussia Dortmund loan. Nacho is also capable of playing on the right side for Los Blancos.
Madrid’s squad depth leaves them with the decision of whether to cash in on Odriozola or try to re-integrate.
According to Marca, Sevilla are ‘positioned’ to move for Odriozola if given encouragement.
A temporary move is possible, with many loans expected in Spain and across Europe this summer.
Odriozola would provide stern competition for Jesús Navas at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
The Andalusians have already profited from a Real Madrid loan, with left-back Sergio Reguilón having a good 2019-20 season.
