Liverpool are set to launch a summer swoop for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo, according to reports.
Goal.com Spain can exclusively reveal that the Anfield club are already looking to next season, and maintain the belief that striker Fernando Torres will express a desire to move on next summer.
The likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester United have been linked with a move for ‘El Nino’, and therefore the Reds are lining up replacements, with Negredo allegedly topping their list of targets.
The 25-year-old moved to Andalucia from Real Madrid for a fee of €15 million in the summer of 2009, but has enjoyed a difficult spell at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, and the club may be willing to let him leave should the price be right.
Negredo’s current buy-out clause is in excess of €80m, but a bid closer to the €20m mark would entice Sevilla into negotiations and allow coach Gregorio Manzano the funds to approach his own transfer targets next season. (Goal.com)
Former Real Madrid man Negredo had a decent first season at Sevilla, scoring 16 times, but has seen his side slide down the table this term and may well be looking for an exit and a move to join his countrymen Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres at Anfield may well appeal to the 25 year old.
Negredo could well make a good foil for Torres and Roy Hodgson is looking for new attacking options and the Madrid born striker is a consistent performer who may well be an ideal signing to help take the some off the weight off Liverpool’s main goal threat.
Clearly the Merseyside club may wait before making any January signings as Liverpool’s owners are still apparently unsure as to how much longer they will stick with Hodgson however as Director of Football Damien Comolli appears to be in charge of signing players perhaps they can still make a bid for the Spanish international.
