Anfield side interested in Sevilla striker.
Liverpool are eyeing Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo.
The People says Sunderland want £15million-rated Sevilla striker Negredo to replace Darren Bent.
But Black Cats boss Steve Bruce knows he faces a fight to sign the 26-year-old Spain forward as Liverpool are also showing an interest.
One wonders quite where Kenny Dalglish would place Alvaro Negredo in his starting line-up, if indeed this source is correct and Liverpool are keen on the Spanish international, however the former Real Madrid man is a consistent goalscorer and may be seen as a third attacking option and a player who can keep Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll on their toes next term.
Real Madrid apparently still have a buy back option and are reportedly considering exercising that option and using the 26 year old to help lure Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero to the Bernabeu, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of Sunderland and Valencia taking a keen interest.
Negredo has notched up 65 goals over the past four seasons and is on the fringes of the national team set-up and is strongly linked to leave Sevilla this summer. Sunderland’s need may be more pressing as they appear to have struggled since the sale of Darren Bent to Aston Villa.
No doubt Liverpool will look to bring in new additions but most sources state that they are primarily looking for left sided players to fill that ‘problem’ area.
