The striker has scored 25 goals this season and Sevilla are thought to ready to let the Spaniard go if a club activates his £20 million release clause.

Everton were thought to be interested in Negredo during the January transfer window but declined to play £20 million for the striker while West Ham have also been interested in adding Negredo to their striking options.

The 27 year olds agent has come out and said that despite interest from clubs in the Premier League, a move to Rafa Benitez Napoli might be the strikers preferred option due to Italian clubs qualification into next season’s Champions League.

“Napoli is a possibility given that [Rafa] Benitez likes the player and the team will play in next season’s Champions League, a competition that Negredo would like to take part in”, said the players agent Jaunma Lopez.

Sevilla could lose two of their most important players this summer with Negredo possibly leaving and winger Jesus Navas set to move to Premier League runners-up Manchester City.
