Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo looks to have moved a step closer to the club’s exit door after the the moved to sign Colombian forward Carlos Bacca from Club Brugge, Sky Sports reports.

Club president Jose Maria del Nido said earlier this week that he had not received any offer from Manchester City for the 27-year-old, who has indicated he would like to leave this summer.

And he may now get his wish after Sevilla completed the signing of Bacca, who has agreed a five-year contract with Sevilla and has a 30million euros release clause in his contract.

Neither side have confirmed the fee, but it is believed to be around €7 million.

He told Club Brugge’s website: “This is truly a dream come true. When I came to Europe, it has always been my dream to play in the Primera Division.

“It would have been a huge disappointment if Club Brugge and Sevilla FC had failed to reach an agreement.

“I am already 26 years old so for me this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

“I have had an amazing spell at Club Brugge. The fans are brilliant and I will remember them for the rest of my life.

“And I’m happy to say that this transfer has not only gone well for me, but it’s also the biggest transfer in the club’s history. And I can honestly say I’m quite proud of that.”
