Alvaro Negredo

Tottenham’s efforts to rejuvenate their attacking line-up may steer them towards Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo in the Summer according to The Express.

They say that the North London outfit are assessing their attacking options and have considered offloading Emmanuel Adebayor, and that their options remain limited. Jermain Defoe has only just returned to fitness from injury, and Spurs have been looking to bring in Leandro Damiao,as was well publicised during the January window, but he now “appears to be off limits.”

The Express state that Spurs want an out and out striker to boost their options, and to strengthen their firepower, and reports in Spain suggest that Sevilla are now willing to listen to offers for Negredo.

Reports in The Independent last week claimed Spurs were looking at players like Damiao, a long term target. The Brazilian international has been the subject of bids from Spurs in the past but the latest article from The Express indicates he may be out of Spurs’ range currently.

However Negredo fits the mould perfectly: the Spanish international has 13 goals this season and even managed a free kick against Celta Vigo at the weekend.

The Express also feel that Sevilla are willing to talk to clubs over the sale of Negredo and are looking for offers in the region of £15.5 million, way inside Tottenham’s price bracket.

If Adebayor leaves, Defoe will be the only out and out striker left at White Hart Lane so a move for Negredo could be likely. A move could become even more likely if reports of a big money move for Gareth Bale away from the club are on the mark.
