Everton chasing Negredo

January 31, 2013

negredoEverton are understood to be looking at potentially signing Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo.

After seeing a deal for Twente midfielder Leroy Fer collapse yesterday afternoon, David Moyes quickly turned his attentions to other targets, with Negredo though to be top of his list.

Sevilla are said to value their prized asset at £13m, but financial trouble at the club may force them to sell him for a lower price, one which Moyes is hoping to take full advantage of.

Negredo has scored 54 goals in 122 appearances for the La Liga side since joining them in 2009 from Almeria, and the 27 year old has also bagged 6 international goals in 12 appearances for the Spanish national team.
