Sevilla's Negredo On The Market

Alvaro Negredo has put teams across Europe on red alert, by admitting that he could leave Sevilla at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old striker is not pursuing a move, but his cash-strapped club are likely to put him on the market to generate some much needed finances.

Tottenham, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Fiorentina, Everton and West Ham have been linked to Negredo in the past, and his eye for goal, work ethic and leadership abilities would definitely be appreciated by them all.

And now Negredo has confirmed to AS that he could well be on his way out of the Sanchez Pizjuan, if the right offer is put on the table.

“It could happen that the president wants to sell or needs to sell,” Negredo said.

“If a good offer comes and in the end we are all in agreement [I will leave]. But it could be that I stay to see out my contract.”

Meanwhile, despite scoring 21 La Liga goals for his struggling team this season, Negredo was overlooked by Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque for his Confederations Cup squad.

He is obviously disappointed that he will not play in the tournament in Brazil, but accepts that there was a lot of top-quality competition for La Furia Roja’s striking berths.

“I am upset but at the same time it makes you think you must keep working and playing well to be able to get back in,” he said.

“It has not been a good year for Sevilla and in the end we have not met our objectives. In the end it is about the group, if it goes well for the group it can influence things, but well, the players who are going [to Brazil] deserve to go.

“Roberto [Soldado] is having a great season, [David] Villa always scores goals when he is with the national team and Fernando [Torres] has ended up scoring goals, important goals.

“In the end it is the coach’s decision. Villa for the national team does not play as a ‘pure’ number nine, he plays more on the wing. The only one is Fernando, but Fernando has finished the season very well. I congratulate everyone on the call-up, above all Jesus [Navas]."
