Sevilla Negredo could join Benitez's Napoli

Sevilla Negredo could join Benitez's Napoli

In-demand Sevilla forward Alvaro Negredo could be leaving La Liga side for Spanish or English club, according to his agent.

The 27 year-old Spaniard has been in outstanding form this season, scoring 25 goals, including all four in Sevilla’s thrilling 4-3 win over Valencia at the final day. Sevilla are reportedly ready to let their prolific forward go, but not sooner than they receive an offer, matching his £20-million release clause.

Both Everton and West Ham have been sniffing around, but the transfer fee of £20million is unaffordable for those Premier league sides. Negredo’s agent Juanma Lopez admitted that they did receive offers from several Premier League clubs, but hinted that Rafa Benitez’s Napoli could be preferred over proposed move to England.

Negredo is reportedly keen to test him on the highest level and Napoli’s automatic qualification to the major European tournament could be crucial argument in making decision on his future. Juanma Lopez said: Alavaro has played a very important season and many clubs are coming forward for him. I think he can go either to England or Italy.

“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. The final decision is up to Seville, whoever wants Negredo has to find an agreement with them,” he added.
