Liverpool have been handed a major boost in their apparent chase of Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo.
The Sevilla hitman has recently appeared on the Anfield radar, with speculation surfacing that Liverpool will make a January move for the player.
Roy Hodgson's departure does not appear to have quelled the rumours, and fresh reports in Spain now claim that Los Rojiblancos will accept a sizable offer from Liverpool for the player, should they make one.
TalkSPORT goes on to state that the Spanish report claims an offer in the region of €20 million would be enough to land the player, and Sevilla would 'not block' a big-money move for the player who has international caps for his country.
An attacking foil for Fernando Torres is thought to be the priority for new boss Kenny Dalglish, and 'El Nino' could play a crucial role in trying to persuade his compatriot to make the switch to Liverpool.
Negredo is well aware of interest in his services, but the La Liga forward refused to be drawn on the situation when speaking recently.
"I read something, but my representative has said there is nothing happening at the moment. I am comfortable with the situation and will just focus on playing for Sevilla," he said.
Damien Comolli, Director of Football strategy at Anfield, has reportedly given his approval with regards to a move for the 25-year-old, clearing the way for 'King Kenny' to spend some of NESV's pledged Liverpool cash on the player.
