Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is looking to leave the La Liga outfit this summer in the pursuit of Champions League football, according to club president Jose Maria del Nido. 

Del Nido confirmed that the club will not be under any pressure to sell any of their club stars, following the departure of Jesus Navas to Manchester City earlier this month. 

Sevilla have also seen striker Luis Alberto make the move to Liverpool and defender Antonio Luna move to Aston Villa. 

But Manchester United, Arsenal and Napoli transfer target Negredo seems intent on leaving the Andalusian based club this summer, following the clubs failure to gain a place in the Champions League. 

Sevilla failed to even qualify for the Europa league, after a disappointing ninth place finish in La Liga last season. 

Sevilla have already rejected an offer for Negredo from Premier League outfit West Ham, who offered a fee in the region of £14.5m. But the £15m signing of Andy Carroll from Liverpool means that the Hammers are unlikely to return for a second offer. 

And despite Del Nido's comments that the club are not looking to sell their key players, they look set to lose Negredo who is attracting an array of suitors following good form this season for Sevilla. This form also resulted in a call-up to the Spanish national team. 

Del Nido has confirmed that Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Negredo following the departure of Radamel Falcao to AS Monaco. He also admitted that there is another club outside of Spain that are seriously interested in a move for the striker. 

"He has said he wants to develop and that he wants to play in the Champions League. One of the teams is Atletico Madrid and the other is outside of Spain," Del Nido told Sevilla's television channel.
