£20m La Liga hitman back on Tottenham Hotspur radar

Tottenham Hotspur are once again being linked with a transfer move for striker Alvaro Negredo.

The 27-year-old forward was the subject of a £20 million deadline day bid from Spurs, according to the Metro, and is now back on the radar of manager Andre Villas-Boas amidst financial concerns at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

TalkSPORT claims Los Rojiblancos will have to sell some of their top players in the January transfer window in an effort to raise ‘vital funds’, and Negredo could be one of the players out of the door.

And, with Radio Sevilla intimating that Tottenham Hotspur might be able to land the player in a cut-price deal, the former Almeria star could move to White Hart Lane for a reasonable price.

“I will continue at Sevilla until the president and I decide,” Negredo is quoted as saying.

Spurs are relatively short of options in attack this season, with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor the only senior strikers currently on the books in north London.

Negredo would add strong competition in the position if he were to join Tottenham, although Villas-Boas and chairman Daniel Levy will be eager to get to the negotiation table before bringing the player to the club immediately in 2013.
