Alvaro Negredo on Manchester City transfer radar

Manchester City are being linked with a move for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo.

The Spain striker is valued in the region of £24million, according to the BBC, but the same site claims Manuel Pellegrini will hope to land the player for a reduced fee.

Negredo started his career at Rayo Vallecano, making his professional debut in early 2005 before moving to Real Madrid that summer.

During two-years at the Santiago Bernabeu, the forward failed to break into the Los Blancos first team and eventually moved to Almeria. His goals at the Juegos Mediterráneos earned him a move to Sevilla in 2009, and also played their part in his first international call-up, which came in October 2009.

His form has not dipped at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan either, with Negredo averaging just over a goal every other game in La Liga during his four-years with the club.

Manchester City clearly believe the 27-year-old can replicate that form in the Premier League, and have eyed the striker as a replacement for Carlos Tevez.

The Argentine left the Etihad Stadium for Juventus at the end of June after four-years under old boss Roberto Mancini, and new Citizens chief Pellegrini is looking to replace the 29-year-old quickly.
