The Spanish international stiker, Alvaro Negredo, could be on the way to Arsenal soon. There are sure to be other clubs interested, but Arsene Wenger is definitely in the market for a quality new front man, and has been told by Barcelona that Davis Villa will not be sold this January. The 27-year old striker currently plays for Seville in the Spanish Primera Liga, but it was revealed yesterday that he wants a move to the Premier league in England.
Seville are widely believed to be in need of a cash injection to keep up with their debt repayments, so the news that the club president has flown to London today, suggests that he may be in the process of negotiating the sale of his star striker. The price of Negredo is likely to be around £15 million which is pretty good for a player of his quality and his addition to the Gunners would certainly persuade more people to bet on Arsenal online with Paddy Power although Arsenal are currently around 80/1 to win in the Premier League best odds.
The news was broken by the Seville based sport website, MuchoDeporte, this morning, but the club have insisted the trip to London by Jose Maria Del Nido is purely a personal business matter. Believe that if you want. With Chelsea already having signed Demba Ba, it is thought that Arsenal are the team most likely to be the destination of Negredo, who helped Spain to Euro 2012 glory.
Negredo would be able to play in the Champions league for Arsenal if he signed, and he is in good scoring form this season, with 11 goals from 18 matches. Fast, technical and powerful, Negredo would make a great addition for the Gunners.
