Transfer News: Alvaro Negredo gives consent to Atletico Madrid Move

Sevilla striker and Spanish international Alvaro Negredo has given the all clear to his agent for a negotiation towards a move to Atletico de Madrid who finished this season's La Liga in third place.

Despite being linked to a move to the likes of West Ham, Tottenham, Everton in the Premier League and also Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund, the 27 year old could instead move within Spain to Atleti.

Negredo has been viewed to being a replacement for either Radamel Falcao, Diego Costa or Adrian who could all leave if the right offer appears.

Negredo has scored 26 goals in all competitions for Sevilla this season with 5 further assists and could be sold for 18 million euros although Sevilla want 25 million.
