Negredo talks up Premier League move

Alvaro Negredo Sevilla strikerSevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is ready for a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur as likely suitors for the Spaniard.

The stiker has been linked with a move to England on numerous occasions leading up to the January transfer window, and his recent comments have only reaffirmed his likelihood of gracing the pitches of the Premier League.

Reports have also suggested that Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido visited England last week, linking the player with a number of teams including Spurs, Arsenal, Sunderland and Newcastle, according to Sky Sports.

“The Premier League is a great competition, I really like it and I think my style of football would be well suited to it,” said Negredo.

“There comes a time when a cycle comes to an end and I don’t know whether my time will be sooner or later. I haven’t thought about it a lot but I wouldn’t mind playing abroad.”

Negredo’s desire to play in England has been strengthened following conversations with Fernando Torres and Juan Mata about English football.

“I’ve spoken to the guys playing in England, mainly when we were together at Euro 2012,” said the player.

“I spoke to Mata and Torres and they say it is easier to go out and about in England as there is not as much scrutiny as in Spain. I like that.”
