Tottenham face £12m battle with Milan for Spanish hitman

AC Milan and Rubin Kazan are set to battle Tottenham for the signature of Sevilla hit man Alvaro Negredo in January talkSPORT understands.

The Spaniard has had storming start to the season at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán scoring three goals in five games with his form alerting Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri who is in the market for a new striker.

According to reports coming from Italy the Rossoneri are prepared to submit a £12 million bid for the 26-year-old when the transfer window reopens in January.

That could thwart Spurs boss Harry Redknapp’s plans to sign the in-form frontman after failing to secure his services in the summer eventually loaning Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City.

Redknapp is still keen to bolster his frontline with Adebayor unlikely to remain at White Hart Lane beyond the length of his temporary deal and will move for the former Real Madrid man in the summer.

Sevilla aren’t keen on selling Negredo during the current campaign which will give Spurs hope of signing him at the end of the season and thwart Milan’s plans to capture him in the new year.
