Man City close in on Sevilla ace

Sevilla striker Alvaro NegredoManchester City have opened talks with Sevilla for striker Alvaro Negredo, according to reports from The Metro.

The Citizens have turned to the Spaniard after growing frustrated in their pursuitof Napoli’s Edinson Cavani, who will cost in excess of £50million.

New City chief Manuel Pellegrini has made obtaining a front-man his top transfer priority following Carlos Tevez’s switch to Juventus.

The Argentine’s departure leaves City with only two recognised centre-forwards in Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero.

Negredo is said to match Pellegrini’s requirements, and the Chilean is confident that he can offer something new to the Premier League side’s attacking armoury.

Sevilla are far from keen to lose their star man, but are believed to be willing to business for around £24m, a figure that City can easily match.

The 27-year-old was in fine form for the La Liga side last term, but could not stop them from finishing in a mid-table position, missing out on European football.

Atletico Madrid are also keen, but Negredo could be open to following former team-mate Jesus Navas to the Etihad Stadium.

West Ham are also thought to be keen, but cannot offer the striker continental football, which is believed to be high on his list of requirements.
