It’s been a long while since Spurs fans could be relatively certain that the club would sign a striker in the transfer window but surely the Chairman will be digging deep this summer. A host of names have been linked in recent weeks and one of those, Alvaro Negredo, has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League.
“I’ve always said it and I’ve never tried to keep it hidden,” Negredo told a Spanish radio station.
“The Premier League is a league that I like. I don’t know if it’s now, maybe a bit later, or tomorrow but I will play there.
“The president received an offer in January but he didn’t look at it. They never said anything directly to me and it wasn’t time to leave. I don’t know what will happen in the future. It depends on what the club wants and what it needs.”
Despite what it currently says on the player’s Wikipedia page, Negredo doesn’t play for Arsenal. He’s actually been at Sevilla since 2009 and has scored a healthy 74 goals in 168 games during that time.
The striker’s comments don’t exactly constitute a ‘come and get me plea’ as has been suggested in some reports but there is a clear chance of availability here. Would Alvaro Negredo be a good fit at White Hart Lane?
