EVERTON’S hopes of signing Alvaro Negredo on deadline day have taken a setback as the player’s agent has said the Sevilla striker will not be arriving on Merseyside.
The Blues have been in talks with the Spanish international looking for a deal worth around £9m, but his representative, Juanma Lopez, has stated the move is “impossible.”
He said: “It’s impossible. Negredo is an important player for Sevilla and I am absolutely sure nothing will be done in this window.
“I know they have spoken to Everton but there is no way it will happen. Unfortunately there is no chance because Sevilla simply don’t want to lose him, and if they do they will ask for crazy money.”
It’s believed that the La Liga side slapped a £13million price tag on the 27-year-old and with Everton unlikely to improve their offer and Lopez adamant that Sevilla will not negotiate, it looks like Negredo will be staying put in this transfer window.
