Negredo’s Premier League dream alerts Spurs


Tottenham Hotspur have been put on alert after Javier Negredo admitted that he would love to play in the Premier League.

The Sevilla striker was the subject of intense Spurs interest in January 2011 when Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was keen to bring in a Spanish-based striker but missed out.

The La Liga outfit value Negredo at £18million, but may have to settle for less due to their current financial problems which will also attract the interest of Arsenal and Chelsea who are keen to bring the player to London.

There’s no doubt that we need to bring in another forward to bolster AVB’s attacking options and Negredo could be the perfect foil.

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

“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.”

“I’ve spoken to the guys playing in England, mainly when we were together at Euro 2012 because we had a lot of free time,” Negredo said. “I spoke to Mata and Torres and I know they really enjoy it.

“They have a different way of experiencing football over there compared with Spain. The players say it is easier to go out and about there. Here, it is quite difficult to leave the house but they say there is not as much scrutiny in England, and I like that.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It would be nice just to sign a prolific striker! At the moment it doesn’t look like we will and we will end up without champions league football!

  2. To get the right man is key but to get someone in the Jan window considering Ade / ACN is essential!!. If we have hopes to continue our excellent run of form we need backup / partner to Defoe, Dempsey and Ade (when he returns).

  3. This guy would be a top signing but it comes down to Levy really we know he is a shrewd dealer and wont be held to ransom by anyone so the price will have to be right. A lot of articles are saying the gooners and chelski are both in for him too if im honest i dont see that being the case arse have plenty of strikers and if they want to keep Theo i think they would think twice Chelski may look but they just got Ba and have Lukaka out on loan so they too wont be looking to strengthen up front were as Spurs NEED more fire power with Ade going to the ACN we will be proper short so come on Levy get this guy £15 million is a good price for a top striker COYS
