The Spaniard makes the switch to the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have confirmed that Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo has signed for the club and that the 27-year-old will wear the No.9 shirt.
Negredo becomes City’s third new signing of the summer and the second from the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium following Jesus Navas’ arrival.
The Spanish pair, along with Fernandinho, are the new acquisitions for manager Manuel Pellegrini and Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic is also expected to sign within the next few days.
Negredo was in fine form last season, scoring 25 La Liga goals to make the Spaniard the league’s fourth top-scorer – behind Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao.
The Madrid-born forward came through the youth academy at Rayo Vallecano before making a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2005.
However, the Spain international never played a game for Los Blancos and a loan spell with Almeria was followed by a £13.2m move to Sevilla in 2009.
In four years in Seville, Negredo has scored 85 goals in 180 appearances as well as providing 28 assists.
The striker has also earned 14 caps for Spain since making his international debut in 2009, replacing Fernando Torres as a second half substitute.
Negredo scored his first goal for the national team in a 5-2 victory over Bosnia a few days later and has since gone onto net six times for the country.
The Spaniard will join Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko as first team strikers at Eastlands, with the expected arrival of Jovetic completing a four-man attack.
