City finally tie up a deal for the Spaniard.
Manchester City have completed a deal for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo subject to a medical, as confirmed by the La Liga club’s website.
Negredo will join former team mate Jesus Navas at City, with the winger also signing from the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium earlier this summer.
As yet the fee is unknown although reports suggest that the figure is somewhere in the region of around £24.5m.
Negredo will bolster what was beginning to look like a weakened attack at the Etihad Stadium following the departure of Carlos Tevez to Juventus, and will join Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko as first team strikers at the club.
The 27-year-old was in fine form in Spain last season, scoring 25 goals in 36 league matches for Sevilla to take the forward’s career total to 122 strikes in 267 matches.
These performances have seen Negredo also earn 14 caps for Spain to date, netting six times along the way.
City take their total summer acquisitions to three now, as along with the Sevilla duo Fernandinho has arrived at Eastlands from Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk for £30m.
The Citizens have clearly capitalised on the Seville club’s current financial difficulties by snapping up two of their stars, as new manager Manuel Pellegrini uses his extensive knowledge of Spanish football to land new players.
It’s thought that Pellegrini wants to bring in one more forward before the transfer window closes however, with Stevan Jovetic of Fiorentina looking the most likely candidate.
