Negredo move to Everton 'impossible'

Alvaro Negredo’s agent has declared it “impossible” that the Sevilla striker will join Everton on transfer deadline day.

Manager David Moyes has been considering a move for the Spain international after a deal to sign FC Twente midfielder Leroy Fer collapsed on Wednesday.

Everton are not prepared to pay the £13 million asking price for the 27-year-old, although they would be interested if the fee were to drop to around £9 million.
Negredo’s representative Juanma Lopez, though, insists there is no chance of that happening.

“It’s impossible,” Lopez said, according to the Liverpool Echo. “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.”

Negredo was instead expected to feature for Sevilla in their Copa del Rey semi-final first leg match against Atletico Madrid on Thursday night.

Lopez added: “They are playing an important game and they want to do a lot in that competition. Negredo is important for that.”

Everton’s bid to sign Fer, 23, broke down after a medical showed up a knee problem.

The club were still prepared to go through with the £8.6 million signing of the Holland international, but pulled out on Wednesday after Twente officials refused to accept revised payment terms based on appearances.
