Alvaro Negredo move to Everton is 'impossible' says agent
Everton turned attention to Spain international after missing out on Leroy Fer
Everton's hopes of signing Alvaro Negredo look slim after the player's agent said a deal was “impossible”.
The Toffees have been linked with a move for the Sevilla forward after they saw an £8.6m deal for Leroy Fer collapse.
However, the Liverpool Echo quote Negredo's agent Juanma Lopez as saying the deal will not happen.
Also, Spanish newspaper El Desmarque are reporting that Sevilla have rejected a €14m bid for their player.
The 27-year-old Spain international, who has been linked with Tottenham this month is a more advanced player than Fer so would not be a direct replacement.
It was thought he could be available on a cut-price deal due to financial struggles at Sevilla, but if El Desmarque report is correct, it would appear they are ready to hold out for a high fee.
