Sevilla striker would love to join Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has been hugely impressed with the way his two Spanish players have settled in at Arsenal. Both Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla have done very well since coming to the Emirates, and Wenger has spoken about the fantastic technical ability that Spanish players have drilled into them from a young age. Wenger also spoke recently about what a bargain Swansea found in Michu, and he knows that many Spanish clubs are struggling financially so may be open to selling some of their stars.

Sevilla have publicly declared that they have no intention of selling their best players, but Spanish football insiders believe that they are not really in a position to turn down decent offers. Arsenal could do with contacting the club as soon as possible, because their Spanish international striker Alvaro Negredo has expressed his wish to play in the Premier league, and he would make a fantastic addition to the Gunners.

The 27-year old has spoken to international team mates who play in England, who have told him that life for a footballer is better here. In Spain, there is constant media and public scrutiny and it does take it’s toll on players. Negredo is a strong forward player and his talents would fit in well in the Premier league. His scoring record for club and country is impressive, at around a goal every other game.

Negredo would cost a little more than Adrian Lopez, but carries more of a goal threat. If Arsenal do not try to sign him, I am sure another English team will. Having won Euro 2012 with Spain, Negredo would be looking to join a big club and I think Arsenal would be perfect for him.

“There comes a time when a cycle comes to an end and I don’t know if it will be sooner or later, but I think the English league is great and I think my style of football would be well suited to it.”

    I repeat i know that i know nothing. We are only in the market for exceptional quality you know. Negredo is a player i like but it will be hard for me to learn how to pronounce his name.

    I can confirm we are close to keeping walcott at the emirates and he is like a new signing you know. I feel like the squad is getting stronger every single day and a win this sunday can turn things around.

    Kinds regards

    Your beloved arsene

    I think he(Negredo) is better than Adrian Lopez. Wenger please get him soon. The time is going. 9 days already dead. Unless Arsene build the team now, Champions league place will be in doubt. 6th – 9th will be arsenal’s place.
    Arsenal should also buy DM like M’Villa

    So what was this whole bolony about Liga being the best league (REAL FIFA AND UEFALONA) when the Spanish players them self are saying the EPL is better?

    pique was out half a season and was in ToTY

    RVP carried arsenal to 3rd (as much as i hated him leaving, thanks board) he deserved some credit

    so how can liga be better if their own players are leaving and also spains in debt and they call EPL big spenders

    arsenal’s new signings should be:
    1.gk steklenburg available at 5 million. he has plenty of experience and can challenge szezcsny for 1 spot.

    2. cdm victor waynama is the best young defensive midfilder in europe at the moment. he is big strong physical, aggresive in the air and very good passer and strong tackler.

    3. striker david villa is the one of the best striker in the world. he had a terrible injury last season and is 31 but he has made a good recovery this season and scored 8 goals but hasnt been played regulary for past few months.

    Every day we are linked with someone, but at the end of the day we don’t have signed nobody, but the list of available players getting shorter, because they are signing with other clubs. What are we waiting for? We now have important games against city, Swansea, chealski… If we lose these games because our players a tired, because we have no depth, it’s unnecessary to buy new average players on 31. Januar.

    I’ve been championing Negredo for years since Real Madrid let him go. He’s a fantastic finisher, strong as an ox and a real workhorse. He’s got all of Tevez good traits and none of the bad. The only strikers in La Liga that I’d have over him are Falcao & Higuain.

    I’d absolutely love it if we bought him!

    negredo tecnically is a good player,but the best thing in his player is his amazing finishing abilities ,in case of goal scoring situation you can be sure 100% it will be a goal wen it is wuth negredo,,,,even his physical build is more suited to the premier …..and as a striker hes far more better than adrian.

    Look I’m sick of all you “arsenal fans” spending all ur time blaming Wenger for all our problems. Wenger knows best and when he does eventually go he will be remembered as our best ever manager. When I look at our first team I think it can beat anyone as long as their confidence is high. We already have 90% of the media slagging us off so if you hate what’s goin on at our club so much then burger off and become a Chelsea fan. If we can get a world class player at the right price then that’s sweet but if not I’m happy with the team we got. I do think we play way too many crosses tho especially when wee theo is on his own. Back to playing ball along the floor I think.

    From looking around all the speculation it’s obvious to see that we are continuously rumoured to be linked with every player in the world, including their children. But what makes me laugh more than anything is when people comment saying Arsene Wenger isn’t spending money because he wants to pocket it and leave @ the end of the season… Where do you fans come from? Arsene Wenger is a has been whether you like it or not, but he is NOT going anywhere at the end of the season. Although it would be better news to me than a top class signing, his arrogance and delusional tactics are here to stay for the meanwhile. Blame the owners!! Lets bring in Frimpong the beast, M’vila, a replacement for Mertesacker, a replacement for Ramsey and a top class forward. No matter how shit Wenger has become, even he can’t fail with that!

    I were reading down the comments and were finally glad to see Balanced Gooner point out that nowhere does he mention the headline, there is no point trying to rope people in with a misleading quote as all the gooners on here seem to be loyal to the j Arsenal website as i regularly see all the usual suspects.

    If Wenger sees him as an Oli type of player i dont believe it will never happen. My opinion is, i dont think the player is anything special and dont believe the goalscoring floodgates will be burst open in any way shape or form. Whats the story with player links, are they just trying to link us with everyone going coz the winter window is a big damp squib so are looking to fill the paragraph space.

    It would be very poor judgement on our part to not raid le Spanish league before we miss the boat, with sooo many of the worlds most talented players currently camped within, it would be negligent in not poaching before the clubs start getting there houses in order. There are many top players who would most definitely take us in the right direction.

    @Mark id love to see us get him, havent seen anyone as cool as Michu when in on goal since the Bergkamp.

    Che are supposedly trying to replace Lampard with Fellaini, in my opinion Michu would be a better replacement for Lampard. At any top club Fellainis power will be more used towards defending. With eve he is a good attacking midfielder, mainly coz of the way eve play, allot of good old fashioned English kick and rush. Within a top club we/they try playing football first, he still would be a massive threat when going forward, but i still believe primarily he will be a stubborn no nonsense type of lad. Michu would more than replace Lampards goals. I would be very interested to know if he (Michu) has any sort of release clause, im sure it would be reasonably quite low considering he shot up out of nowhere.
