Tottenham Hotspur planning £22m double raid on La Liga

Negredo could be available for £18mFootybunker.com have been informed that Tottenham Hotspur are considering an approach for both Alvaro Negredo of Sevilla and Ibrahim Afellay of Barcelona.

Barcelona are currently in the process of trimming their squad to make funds available for the acquisition of Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas and Afellay has been quoted as one player who could be moved on, despite only joining this year and could cost the White Hart Lane side around £4m.

Negredo, who will be 26 in August has netted 31 league goals in 73 appearances for Sevilla and could cost up to £18m for the striker, however Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is still required to sell some of his players before anyone can be brought in and whilst Negredo is highly rated, the Spanish side are keen on a swap deal that might include Giovani dos Santos but no contact between the clubs has yet been made.

Redknapp will first need to depart with Peter Crouch and Robbie Keane to be able to make up the £18m Sevilla are likely to accept.

    If Harry gets Afellay for £4 million he is the master of deals, Van Der Vaart for £7 million was also an amazing deal.
    Gooooo Spurs!

    This will never happen, £4 mil for afellay is a joke he is worth at least 3 times that
    Plus these are players with massive ambition they will only
    Move for champions league not Micky mouse European comp! Harry sell Jenas,Keane,Dos Santos,Bentley
    And Bassong. Go and get Adeybayour,cahill,Berbatov and Marin. Then we will qualify for champions league again!! Coys

    Negredo will be perfect for spurs he is a complete stiker and a great finisher, getting service from bale and van der vaart he will shine,afellay would also be a good signing,MODRIC-BALE-AFELLAY-VAN DER VAART-NEGREDO-THATS FAR BETTER THAN ARSENAL AND LIVERPOOL ATTACK,COYS

    Spurs have not bought anybody of any significance this transfer window for a reason – Dodgy Del Boy Redknapp’s pending court case with HMRC! I’m certain Levy & the board are waiting on the outcome because there is a very real suspicion that Redknapp will get sent down! Your story has no substance to it!
