Alvaro Negredo ends our list of possible replacements for Radamel Falcao, but the Sevilla striker may be the most likely candidate.
According to Inside Spanish Football, rumors out of Spain claim that Atletico Madrid has become very keen on purchasing Negredo this summer.
The Spanish striker would be an excellent replacement for Falcao and would transition well to Simeone’s style of play.
It was also reported that Sevilla currently value their prized striker around €25 million. However, Sevilla will likely be forced to sell for less with the economic crisis that has hit the majority of Spanish clubs.
Negredo has been a force in La Liga for many seasons and would be a very strong performer for Atletico at a cut-rate price.
His experience and knowledge of the Spanish league mixed with his style of play would see him flourish at the capital club. He has all the tools needed to help Atletico continue their recent success.
It is quite obvious that replacing Radamel Falcao will be no easy feat. But Atletico Madrid must be sure to bring in a top-rated striker if they are to continue their growth and succeed in the Champions League next season.
