Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumor: Double Bid for Afellay and Negredo on Cards?
In the article, the website states that Spurs will first have to trim their squad in order to find the £18 million ($29.5 million) transfer fee Sevilla are demanding for tall Spanish forward Negredo, 25, who has an impressive strike rate for both Sevilla and his former club, Almeria.
This should not be a problem as several reports suggest that forward Peter Crouch, midfielder Wilson Palacios and defender Sebastien Bassong could all move away from White Hart Lane in the coming days in deals totalling more than that amount.
Negredo would be a direct replacement for England international Crouch, who has only scored 12 goals in 72 league appearances for Spurs and may move in part exchange for Mexican forward Giovani Dos Santos.
Barcelona winger Ibrahim Afellay, 25, has not fully settled at the Nou Camp, despite some strong cameo performances.
And with Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez having joined the team in an expensive deal, it seems Afellay's days at the Camp Nou may be numbered.
Afellay has lots of pace and is a direct footballer, who likes to take on his opponent. Although Spurs already possess numerous options in wide attacking positions, they are thought to be keen to offload Croat Niko Kranjcar and Englishman David Bentley, while Aaron Lennon has been linked with a £15 million ($24.6 million) move to Liverpool.
