The Premier League runners-up are set to bid £20 million for the striker, who admits he may have to leave the Liga side as his ambitions are not currently being metAlvaro Negredo has declared he is at a "decisive moment" as he contemplates a switch from the Liga side to Manchester City.
Goal exclusively revealed on Thursday that the Premier League runners-up have received the green light to complete a £20 million move for the striker after the Spanish side confirmed the signing of Carlos Bacca from Club Brugge.

"Right now, I'm at Seville and like it very much," Negredo told reporters.
"If I stay that'll be fine but if I leave then it will be because it benefits both the club and myself.
"I'm happy on a personal level - but collectively we have not achieved the goals we wanted.
"Now perhaps I am at a decisive moment for my future."
As well as Negredo, City are also closing in on Fiorentina attacker Stevan Jovetic after missing out on first-choice targets Isco to Real Madrid and Edinson Cavani, who is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain.
