Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to conclude a €15 million deal for Alvaro Negredo this weekend.

Negredo has been linked with a move to the Premier League all summer, especially after his agent stated that there was a "95 per cent" chance of him ending up in England.

Recent reports indicated that Spurs were involved in talks with Negredo and Real Madrid, and they appear to have made swift progress.

According to The Mirror, a €15m deal has been agreed, and Negredo will complete the switch this weekend. Harry Redknapp had initially set his sights on Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, but with the Dutch striker now apparently ready to move to Stuttgart, it is Negredo who could end up at White Hart Lane.

Negredo is coming off yet another prolific season in Spain, having scored 19 goals for a modest Almeria side.
