Manchester City have signed Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo subject to a medical, according to the Spanish club.
The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Blues over the last few weeks and it now appears that a deal has been struck.
Speaking at a farewell press conference in Seville, the striker said: “For four years I have been very happy, but I think my time was over here.”
The deal is reportedly worth around £20million and will see Negredo join his former team-mate Jesus Navas at the Etihad Stadium.
“I am happy to be spending another year with him,” he said.
Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido released a statement on Wednesday hailing the deal.
“Manchester City are buying a great player, the top-scoring Spaniard in La Liga,” he said.
“Everyone should be happy – it is a great deal for all three parties.”
The former Real Madrid man hit 26 La Liga goals last season.
