Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is aware of interest from Liverpool. Indeed, Seville media sources say Liverpool have been informed they can land the former Real Madrid centre-forward for £17 million this month.

Negredo is refusing to be affected by all the speculation surrounding his long-term future but is aware of the interest from Liverpool.

He said: "I read something, but my representative has said there is nothing happening at the moment. I am comfortable with the situation and will just focus on playing for Sevilla."
