Could Valencia’s Alvaro Negredo be leaving his current team for West Ham?

Rumours have been flying around over whether the 29-year-old may return to the Premier League during transfer season after Spanish sources say he is not wanted at Los Che.

According to The Metro , manager Nuno Santo is no enthusiast for the skills of the former Manchester City player and has put him up for loan.

Negredo signed for Valencia following a previous loan arrangement with an obligatory purchase at its end.

Hammers manager Slaven Bilic likes big, tall centre-forwards (notably the likes of injured Andy Carroll) and Negredo has those attributes.

But will the Croat rekindle the Irons’ interest in the player.

In 2013 West Ham put a £14.5million bid in for Negredo, while he was at Sevilla – although this was refused by both the club and player.

Perhaps he’ll be a little bit keener on a return to the Premier League this time round.
