Talking to GiveMeSport, talkSPORT presenter Alex Criminal has claimed that Newcastle solely have a remaining funds of round £40million as they give the impression of being to signal one other two attackers.
After spending round £150million within the two most up-to-date home windows, securing extra signings was all the time going to be tough regardless of the plain necessity for some attacking expertise.
Newcastle are at present in negotiations for Watford’s Joao Pedro who can play throughout a entrance three, however the restricted funds could present some issues as we’re additionally looking out for a backup to Callum Wilson.
It’s rumoured that our most up-to-date bid for the Brazilian was round £30m, leaving little or no within the financial institution for an additional ahead choice, until we go for somebody on mortgage.
On our bid for Pedro, Crooks stated: “I’m unsure, I believe they’re weighing it up, however I believe they’ve solely obtained £40 million to spend, they usually nonetheless need two in. Two ahead gamers, one huge participant and a backup for Callum Wilson.”
Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos is one other who has been talked about as a current goal, but it surely appears unlikely that we can signal each – particularly as Ramos would absolutely demand a beginning function, slightly than as a backup.
