Newcastle want live wire forward – report
The season is going from bad to worse for Newcastle
Cemented in mid-table they are neither in danger of relegation or the European places. And many Newcastle fans blame this comfort zone for a recent dip in form and results.
Alan Pardew Newcastle will probably be desperate for the end of the season at this point because many more defeats could spell the end of his tenure as manager.
All Newcastle eyes will now be on the summer transfer market and who the club can bring in to bolster their currently injury hit squad.
With Cabaye gone to PSG Newcastle will look to add some creativity into the side thorough the transfer window.
Having watched Olympiacos beat Manchester United 2-0 in the 1st Leg of the second round of The Champions League last month the standout performer on the night was easily Joel Campbell.
On loan at Olympiacos from Arsenal the Costa Rican forward has superb pace and real technical skill. His close control that night was excellent and he was a real thorn in Manchester United’s side.
We feel that he is potentially good enough to make the grade Arsenal. But, with a spending spree planned at The Emirates they may listen to offers if Newcastle put a serious bid in for the player.
The Guardian reckons that Newcastle may be keen on taking Campbell:
The Magpies want Manchester United-slayer Campbell
and The Star says:
ALAN PARDEW is looking to open the summer transfer window with a bang by overhauling the Newcastle frontline with Arsenal star Joel Campbell and Tenerife forward Ayoze Perez
Let’s take a look at him in action. Newcastle fans – does this guy have the sort of calibre that you’d be looking for?
