Eidur Gudjohnsen has struggled to make any impact at the Nou Camp since his Â£8M move from Chelsea 18 months ago.
Eidur Gudjohnsen – Dad says he will reconsider his future at Barcelona
Newcastle were interested in the Icelandic International during the summer, and reports said Sam even met with the player in Spain. But today Newcastle, West Ham and Manchester City have been put on alert after Eidur Gudjohnsen’s agent and father Arnor said he will reconsider his future at Barcelona.
Eidur has started just two league games this season and the 29-year-old’s father, Arnor Gudjohnsen, said today:
“Eidur is perfectly happy with life at the Nou Camp but he is not ruling anything out.”
“I think he will stay at least until the summer but it’s up to him. Eidur believes he will play more for Barcelona, but in football you can never be certain.”
West Ham have already had an Â£8M bid Gudjohnsen turned down earlier in the year, but are still looking to strengthen their strike force this season. Newcastle could use Gudjohnsen in a number of positions, not least of all in attack. But we know Eidur is also very good in central midfield and could also be used there. Eidur could play in any one of the 3 forward positions when Sam employs his 4-3-3 formation.
If Newcastle are still interested in Eider, it may be that Sam will try to make a move in January, becasue we could do with Eidur’s services sooner rather than later. Since he has Premiership experience we think Chris Mort would OK the deal.
We think Eidur is what we need at Newcastle, because he has loads of Premiership experience with Chelsea, and has already proved he is a good player in England.
What do you think? Would a move for Eidur Gudjohsen in January make sense for Newcastle?
