Another player Newcastle United may be interested in, either for the January transfer window, or in the summer is striker Ã“scar â€˜Tacuaraâ€™ Cardozo.
Oscar Cardozo – reported interest by Newcastle
This is not the first time Newcastle have had a reported interest in Cardozo this season. He just moved to the Portuguese club last summer, but it seems that Benfica are letting it be known they would be willing to sell, if they can make a profit on the Â£6.8M they paid Newellâ€™s Old Boys for the player.
The 6â€™4â€ striker has so far played 15 times for Benfica and scored 5 goals.
The 24 year-old Cardozo, has played for Paraguay 12 times and scored two goals and was born in Juan Eulogio Estigarribia, Paraguay in 1984
Before joining Benfica he played for Newell Old Boys 33 times and scored 22 goals. He seems a decent player and certainly would add some power up front with his strong heading ability.
