It was something that was bound to happen given the news from Kevin Keegan earlier in the week that Charles Nâ€™Zogbia may not be too happy at Newcastle United.
Charles N’Zogbia – wants to play for a London club
There is news today that both Tottenham and Arsenal could be interested in acquiring young Charles Nâ€™Zogbia during the summer.
The way we stand now with our squad the last thing we want is to start losing some of our best players, and Charles firs into that category.
Wenger has always been interested in Charles so thatâ€™s the reason that Arsenal are mentioned and new manager Ramos at Tottenham seems to have also been impressed with young Charles.
The French midfielder has apparently become unsettled on Tyneside, despite signing a new five-year deal at St James’ Park back in August. He recently cited he wanted to be nearer his family in London, and since both Solano and Dyer were allowed to move because of that reason, if Charles presses for a move, itâ€™s hard to see how the club can stop him.
We donâ€™t know if weâ€™ll be able to keep young Charles at the club but what we can try to do, especially if he moves to Arsenal is try to arrange a swap deal so we can get one or two of Wengerâ€™s young players. That could en dup being a good deal for the club.
But in all honesty, weâ€™d much rather just keep Nâ€™Zogbia on Tyne-side. We’ll start a poll today asking our readers if it’s right that NewcastleÂ should try to keep the youngster at Newcastle, given that he seems to want to leave.
Comments very welcome.
