Everton boss David Moyes is reportedly going to make a move for Tottenham striker,Â Darren Bent, once he has sold current striker Andy Johnson.
Darren Bent – available for Â£8M?
It seems like Darren Bent could be bought for around Â£8M, which is less than half the ridiculous Â£16.5M Spurs paid for him last summer, from Charlton Athletic.
Bent, 24, was once a Newcastle target while at Ipswich Town, and we’ve been linked with him already this summer, so if Newcastle are really interested in Bent, we will need to move quickly.
We think Bent could be a good buy at Â£8M, and he has already shown that when he gets a game, he can score goals.
When at Charlton Athletic, from 2005-2007, he played 68 games for the London side and scored 31 goals.
And the England striker started only 11 games in the Premier League last season but still managed to bag 6 goals.
Sunderland are also said to be interested in the talented striker.
We would expect Newcastle to sign just one out-and-out striker to complement our current strikers Michael Owen, Mark Viduka, Oba Martins and 19 year old England Under-19 striker Andy Carroll.
We haven’t put Alan Smith in there, because we think he’ll move during the summer, if he wants a game next season.
