We are still being linked with Bordeaux’s 24 year-old striker, Marouane Chamakh.
Marouane Chamakh – 42 goals in 182 games for Bordeaux
We expect Newcastle to sign just one striker this summer, and we may already have signed that player.
As we reported yesterday, there were reports that Moroccan striker, Marouane Chamakh, may have already signed for the club.
We had reported yesterday that on his wikipedia site there was information that he had just signed a 3 year deal with the Tyneside club, and the club will unveil him on July 1st.
It was also reported yesterday in the Le Parisian newspaper in Paris, and the Sud Ouest paper in Bordeaux, that the deal was done.
That information on Wikipedia has now been removed, but its saying now he is an official Newcastle player, and that he’s currently undergoing a medical at Newcastle.
We’re not sure what to make of this, and of course it is probably a ruse – but you never know. 😀
It’s also being reported the Moroccan will wear number 29 at Newcastle, his number at Bordeaux.
The more we find out about this player, the more we think he could be a really savvy signing for the club.
He’s 24 years old, 6’1″ tall, and has scored 42 goals for Bordeaux in 182 games for the French club since 2002.
He has already attained cult status in his homeland of Morocco.
