There are some reports coming in that Newcastle United, who still need to sign a striker this summer, may be interested in Chilean International, 27 year-old Humberto Suazo.
Humberto Suazo – can score goals – but In Premier league?
Reports today suggest that Turkish giants Galatasaray have moved to sign one of the most consistent goal scorers in world football over the past 5 seasons.
He is the Chilean striker Humberto Suazo, but there is now word that both Newcastle United and Tottenham may be targeting the South American star.
We have to say immediately that we have no idea if this story is true.
And even though Humberto has scored goals galore over the last four years, we think it debatable whether he could continue to do that in the Premier league, the toughest league in the world.
Humberto AndrÃ©s Suazo Pontivo was born in 1981, in San Antonio, Chile, and currently plays for CF Monterrey in Mexico.
Here’s his playing record since 2004, which is strewn with goals.
Season Club Games Goals 2004-2005 Audax 62 40 2006-2007 Colo-Colo 75 70 2007 - Present CF Monterrey 31 19 2005-present Chile 24 10
In the last 4 years he has played 168 club games and scored 129 goals.
We’ll have to see if anything comes of these reports, but at 5’8″ tall he is hardly the holding big striker we think Kevin is after this summer.
What do you think?
