Neil Farrington in the Sunday Sun is reporting this morning that Newcastle United are after two star players, who are currently playing in the Spanish La Liga.
Juan Albin – 23 year-old Getafe striker
Valencia right winger Pablo Hernandez is said to be interesting Newcastle, and the 24 year-old Castellón, Spain born player is pushing for a Spanish World Cup place.
The other player Newcastle are sad to be interested in is Getafe’s Uruguayan striker Juan Albin, and the 23 year-old has played 97 times for Getafe with 17 goals.
The Salto, Uruguay born player stands just under 5’11” and played for Nacional in Uruguay, before moving to Getafe in 2006 where he has so far played 64 times with 24 goals.
However it’s interesting that Juan has still to play for Uruguay.
Hernandez has so far played only a couple of times for Spain, and has played 42 times for Valanica with 9 goals.
Hernandez was at Valencia from 2004 until 2007, before moving to Gatafe for one season, before returning to Valancia in 2008.
While at Getafe he played 38 times with 7 goals.
The interesting thing about Albin, is that he will be out of contract this summer, and would be available on a free transfer, but Hernandez has only recently signed a new deal at Valencia until 2014, and would cost real money.
So between the two of them, we have to think that Albin would be more of a real target for Newcastle this summer.
But it looks like new scout Graham Carr is already very active scouting players that Newcastle can move for this summer.
