With all the reports we are seeing of Newcastle being interested in various players this summer, we could probably put Chris Hughton short-list of targets together for him – for his meeting with Mike Ashley next week.
Jeremain Lens – several PL clubs after him
There is yet another report today that Newcastle are interested in Z Alkmaar winger Jermain Lens.
And it seems that Wigan Athletic are monitoring the AZ Alkmaar forward, and would you believe Sunderland and Fulham are also keen on the forward, thought to be worth around £5M.
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has made a check on the 22-year-old while we know Newcastle have watched him several times in the last month or two.
The Amsterdam-born striker has played 40 times for AZ Alkmaar with 8 goals, and was on loan last season to NEC where he played 31 times with 9 goals.
Jeramin has also been capped 3 times for Surinam at full international level and has scored 2 goals for the side.
But of all the clubs interested in the player, we think Newcastle would be the best club for the 22 year-old – but there again we may be just slightly biased in that opinion. 😀
