Sources in Norway are reporting that Newcastle United are keeping tabs on Norwegian youngster 19 year-old Marcus Pedersen.
Marcus Pedersen – Newcastle interested?
Newcastle are not the only club interested in the Stromsgodset forward who has already scored 5 goals in 9 game sin the Norwegian Tippeligaen this season
Clubs like Fulham, Bolton, Sunderland, Blackburn, Borussia Monchengladbach, Hamburg, Celtic and Auxerre are all reported to be interested in the Hamar, Norway born youngster.
Marcus has played for all the Norwegian youth sides including one appearance so far for the Norway U21 side.
The 5’11” striker made his debut for Stromsgodset last year, and has so far appeared 33 times for the Drammen based side with an impressive 15 goals.
Newcastle of course have already signed short-term the likes of Faroe Isles 18 year-old youngster Jóan Edmundsson, who played in the Newcastle Reserves last week, and we wait to see if Jóan will get a contract on Tyneside this summer.
From the reports it seems like Marcus Pedersen is in great demand, but he would be an excellent player to bring onto Tyneside this summer.
