News today that Italian sources are reporting that Newcastle are keeping tabs on Roma striker Stefano Okaka – full name – Stefano Okaka Chuka.
Stefano Okaka – 20 year-old Roma striker
But just how many players the Tyneside club are really following this summer is a good question, because if you believe all the reports – there are lots.
The 20-year-old spent the end of last season at Fulham, scoring twice in 10 appearances, and the news if that he may be available for around £2M.
Scottish giants Glasgow Celtic are also said to be after Okaka, who has played 30 times for the Rome-based club with two goals, and has been there since 2005.
The Castiglione del Lago, Italy born player, who is 6’1″ tall, has been out on loan at Modena, Brescia and Fulham, and has played for all the Italian Youth sides, including the Italy U21 side.
Newcastle cannot sign all the players we are being linked with, but if we can sign 3 good players for smallish transfer fees, and then get two exciting youngsters in on loan next month, for the full season, then Chris Hughton will again have done a good job in the transfer market, just like he did in January.
