It’s small wonder there will be a number of top Premier League clubs after Charles N’Zogbia this summer.
Charles N’Zogbia – 5 top PL clubs already interested
Charles has been Wigan’s star all season, and the Frenchman scored twice for Wigan at St. James’ Park earlier this season.
And when push is coming to shove in the relegation battle, the Frenchman is really producing for the Latics.
Charles scored two great goals on Sunday for Wigan against West Ham, including the injury time winner, and that win keeps Wigan in with a chance, a small chance, of surviving in the Premier League this season.
The reports suggest that Liverpool, Tottenham, Aston Villa, Sunderland and Newcastle are all interested in the player, who will probably go for around £10M this summer – and probably to one of those clubs.
Newcastle have already tried to get him back to St James’ Park in January, after they had sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool.
And when he was signed by Wigan from the Magpies in January of 2009, current Sunderland manager Steve Bruce was manager there, and so he may have an advantage, although Sunderland have looked like a lead balloon this year, since Darren Bent left the club.
It’s hard to know if the fact he was at Newcatsle for four and a half years from the summer of 2004 is an advantage or a disadvantage, but reports in January suggested Charles was willing to return to Newcastle.
There’s little doubt that Alan Pardew will try to get the player back to Newcastle, and if he does come back it says something for the drawing power of Newcastle – but it will be tough with clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham also interested.
