The Sunday Sun has revealed today, it’s very difficult to deal with Gervinho, because he has multiple agents.
Gervinho – multiple agents representing him
But the local paper is reporting that Newcastle have not given up on Gervinho, although they have definitely lost out on Kevin Gameiro, who will join PSG.
It even seems that it will be a choice between Charles N’Zogbia and Gervinho, and perhaps N’Zogbia is Newcastle’s number one choice for a fast and skilful winger, and he’s now a proven commodity in the Premier League.
There seems to be nothing straightforward at all about Gervinho’s transfer, and there are a number of clubs still pursuing the African winger/striker.
The Sunday Sun has reported that Newcastle have already been quoted as many as five different prices for the forward, over the last couple of weeks, so we can see it’s a problem.
Multiple agents will be trying to do the deal, so that they get the agent’s fee once he is finally transferred, but it seems a complete mess at the moment, and is likely delaying any move by the player.
Apparently there have been no negotiations that have taken place yet with Lille and Newcastle, and the deal made for Cabaye with Lille was apparently exactly the opposite – simple and straight forward.
It’s also not surprising that Newcastle are concerned about potential African Nations Cup commitments in January, because they already have Cheick Tiote, who will be missing in Jnauary, and have reported interest in two other African stars – Demba Ba and Gervinho.
So the news is that Newcastle are still in for Gervinho, but maybe if they can get Charles N’Zogbia back on Tyneside, that will end their interest in Gervinho?
We shall see.
