News in the Sunday Sun today that Newcastle are after Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega.
Hugo Rodallega – Newcastle interested
The two strikers Newcastle have now targeted are both England-based, and are Rodallega and Nicklas Bendtner of Arsenal.
But Newcastle have some doubts about Bendtner’s character and attitude, but Alan Pardew has nevertheless presented both names to the Newcastle Board, and has asked them to pay out the money that is needed to get him another top striker.
The 26 year-old Columbian International has been at Wigan since 2009, and has looked good in the Premier League. and has so far scored 22 goals for Wigan in 94 appearances, since signing for the small Lancashire based club from Mexican club Necaxa.
The 5’11” striker would add some skill and creativity up front, which we don’t have with our strikers at the moment, and therefore could be a decent buy for the club.
In his career, the Columbian striker has 88 goals in 267 total appearances, and has played 40 times for Columbia with 8 goals.
