Newcastle are being linked via reports in Italy with 22 year-old Inter-Milan midfielder Joel Obi.
Jol Obi – 22 year-old Nigerian International
The 11 times capped Nigerian International made his debut for Inter in September of 2010, in a UEFA Champions League group stage game against Werder Bremen, and by our reckoning he has played about 55 times for Inter-Milan since then.
The left footed central midfielder was supposed to be a Sunderland target in January, and we’re not sure if there is real interest from Newcastle for the player, although reports out of Italy are saying that both Sunderland and Newcastle are interested in the youngster.
Inter-Milan are said to be ready to sell the player this summer, but we’re not sure how much the Lagos=born player would cost.
