Agent Of Top Striker Makes Contact With Newcastle


It’s a bit of a surprise to us, but there’s some potentially good news in the Newcastle Journal today,  that the agent of top Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has contacted Newcastle about our intentions related to the striker.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – his agent has contacted Newcastle

The Journal is reporting that his agents have contacted Newcastle in the last ten days,  to inquire about Newcastle’s interest in their client.

The news in January was that Newcastle went so far as to launch a £8.5M bid for the striker,  who turns 24 next Tuesday.

That bid was turned down late in January,  and it seems St. Etienne want two or three million more than that – but that should be within Newcastle’s range, for what is their number one target this summer.

That’s true isn’t it? 😀

There was news a couple of days ago that Russian club Anzhi would bid £25M for the Gabon striker, which is about twice what his club’s valuation was of him in January.

And the Journal says Newcastle made not one but two offers for the  striker in January, with both bids being turned down, as we tried desperately to replace Demba Ba – but didn’t.

Newcastle are keeping their powder dry until next month before trying to sign anybody, and the transfer market opens officially on July 1st.

But agreements can be made well before then – and in fact Norwich City and Chris Hughton tied up Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel in early April, and he has been linked  with Newcastle  for a number of years.

French sources have indicated that while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang  preference is for a move to a club playing in the Champions League, he would also be interested in a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham also said to be keen on the striker.

    It would be an amazing way to kick off the start of the Transfer Window by announcing we had signed the PEA!!

    Just hope Dick Lamearse doesn’t pull his usual stunt of offering £5 mill less than anyone else!! This guy is worth every penny!!

    Just dont see us getting him. The agents probably just talking to newcastle as a way to make the other clubs in for him act a bit more urgently. Or maybe its all rumours and no-ones in for him. 🙂

    Lesh,
    To be honest, I had never really heard much Afro Beats stuff until I got out here, but I’m really getting in to it now. Unfortunately it only really gets played here if you go to some of the more ‘local’ bars where some of the patrons don’t really welcome Mzungus (White Ghosts) to much. But there are one or two which are okay to go to, so I try and hit them at least once a week.

    Don’t really know the names of too many artists because of that, but I have a couple of CD’s that a DJ burned for me, so it is all good!

    Jeff why is that racist? We already lose players to ACON, why would we want to lose more?

    That’s what’s wrong with this country, everyone being called a racist for the slightest of thing. Get a grip

    Oh ffs. Jeff! Put your race-card back in your pocket or get some one to shove it up your deranged backside. Grow up you moron. You clearly have no concept of what racism actually is. Have not been on here in a couple of days and i come back to this brainless nonsense.
