There is some good news for Newcastle fans today, that Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that he would like to move to England and not only that, but that Newcastle is a good club with passionate fans and St James’s Park is a monumental stadium. He’s such a good lad. 😀
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – do I hear Newcastle calling?
The Gabon International has been speaking to SkySports.com this afternoon, and Aubameyang says he wants a move to the English Premier League – that’s his first choice:
“I will choose England before any other destination.” “My dream has always been to play in one of the top two leagues in the world.” “Newcastle are a good club and St James’s Park is a monumental stadium, where there are passionate fans.”
The 24-year-old Gabon international striker is currently on vacation and he returns in a couple of weeks time, but this must give Newcastle officials some hope that they can pull off a coup and sign the top striker – our number one striker target this summer.
The news yesterday was that St. Etienne had turned down Newcastle’s bid for the player (€18M – £15.3M) , but accepted a slightly higher bid from Russian club Anzhi (€20M – £17M).
But as we reported this morning it depends on where Aubameyang wants to play his football – and whether Russia would be a good place for him to move to.
Well the lad says he wants to move to the Premier League, so that just has to be some good news for Newcastle, and maybe we can sign him after all?
And the fact there are a lot of French speaking players already at Newcastle, has to be an advantage.
Make no mistake – Aubameyang would be a fantastic signing for Newcastle – and it’s some good news we need, after all the Joe Kinnear nonsense that’s gone on over the last couple of weeks.
Maybe we are in with a decent chance?
