It seems that Newcastle will be looking to bring in two new strikers this summer, and if we can get somebody like Loic Remy through the door, then maybe Newcastle can bring in a young striker with good potential.
Jorgen Locadia – 19 year-old budding PSV striker
And one young player who had a good season last term was PSV’s 19 year-old striker Jurgen Locadia, who scored 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Dutch side, and played alongside 24 year-old Tim Matavž, who we profiled last night.
Jurgen began his career in 2001 when he joined VV Bargeres at just seven years old, and he then he played at FC Emmen, RKSV Sarto and Willem II before joining PSV in 2010.
Locadia made his debut in September of 2011 for PSV, when he came on as a sub in a KNVB Cup match against VVSB, and just a short eight minutes after coming on he scored his first goal for the PSV club.
But in that season he made only two appearances with that one goal for PSV
Jurgen was born in Emmen in the Netherlands, and he’s played for all the Dutch Youth sides from U17 through U21, but only once so far for the U21 side, so he is still developing at just 19 years old.
He turns 20 until November, and it could be a good time for Newcastle to consider the 6’3″ striker, and at the moment he would come at a decent price.
We have been told that Graham Carr has been scouting players in the Eredivisie last season, so we wonder if this lad has caught Graham’s attention?
