News today that Everton are now interested in Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair, and according to reports are readying a bid for the England U-21 international and former Chelsea and Swansea player.
Scott Sinclair – Everton move in
The 24-year-old is a possible target of Newcastle United, and we were linked with him a couple of weeks ago.
Scott only moved from Swansea last summer after having a very good season in the Premier League when he scored 8 times in 20 appearances, and in Swansea’s previous promotion season he scored 27 goals in 50 games.
But Scott played only 14 times for Chelsea last season, and Everton boss Roberto Martinez is hoping he can sign the former Chelsea winger and take him to Goodison Park.
One reason that Sinclair could be a decent buy for Newcastle is that he could come at a bargain price, and Everton are keen to get in quickly for the winger, ahead of a possible Newcastle bid.
But striker is the position Newcastle have to fill much more urgently this summer, with the club already having plenty of wingers, so maybe the Tyneside club is not interested in Sinclair, although Scott can play up front as a striker.
Sinclair is on the Manchester City’s tour of South Africa at the moment, after he recovered from a blood clot last season, that forced him on the sidelines.
We don’t know if Newcastle are really interested in Scott Sinclair, but it would be a surprise if Newcastle are going after wingers, before bringing in at least two strikers to the club.
