The Daily Mail is reporting that Newcastle have been offered 24 year-old Innocent Emeghara on loan for next season, and the player is currently at Lorient and is a Swiss International.
Innocent Emeghara 24 year-old Lorient winger
Emeghera was born in Lagos, Nigeria, but moved to Switzerland when he was a youngster, and he has Swiss citizenship and joined Lorient two years ago.
Last season he was on loan at Siena in the second half of the season, where he scored 7 goals in 12 appearances for the Serie A club, and was impressive.
Innocent started his senior career at Zurich in 2006, moved to Winterthur in 2009, and then moved to Grasshoppers in 2010, before joining French club Lorient two years ago.
He has played for the Swiss U21 side 8 times with 5 goals, and the full Swiss national side 9 times and played for the Swiss in last year’s Olympic Games in London, when he scored one goals in four appearances for his country.
Notice that Newcastle have been offered Innocent on loan, who seems an exciting player and has both skill and speed.
But it seems to us Newcastle are strong enough on the flanks, with Ben Arfa, Jonas Gutierrez, Sylvain Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi and Gabby Obertan, and what we need are strikers and another center-back.
So we’d be very surprised if Newcastle are tempted by the offer take this lad on loan.
Here is some video of the player.
