Newcastle United are again being linked with 27 year-old PSV striker Ola Toivonen, whose contract at PSV runs out next summer, and who will be available for just £2.5M in January.
Ola Toivonen – available in January for £2.5M
The Dutch club will be looking to get a transfer fee for the striker, who joined them from Malmö FF four years ago.
Toivonen can play either as an out-and-out striker either in the center or on the wing, and would fit well into Newcastle’s new 4-3-3 formation.
And £2.5M is a transfer fee Newcastle can afford, and he will be a good buy at that price, and that seems to be the main thing that Mike Ashley looks for in any deal, so we do think Newcastle could be interested in the 35 times capped Swedish International in January.
Norwich, Fulham and Fiorentina are also likely to be interested in the striker, since they were after him in the summer, so Newcastle will have some competition if indeed they have the 6’3″ Swede in their sights.
Here’s some video of Ola playing for PSV.
