Newcastle have been linked with PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen as a potential target in the January transfer window, and since Ola’s contract runs out in June, he would be available at a cut price fee, thought to be about £2.5M.
Ola Toivonen – unsettled
This is not the first time Ola has been linked with Newcastle, and we know owner Mike Ashley is always interested in doing a good deal for a good player.
PSV are in the position where they can sell the player in the January window for a reduced transfer fee, or lose him for nothing in the summer, and the news is that they are willing to sell in January, and would like to get at least £2.5M for the 35 times capped Swedish International.
The 27-year-old was asked about a potential move in January, and this is what he said today in the Daily Star:
“I haven’t heard anything, it is my agent who takes care of that,” “Nothing new has happened.”
Toivonen is not particularly in good goal scoring form this season and in 17 total appearances he has only one goal, although in his time at PSV he has 77 goals in a total of 193 appearances.
Ola can play up front as a striker or out on the wing, and would therefore seem to be well fitted to play in Newcastle’s 4-3-3 formation.
