Newcastle Challenge Liverpool For Top Egyptian Winger


Sky Sports is reporting that Newcastle United have moved in for Egyptian International Mohamed Salah, who is an attacking midfielder, and the Magpies are challenging Liverpool for the player.

Mohamed Salah – Newcastle after Egyptian winger

The 21 year-old is at Basel in Switzerland, and the right winger has been heavily courted by Liverpool, who are interested in signing the player this month.

Mohamed has been playing  well for Basel in the Champions League this season, and that’s one reason the 21 year-old is being courted by some Premier League clubs.

Salah  joined Basel from Egyptian club El Mokawloon in April of 2012 on a four year contract.

The player was born in Basion, El Gharbia in Egypt, and he has played for the Egyptian U20 and U23 youth sides and has 17 goals in only 27 games for the Egypt National side.

Salah made his debut as a 19 year-old in September of 2011, in the 2–1 defeat at Sierra Leone.

The transfer fee is said to be around £12M, but maybe with an agreement just being announced for Montpellier’s Remy Cabella of Montpellier, this will mean that Newcastle will pull out of the chase for Salah.

But maybe not, and there’s a possibility this lad will be brought in before the end of January.

That would be a shock – but we hope it happens. 😀

There are other top clubs in addition to Newcastle and Liverpool, who are interested in signing this player, who looks a great prospect.

The news earlier today was that Montpellier have announced a deal has been agreed with Newcastle for the transfer of 23 year-old midfielder Remy Cabella, but it will not take place this month – and the deal will be completed in the summer.

Seems like the transfer business for Newcastle is heating up.

The deal for Cabella is very likely to be the biggest incoming deal since Mike Ashley bought the club back in the summer of 2007, and it is Joe Kinnear’s first permanent signing for Newcastle, since he became Director of Football last June.

Comments welcome.

    You will have spotted the quotation marks (‘agree’) in Sky’s headline?

    Even they’re not certain.

    It is just a bit of a shame we have to find out about Newcastle signings from Montpellier, anybody would have thought the DOF would want to take the plaudits for this, and be the first out with the good news.

    Liverpool will want to spread the payments over 5 years. We pay cash up front, hence the appeal of instant finance for transfers manxpie. Not saying I believe this transfer will happen, just saying we don’t do the ‘capital outlay’ thing.

    G,
    I doubt the player will be arsed how Lpool pay their money, it still amazes me why Marveaux chose us over them, was Dogleash in charge then.

    Isn’t the player that the bid goes to it’s the club. Marveaux chose us because he failed his Liverpool medical mate.

    g yeah i can see that being the case but just odd that this one has come out of nowhere
    especially since that french guy is dragging his heels with the player we’ve been linked with all window
    seems a smokescreen to me

    So what if we sign Cabella in summer and sell Cabaye than. Sell best player and buy one who never played in England. Where is wish to push for EL place in this season?? I said we will sign nobody in Jan but maybe De Jong on loan which is not enough to push us forward

    Seems to me Cabella is a Cabaye replacement.

    Cabaye only ever saw us as a stepping stone and that’s fine with Mash so long as he makes some money on him, which let’s face it, he will.

    I just hope we don’t end up seeing Cabaye leave on Jan 30th and Cabella not joining until June. That is the sort of thing Mash is capable, at the end of the day, they feel they are safe form relegation now.

    P,
    Dunno if it’s been mentioned but JfK Dof has told SSN that nobody will be leaving this window, which probably means nobody will be signed.

    If JFK told me it was going to get dark tonight, I would still wait and see rather than consider it a given J4A.

    That said, if PSG get the cash out, he will go and they will limp through until June with what they have. After all, Anita is doing quite well and they can bring in Ben Afree

    Still reckon DeJong will come in on loan. It’s just a Newcastle kind of deal. It’s not looking good for him at his current club.

    I know what you mean, but SSN have said that JfK has said Cabaye is not for sale, maybe they’ve took the nobody’s leaving and invented their own words to make the headline !

    I think Cabella will come to us next summer and we’ll sell Cabaye to pay for him plus another player Jail mate @36. The other talk of players now are just bollocks. Ashley isn’t going to pay enough to get Salad.
