With a number of current players leaving Newcastle this summer, it could be a very busy transfer market for the club, and it could also turn out to be a very good one – and Newcastle fans want it to be a good one – we need to see something positive soon.
Demba Ba – would be a great signing
Newcastle could lose all four of our current strikers this summer, so we will need to bring in a number of strikers – and who better than Demba Ba, who we’ve been linked with again today.
Demba was just great for Newcastle in the 18 months he was on Tyneside, and he averaged a goal every two appearances for the side, and he scored 29 goals in 58 appearances for Newcastle.
He would be a very popular acquisition if the club can bring him back in.
Siem de Jong – Ajax captain
And it’s always good to get midfielders in who can score a few goals, and Newcastle could have two more brothers on board in the summer, and we’ve been linked with Luuk de Jong’s brother, Siem de Jong, and we were first after the Ajax captain thirteen months ago and were again linked with him last month.
Siem would be a decent buy at around £6M, with his contract having just one year to run at Ajax come the summer, and he can play the withdrawn striker role very well.
Newcastle will need to replace Yohan Cabaye of course, and it seems that a number of our wide men like Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Marveaux and Obertan could all be leaving, so we’ll need to bring in some wingers too.
Clement Grenier - Lyon play-maker
The man who could replace Yohan Cabaye is Lyon central midfielder Clement Grenier, who Newcastle were after last month, but the player didn’t want to leave his club in the middle of the season – unlike Yohan Cabaye – who was very keen to join PSG, and by the way scored a great goal for them in the Champions League last night.
Newcastle tried to get Clement on the cheap last month (what’s new?), but they may have to pay out decent money for a player who is only 23 and has similar strengths to Cabaye – he is great at free kicks and he has tremendous creativity.
Remy Cabella - Montpellier winger
And as far as a creative winger goes, we tried to get Remy Cabella in last month, but in the end it seemed that his club Montpellier didn’t want to sell, because they didn’t want to pay the French government a heavy tax this financial year.
But it seems Remy will be available in the summer, but Newcastle may have to pay out around £14M for the skillful 23 year-old.
So there you have it – if we can get Demba Ba, Siem de Jong, Clement Grenier and Remy Cabella into the club early in summer – that would be a good start.
But only a start.
