Newcastle are presumably in prime position to sign Danny Ings, who is out of contract next June at Burnley, and Newcastle will try to sign the 22 year-old in January.
Danny Ings – 22 year-old Burnley striker
That’s the news being reported today in the Star and they call it an exclusive – which is rather strange since for almost every Sunday over the last several weeks – Danny Ings is one of the strikers we are linked with.
The question is whether Newcastle will go in for him during the January transfer window, since we could do with a striker for the second half of the season.
And Danny did himself no harm at all playing for Burnley against Newcastle in th e1-1- draw about 11 days ago, and he was easily Burnley’s best player on the night.
Serbian International Aleksandar Mitrovic
Newcastle have also been linked strongly with Anderlecht’s 20 year-old Serbian International striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is only 20 years old and in great demand by a number of top clubs, but could cost something north of £10M.
That’s a lot of money for Newcastle owner Mike Ashley to even think about spending on one player. 😀
German International striker Max Kruse
Newcastle have also been linked with a January move for 26 year-old German International striker Max Kruse, who plays for Borussia Monchengladbach, and is currently starting for the German National side.
Max would cost around £7M – according to reports – so of these three strikers Danny Ings would probably be the cheapest at around £3M – given he has only seven months of his Burnley contract to run, and will become a free agent in the summer.
Given those approximate transfer fees – which striker would you want Newcastle to sign in January?
