The three strikers Newcastle have been linked with most closely in the press over the last few months are Burnley’s 22 year-old English striker Danny Ings, Anderlecht’s 20 year-old Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Borussia Monchengladbach’s 26 year-old German International striker Max Kruse.
Danny Ings – 22 year-old Burnley striker
And in the poll we have conducted, Danny Ings has come out on top with 43% of the vote followed by Mitrovic on 36% and Max Kruse on 21%.
With Danny’s contract running out in June, we think he would cost around £3M in January, with Mitrovic possibly costing more than £10M, and Max Kruse being priced around £7M.
With two pf the strikers we brought in last summer, Frenchman Manu Riviere and on-loan Argentine Facundo Ferreyra not showing through much at all so far this season, it would be good if Newcastle can bring in a decent striker to help Papiss Cisse and the young impressive 21 year-old Spaniard Ayoze Perez up front.
It remains to be seen if Burnley will cash in on Danny Ings in the January transfer window, rather than lose him for nothing in the summer, but SkyBet have Newcastle at 10/11 odds on favorites to sign him in January.
But SkyBet also have Danny at 4/5 odds on to stay at Burnley until the summer.
Danny has scored four goals in 14 appearances for Burnley this season, and Alan Pardew is known to be a big admirer of the Hampshire born youngster.
And in our 1-1 draw at Turf Moor a few weeks ago, Ings looked impressive and was easily Burnley’s best player.
