Newcastle United seem to be in danger of losing out on top forward target Andre Ayew, who will become a free agent in the summer, when his five year contract with Marseilles runs out.
Andre Ayew – top Newcastle target
The news a week or so ago was that Newcastle had already met with the player’s agent and we have put our offer to the player, and Newcastle were hoping to close a deal.
But other bigger clubs are also starting to talk to Ayew’s agent, and there was news yesterday in Italy that Inter-Milan are currently in talks with the winger, and that Roma and Napoli are also still interested in signing the player.
So it’s one thing that Newcastle have talked to the player’s agent, but it’s another to get him to sign along the bottom line for the Tyneside club, who will not be in Europe any time soon.
Those Italian clubs interested in Andre are both bigger and more ambitious clubs than Newcastle are these days, and they compete regularly in Europe, so it’s going to be difficult for Newcastle to sign the 25 year-old.
We still have a chance, but it’s very rare that Newcastle can beat out the bigger clubs these days – although we did that last summer to get Ayoze Perez to Newcastle.
So you never know.
We live in hope – as usual.
