Newcastle have an awful lot of work to do in the transfer market this summer, if we are not going to be fighting relegation again next season, and there is news today that we are still trying to sign free agent Andre Ayew of Marseilles, who will leave the French club in the summer.
Andre Ayew – Newcastle have made new offer
There was new earlier in the year that we had made the player a big offer to the Ghanaian International said to be £30K/week tax-free, plus a signing on bonus of around £2M, but there are bigger and/or more ambitious clubs than Newcastle after the player, and in England they include Liverpool, Everton and Swansea.
Liverpool have always been the club Andre wanted to join, but the news has not been too convincing that Liverpool really want the player this summer, otherwise surely they could have already made the deal with the 25 year-old winger/striker.
Andre has called a move to Liverpool his dream move.
The new news is that Newcastle seem desperate to sign the Ghana International, given all the problems Newcastle have had this year and this season in the running of the club, and now we are said to be willing to offer him an improved four year deal.
The news two weeks ago was that a number of clubs had already made offers to his agents and they included Roma, Wolfsburg, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli, as well as the English clubs, and that he would make a decision towards the end of the season, as to which club he would join.
Newcastle need to sign a good player very quickly this summer, in an attempt to raise the severely downcast mood on Tyneside, after another terrible season under frugal owner Mike Ashley, and it wouldn’t surprise us if we have offered the player a new improved deal.
But such is the falling from grace of Newcastle United under Mike Ashley over the years, that signing this player would seem to be beyond us, although the reports suggest Newcastle are still in with some chance.
