19 year-old Reading winger Tarique Fosu, who has played for the England U18 side seems to be attracting the attention of some Premier League clubs, with Newcastle one of the clubs said to be interested in signing the youngster, who becomes a free agent at the end of the month.
Tarique Fosu – Reading’s 19 year-old winger
He may be a free agent but Newcastle would have to pay Reading some compensation since he is under 24, but he could be one for Peter Beardsley’s Development squad for nest season.
Fosu made his debut for the Reading first team at the beginning of May in their very last game of the season, which was the 3-0 win at Derby County and was responsible for Steve McClaren’s side dropping to 8th place in the Championship and out of the play-off picture.
Tarique looks to have a very bright future ahead of him – and of course Newcastle will be looking to bring in a number of younger players for the Development squad this summer, as well as six or seven top players.
And we saw last season with Ayoze Perez – if you are good enough at Newcastle you will get your first team chance.
Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Brom are said to be the interested Premier League clubs after the youngster, and he tweeted this a few weeks ago on his Twitter account.
Big Decision To Make! ????
