The Express are reporting today that Newcastle have put in a £10M bid for Tottenham winger Andros Townsend, and it’s not the first time we have been linked with the 23 year-old England International this summer.
Andros Townsend in England colors
Newcastle have been interested in Townsend for a couple of years now, and he’s not getting a lot of playing time under Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, so he could be sold this summer.
£10M seems like a good offer for the player who was loaned out to many different clubs to get first team games when he was younger.
But the news is that Tottenham want £15M for their winger, and that seems high – and another example of how expensive England players can be – especially England Internationals.
The news recently was that Newcastle could get in another four players over £10M this summer, and Andros Townsend would be a good acquisition for Newcastle, and he has loads of skill and can score goals and make goals.
The player lacks consistency but that can come with playing more regularly than he does at Spurs.
He’s played 9 times for England with 3 goals and is a regular in the England squad, and the Leytonstone-born player has played 86 games for Spurs with 11 goals and 15 assists.
