Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba look to be two good buys for Newcastle for about £21M for the two of them and while Chancel has been consistently good since he first arrived his former team-mate at Anderlecht Aleksandar Mitrovic is starting to show what a great young striker he is.
Aleksandar has played very well in both games since returning from his three game suspension and he played well against both Chelsea and Manchester City and scored his first goal at the Etihad Stadium.
Aleksandar Mitrovic in action last night – hey ref – foul!
Both players were on duty for their countries yesterday and both had very good games.
Serbia beat Albania 2-0 in a game that went off without any problems and Aleksandar looked very good in holding up the ball and spraying it around and certainly the local journalist sat the game though he was the star man for Serbia.
The only thing that was missing was a goal, but he’s keeping them for when he gets back to Newcastle – obviously.
Aleksandar already has 16 caps for Serbia and he seems destined for a lot more as he improves – hopefully – to become on of the best strikers in the Premier League.
Chancel Mbemba – in DR Congo colors
21 year-old Chancel Mbemba was back playing for DR Congo against Nigeria in an international friendly played at the Stade de la Cité de l’Oie in Visé, Belgium last night.
Mbemba picked up his 17th cap for his country even though, like Aleksandar, he is still only 21.
Mbemba put in a polished performance at the heart of the DR Congo defense to help keep a clean sheet.
One of the big positives is that both these former Anderlecht players look to be very good and should improve as the Premier league season progresses.
They both look good acquisitions for Newcastle United and we hope they can help us move uip the table – sooner rather than later.
