Ayoze Perez is being linked with some big clubs – presumably for a January move and those clubs are Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United who are all tracking the 22 year-old Spanish striker who has been in good form for Newcastle this season and he’s scored 3 goals in 10 appearances for us including the winner at Bournemouth on Saturday in the 1-0 win on the road – the first away win since 31st January.
Ayoze Perez – in demand
There was news earlier in the week from Sky Sports that Tottenham, and Manchester United were all tracking Perez with Liverpool compiling scouting reports on him.
We’d be very surprised if Perez is allowed to leave Newcastle in January and last March his agent Olaf Bonales didn’t think it would be good to leave Newcastle:
“I do not think there is a chance of him leaving, but who knows what will happen? We prefer to remain in England. If we need to change clubs, everything must go naturally. Now it is better to stay.”
We’d be surprised if any of that thinking has changed over the last eight months.
Perez joined Newcastle 17 months ago for €2M and turned down Barcelona and Real Madrid simply because he wanted a chance to play first team football and he’s been given that opportunity at Newcastle where he’s played 49 times for us with 10 goals.
If he moved to a bigger club there’s no guarantee he would play nearly as much as he plays at Newcastle.
But Ayoze has done enough to warrant a new improved deal from Newcastle and we hope he will sign a new contract to stay at Newcastle over the next few seasons.
What do you think?
