Ayoze Perez is again one of Newcastle’s best players so far this season and he continues to improve as he did through his maiden season at Newcastle last term.
The 22 year-old striker is attracting interest from some top clubs – Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal are all said to be interested in signing him next summer.
There’s just no way Newcastle will let the youngster leave in January, but we could have difficulty holding onto him in the summer.
Ayoze Perez – A Spanish cap is his dream
This is what the player said yesterday on the Newcastle web-site – talking initially about the Spanish side who played England in a friendly in Alicante in south-east Spain last night:
“It’s good to see the squad and the many options available as we get ready for the Euros.”
“Some pieces are changing in the Spain team and there are young players coming through with a lot of quality.”
“It’s a dream for me to receive a Spain cap. It’s something that I would like to get.” “I’m on the way to achieving it – but I have to keep working like I’m doing and scoring goals is the key.”
“Hopefully one day I can say I have made my debut with Spain.” “It’s special. There are many quality players on both teams. It’s going to be a really good game.
“The perception I think in Spain is we see better quality from England now. They have better quality players than before.
“They have top players who can make a difference. But we have them too so the game tonight is going to be interesting.”
Spain beat England 2-0 last night and that was England’s first defeat in 16 games and two late goals from Perez Martinez (72 mins) and Cazorla (84 mins) was the difference in the teams.
Spain were the better side on the night.
Ayoze Perez should realize that playing regularly at Newcastle gives him every chance to reach his dream of being capped bu Spain – as difficult as that is with all the talent they have available.
Ayoze can achieve all his football dreams if he stays on Tyneside.
