Newcastle Interested In Speedy Anderlecht Winger

There will be lots of news stories about players Newcastle will be after in this summer´s transfer window and assuming we can stay in the Premier League then it could be one of the biggest transfer windows ever for Newcastle and will probably exceed the £52M we spent last summer.

But first of all we have a fight in our hands to stay in England´s top division, although again results went for us today when Swansea, after going ahead 1-0 in the first half at White Hart Lane were beaten 2-1 with two goals in the last 20 minutes form Spurs.

Tottenham go second top, 2 points behind Leicester City and 3 points above Arsenal who surprisingly lost 3-2 at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Frank Acheampong – 22 year-old Anderlecht Ghanaian International winger

We have already been linked today with Lyon 22 year-old center-back Samuel Umtiti and news also that we are  interested in Anderlecht’s 22 year-old speedy winger Frank Acheampong.

One big mistake Newcastle have made in the last two transfer windows is we have not strengthened the defense sufficiently and we also have failed to get a top proven goalscorer into the club – and we assume those will be the top priorities in the summer.

Frank Acheampong has played 113 times for Anderlecht since signing for them in April of 2013 for €1M from Buriram United in Thailand.

In those games he has 13 goals and 13 assists since making his debut against KSC Lokeren in July three years ago.

Some big clubs are also said to be interested in the 8 times capped Ghana International and they include Marseille, Juventus and Inter Milan.

The 5ft 6ins tall Ghanaian has an excellent left foot and he possesses some speed too, so he would fit nicely into the Newcastle side.

But this summer Newcastle must make a priority of getting top defenders into the club and a recognized Premier League goalscorer such as Saido Berahino.

It was good to see Saido have an excellent game for West Brom yesterday when he scored one and made one in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace and he looked back to something like his best form.

Comments welcome.
