The news this Sunday on Newcastle seems to be the wingers we are going after this summer, with Rafa wanting to bring in at least a couple of wingers in addition to the already signed Christian Atsu.
The Chronicle are reporting today we are interested in signing young Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo and certainly in January we were linked a number of times with the 19 year-old England U20 International, who has played for all the England Youth Sides up to U20 level.
19 year-old Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo
Sheyi joined Liverpool from MK Dons back in 2011 when he was just 13 years old and he’s made 13 appearances for the Liverpool first team with one goal.
We have been interested in this player for over a year now and it seems Rafa is a fan of the young player and if we hadn’t been relegated last year Rafa would have tried to sign him then.
Sheyi is one of those impressive young players who Rafa wants to bring to Newcastle and develop them into first team players on Tyneside.
The time may be right for Newcastle to launch a bid for the teenager, because it doesn’t look like the he has much of a future at the Reds with the Hemel Hempstead born player getting very little playing time under manager Jurgen Klopp.
Ojo made just two first team appearances for Liverpool last season in the FA Cup.
He has been out on loan at both Wigan and Wolves in recent seasons to get first team playing time.
Ojo is of Nigerian descent and he has played 43 first team games so far in his career with 4 goals and 8 assists.
We think this talented young player could be a good buy for Newcastle.
