With being out most of yesterday, this is catch-up time, and we see that Newcastle are after West Ham goalkeeper Adrian as well as who seems to be our new striker target Joselu of Stoke City.
Newcastle is said to be in negotiations with West Ham for the player, and he would be a good buy for Newcastle if only because the 30-year-old Spaniard is experienced and has some good Premier League experience with the Hammers.
Rafa will be trying to get a good striker and a good goalkeeper into the ranks before long with there being only 26 days left in this transfer window.
The Newcastle manager is keen to add another experienced goalkeeper to the ranks, so he has the new signing fighting Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow for a place in the starting line-up next term.
30-year-old West Ham goalkeeper Adrian
This is what his manager Slaven Bilic said about Adrian last week:
“I am confident he will stay but on the other hand, Adrian is ambitious.
“He is very polite, a proper sportsman, a long time a West Ham and the club is very respectful towards him.”
“We want to help him.” “It’s a challenge between him and Joe, hopefully, he is going to stay.”
It’s good that Adrian is ambitious – he can do well at Newcastle – since we are definitely going places under Rafa.
Rafa and Lee Charnley have their work cut out for them this summer with many senior players still available for transfer.
The Magpies have players like Tim Krul, Henri Saivet, Emmanuel Riviere, Sadio Haidara and others who need to be moved out this summer.
It’s not going to be easy, but they can still get the job done in what’s a tough transfer window for us.
