There is news that Newcastle scouts were at the Champions League playoff game in Switzerland last Tuesday between Young Boys and CSKA Moscow Champions which the sway team won 1-0.
The second leg is this Wednesday.
The news was reported by Blick that our scouts were watching Kasim Nuhu the 6ft 3ins Young Boys Ghanaian center-back.
And it seems that Rafa wants to bring in another central defender even though we seem to already have four already at the club in Lejeune, Lascelles, Clark, and Mbemba.
Chancel played well for us yesterday, and it was one of the few times he’s played a left-back.
22-year-old Kasim Nuho of Young Boys – new transfer target?
As it turned out, the winning goal was scored by Kasim Nuhu, but it was an own goal that gave Moscow their narrow win.
Tottenham Hotspur was also represented at the game last Tuesday and are also interested in signing the player.
Kasim Nuhu has been at Young Boys for two years now with the season before last he was on loan from Mallorca before he moved to the Swiss club permanently last summer and he’s played well for his new club.
The Accra-born player is young at only 22 years old so he could be one that Rafa wants to bring in now and groom for the first team.
It doesn’t seem that we need another centre-back with Mbemba showing he can do a job for us across the back four but if Rafa thinks that’s needed he will bring in Kasim Nuhu.
We were also linked last week with 29-year-old Legia Warsaw and Poland international Michal Pazdan, who was impressive at Euro 2016 last summer in France.
We’d like to see at least four new players signed before the end of the month so that we don’t struggle once again in the Premier league.
