Newcastle Again Linked With Talented 23-Year-Old Left Back – But Only On Loan


Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez told reporters on Friday that he is looking to strengthen the squad in every single position – that’s a statement for the next two transfer windows we assume.

And it’s become clear from the performances this season that we need a lot of new players next season if we can stay in the Premier League come May.

Rafa still doesn’t know how much money he will get to spend this month, but it’s not likely to be a lot coming from Mike Ashley.

There are reports in Italy that we are again after 23-year-old left back Emerson Palmieri of AS Roma, but the only option Rafa will have this month is a loan move with an option to buy this summer.

Emerson is 23 years old, born in Santos, Brazil, and only last year got his Italian citizenship.

He is of Italian descent on his mother’s side and recently said he would prefer to play for Italy rather than Brazil – the country of his birth.

Emerson Palmieri – – 23-year-old Roma left-back

The left-back was a regular last season at Roma, but this season he has played only 3 games for Roma.

Roma would be willing to let their left-back leave this month, and they have already started looking for replacements they could bring in.

However, both Juventus and Liverpool have also been reported to be interested in the talented left-back.

Newcastle need to bring in a left-back this month, and it seems Rafa will use Chelsea’s Kenedy in more of an attacking role if we can get the 21-year-old Brazilian on loan from the London club.

The most recent report says the Palmieri is available for £22M – but that seems a lot of money, but Premier League clubs want him, so we suppose the price goes up.

Rafa seems to rate this player, and he’s a good age and Rafa can make him a better player on Tyneside.

Players we don’t get in January will probably be targets for the summer, and that assumes we are still a PL club then and hopefully, Ms. Amanda Stabely will have bought the club from Mike Ashley by then.

Newcastle can only bring in two English based players on loan next month but any number of foreign-based players.

    Bournemouth outplaying arsenal… That’s how we must take the big guys on. All out. Confidence. Belief.

    If we go for damage limitation, best case scenario will be… Damage limitation.

    I get that but he does seem to have a few clubs linked and interested but the wages seem to be the problem. That’s what I think the stumbling block is and not a lack of suitors.

    Was going to write that when arsenal were leading!

    Anyway, still it’s ten teams in it. Let’s hope one or two of them go on a similar run to our nine match one.

    It likely will be Swansea, WBA, and one of the promoted teams. Though it’s really anyone’s call re all ten.

    But we must pursue the games against the top teams with real intent. See Bournemouth, Bristol City etc.

    BENITEZ: NO CLOSER TO SIGNINGS

    Rafa Benitez cut a frustrated figure after his Newcastle side were held to a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Swansea on Saturday. The Spaniard admitted his side had to be more clinical in front of goal if they wanted to climb the table, but said he was not expecting any arrivals to relieve the burden on his squad in the near future

    Will rafa walk we’ll have to wait and see but, no players coming in and no takeover on the harizon who knows if a club comes in for him and they could pay his 5 million clause i personally think it would bye rafa thanks for your time at N.U.F.C clever ashley another 5 million in his back pocket.

    Bristol City aren’t in the equation theirs was a cup game they had nothing to lose were we and other bottom clubs are having to watch goal difference which could be a very important factor come the end of the season

    ‘..Why rush in and buy a club that could be Championship football next season..’

    Possibly because Premiership Clubs don’t come up for sale very often and almost half of the clubs in the Premiership could get relegated following a loss of form such is the composition of the league.

    Rafa asked about signings yesterday after the game. Looks like he’s going to cry. Doesn’t give me much hope that anything will be done.

The players we have give there all but not good enough. I appriciate the positiverty on blog regarding takeover but in my eyes not happening in the short time. Hope im proved totally wrong

    In my opinion this is a realistic view of points scored in upcoming games.

    0 Man City
    1 Burnley
    3 Palace
    1 Man Utd
    1 Bournemouth
    0 Liverpool
    1 Southampton
    1 Tottenham

    8 points – leaving us 7 games to get 9 points in. It’s going to be so close.

    RUNAWAY777,

    A previous posting gave a very plausible explaination that players can’t be bought or sold during a takeover as they represent a major part of the valuation of the club and any changes would be reflected in the sale price and no doubt extend or halt the whole takeover process. Therefore, it appears nothing much Rafa can do about it.

    He has his grumbles about his budget but doesn’t look like a man at his wits end.

    What we don’t know is whether his budget grumbles are more to do with PCP Capital Partners not giving him a heads up on what he can spend.
