The Newcastle scouting staff are building up a huge dossier of players from across the world, that seem to be of the ability or youth to be interesting to the club.
Kevin Keegan – huge dossier of players being built by the scouting staff
We have been linked with so many players this summer already, that itâ€™s little short of ridiculous.
But at some point the scouting staff and Kevin Keegan will have to shorten their list significantly and make some definite approaches for players.
It seems that has only happened once this time around sp far, and we lost out to Spurs for Croatian midfielder Luka Modric.
But we have been linked with several top players including striker Bafe Gomis of St. Etienne, who looked really good with two goals for France last night in Paris, in his debut game for his country.
At some point we are going to need to be aggressive in the market.
But it does seem that the Euro 2008 finals will be completed first before we make some big moves, and that’s over 4 weeks away.
However, reports over the last 48 hours suggest we are in for Toulouse and Cameroon midfielder Achille Emana for around Â£6M (the fee varies), and by all accounts he is very willing to join Newcastle.
In order for us to have next season be what we need, we have to sign at the very least four good players while keeping most of the players in the squad we currently have.
The exceptions in our existing squad would be Ameobi and Rozehnal, who have proved they arenâ€™t really good enough for where Kevin wants to take the club.
It would be nice if we could get a good signing under our belts before Euro 2008 starts on June 7th, but we suppose we have to be patient, because there’s still lots and lots of time before August 31st.
But that doesn’t stop us from getting itchy feet.Â Â 😀
