Newcastle want to sign Salomon Rondon of West Brom who had an excellent season on loan with us last season.
And the sooner Mike Ashley and company show some urgency in their talks with Rafa Benitez on his new contract – maybe we can sign Salomon for his release clause of £16.5M.
Both West Ham and Wolves will pay the release fee, but we think we may be first in line – if Ashley will only pay the price!
There’s a report in Corriere dello Sport that Newcastle are also interested in 22-year-old Club Brugge’s center-forward Wesley Moraes.
The news is that Moraes is interested in moving to a bigger club this summer and West Ham are also looking for a striker (as we know), and are also reported to be keen on the player.
The player is commonly known as Wesley, and was born in Juiz de Fora, Brazil and moved to Club Brugge back in January 2016.
Since then he has played 130 times for the Belgian club with 38 goals and 14 assists – that’s a good record.
Last season in the Juniper League Wesley played in 29 games and scored 10 goals and had 9 assists.
Rome club Lazio are another top club interested in the striker, who stands 6ft 3ins tall and is a powerful player.
The player’s agent is saying that two Premier League clubs – West Ham United and Newcastle – have been in contract for the player over the last few weeks.
It’s not clear if Wesley is a replacement for Rondon if we cannot get him – but this player seems to be an outstanding striker from what we can tell.
Sign him up!
