Newcastle In With A Good Chance Of Signing 22-Year-Old Striker This Summer

Newcastle have been linked with a move for 22-year-old Club Brugge’s center-forward Wesley Moraes since January.

Moraes is interested in a move to a bigger club this summer with the Hammers also reported to be interested in the Brazilian striker.

He moved to Club Brugge back in January 2016, and since then he has played 130 times for the Belgian club with 38 goals and 14 assists.

And in the season just ended in the Juniper League, Wesley played in 29 games and scored 10 goals and had 9 assists.

There’s a report today that his agent says Newcastle are in the running for him, but before there can be any move to Newcastle, Rafa Benitez would need to sign a new contract to stay at the club.

The player’s agent also says that West Ham United and Newcastle have been in contact with him for the player over the last few weeks.

Rome-based Lazio are also interested in the player.

His agent is Paulo Nehmy who has said there has already been discussions about a move to Newcastle United.

Lazio fansite TheLaziali has spoken to Nehmy who said this about his player:

“Are Lazio interested still? Yes, it is true, Lazio are interested, but between being close and getting the business done it still demands conversations.

“What about Newcastle? Are they in the running? Yes, it’s true too, we already had a conversation.”

“But, Rafa Benitez needs to renew his contract. West Ham have also made contact.”

Wesley Moraes would be an excellent signing for us this summer if we can get him, and we assume Rafa also wants Salomon Rondon of West Brom to make a permanent switch to Newcastle.

The news is that Newcastle are hoping to get the Brazilian striker around £16M, but he could cost more than that.

    Munster – ‘Maybe the pink stripe is to appeal to the lgbt community of some such bollocks.’

    What an utterly idiotic comment. If a shirt has a bit of pink on it then it has to be something to do with the LGBT community? And even if that was true, what’s wrong with that? It’s 2019. Grow up.

    That’s allowing for a 7 hour time difference between Newcastle and Nanjing!

    Betty, don’t worry about trying to find out about the sale/none sale, it’s being covered in the new Goal 3 Movie. Goal 3 back in Black and White, this time around though they film a fat fcuker and his sidekick mini bald pen-is, should be great viewing, I heard they got all the material from this blog and newspapers.

    Isn’t there an Italian club club who plays in a pink shirt, I’d doubt if that was LGBT related given the macho image they’d want to display.

    Anyway pre-current times pink was a boys colour.

    EGB – Palermo wear a pink jersey. So according to Munster that team is just for homosexuals. For someone to openly say what he said earlier in this day and age is unbelievable. I’ve read some pretty stupid things on here but that’s right up there with the worst of them.

    Jane at a rough guess, Rafa will have signed a new contract, MA will have sold the club and around 200m will have been spent on new players.

    And the Town Moore Flying Pig display team will have performed a celebratory fly over St James stadium.
