There is a report in FCInterNews that Newcastle have contacted the agent of Eddy Salcedo, a seventeen year old Italian U19 international.
Eddy Salcedo-agent claims Newcastle contact
This is a strange report as Inter Milan have a €8M option to buy the young stiker which they are almost certain to trigger.
The contact by Newcastle may be to confirm with the agent that Inter are going to buy the player, who is a product of the excellent Genoa CFC academy.
Eddy Salcedo went on loan to Inter this past season where he scored 12 goals in 25 games in Italy’s Primavera 1 youth competition. He can play as either a striker or on the left wing.
With Antonio Conte set to be announced as the new Inter Milan manager on Wednesday, we would also expect that Salcedo will be formally transferred to Inter in the coming weeks.
If not, at least Newcastle may be in with a chance to capture the youngster who has a bright future ahead of him in football.
