Newcastle In Move To Capture Recently Scouted International


The Sun’s Alan Nixon is reporting as an exclusive that Newcastle United are trying to push through a deal for Amiens right-back Emil Krafth.

On Thursday, it was reported that Newcastle had scouted both Jarrod Bowen and Emil Krafth when Amiens travelled to play Hull City in a preseason friendly.

We heard earlier today that Newcastle have been put off from pursuing Bowen due to Hull’s £20m asking price. This is a very high fee for a player who has just one year left on his contract but with an option for an extra year.

Newcastle are looking to get the Swedish 24-year-old for just £1m. However this is only half of the fee Amiens paid to Bologna for the player this summer when they took up an option to buy after having him on loan last year.

So Newcastle will most likely have to increase their fee to at least match the price Amiens paid for him. We would also expect that Krafth would be very interested in moving to the Premier League and Newcastle.

Emil Krafth– 20 caps for Sweden

This would be a decent move by Newcastle as they do have two capable right-backs in DeAndre Yedlin and Javier Manquillo. So bringing in some additional cover in that area may be worthwhile especially as the fee does not look to be too high.

It might not be feasible for the club to do a big deal for a right-back this summer. So to solidify the position with Krafth could prove to be a savvy decision.

With time running down on the transfer window, Newcastle are currently working on two big transfers in Stanley N’Soki and Allan Saint-Maximin. Both players reportedly are very keen to join.

It also looks like the Allan Saint-Maximin deal could be completed in the next few days according to Mark Douglas.

    it gets spent every year
    on what who knows but it aint in the bank

    if you came on here once a week called out the shills and spent the rest of the time that you would be on here
    looking through the accounts you might find it

    your mission should you chose to accept it

    Scott is currently at the line, where many, many players have fallen before him. The odds are stacked against him that he will cross it.

    I’d pay the 20 million for Bowen, if his wage demands are within reason. Proven in the Championship, good age to make the step up, scores, creates, runs around, wins the ball, and would immediately be worth more than twenty million if on a four year deal.

    Re the HOF shops I’m fairly certain that Ashlie does have an idea for them, if memory serves me right I’m pretty sure he was thinking of multi use, with a floor dedicated to video gaming an updated more technology based arcade environment with extra bells and whistles to attract the teens, geeks and families.

    Would probably stretch his finances as things stand at present though.

    Yeah, Dummett is equally good as the left side centre back, in three at the back, or as a conventional left back in a flat back four. Either way though, we need another fullback, because Ritchie isn’t a conventional fullback, and Dummett isn’t a wing back. The other side to me isn’t a priority, so I wonder about the validity of this report, unless Yedlin is looking for a move as has been mooted.

    EGB: the problem with H of F is that it will take a while to make them multi-use. As I said, Department Stores as we used to know them are dead. He need shops, offices, apartments, restaurants in those spaces. It will work, just like the rejuvenation of places like some seafronts, docklands and quaysides did. It will take time though.

    I think the Fat Man is very smart but may not have realized how bad a shape H of F was in and their liabilities.

    If we bring in more players who cost a lot of money and are said to have talent, Ashley, having appointed Bruce is almost repeating the advent of McLaren’s reign.

    And he claims to have learned from his mistakes? Shish, astonishing.

    Toon22 can short SD stocks if he is so sure about SD tanking. I think he can do this on other markets before the London Markets open. After hours markets, also. I am not going to explain what a short sale is because it is too boring. He can also buy put options and make a fortune if he is right. I am also not going to explain what they are either. 🙂

    Bruce has better man management skills than McClaren. I think he’ll get the side to run around for each other. In that regard, I’d take Bowen ahead of St Maximim. The concern regarding Bruce is that we’ll be quite one dimensional. We’ll have one basic approach and that’ll be it, but to be honest if we do end up with a hard running group with decent quality, depth and balance. I think Bruce will send them out ready to compete and win points.

    Bruce seems to rate Aarons highly from his loan spell at Sheff Wednesday so it wouldn’t surprise me if he gets a start on the first game of the season and based on his performance today, i’d Have no issue with that because he was very good.

    I think Almiron was playing just behind Joelinton today also for a while and there was a few moments of clever link up between the 2 so maybe we’ll see Almiron playing as a number 10 which is where he was most effective for Atlanta United.

    On Bowen, if we’re spending £20m on another attacking player then for me it would be Saint Maximin over him. Maximin is an absolute livewire and unpredictable with huge potential. Abit like a Wilfried Zaha type player.

    Thanks for posting some entertaining and perceptive craic about avatars and their symbolism.

    The blog was rolling along quite nicely, as it has been all day and it went downhill when the bitching, sniping and stirring oozed in about nine – ten.

    And whose appearance coincided with the crap’s arrival? There are no prizes for spotting Jib and Boloney who says he’s a certified financial something or other. Jib’s portfolio expanding by the day and his CV must make interesting reading.

    Just for Toon22:

    if you have a brokerage account you can borrow shares/stocks of SD and immediately sell them.

    Then, when the price drops, you buy them back and pocket the difference.

    In your example of the death of SD on Monday. You would borrow at a pound (100 pence). Then when the shares drop to 10p you would buy them back and give them to the brokerage company and pocket the difference – 90p.

    It is pretty risky though, but, good luck.

    Hopefully, you have a dog to sit in a doorway with if this turns against you.
