Report – Another Premier League Club In For Emil Krafth



Flavien Tresarrieu, a journalist for L’Equipe, has sent out the following tweet about Newcastle’s right-back target Emil Krafth.

He has translated his tweet for us in response to a question.

Le 11 Amienois also share the same information in the linked article below that another Premier League club is now trying to get the player. The article says that Emil Krafth will definitely leave Amiens this summer and it looks like he may go to the highest bidder. Amiens are currently holding out for £6.3m for the Swedish international according to the French article.

There is no information on which other club are suddenly in for the 25-year-old but it now looks like Newcastle will have some competition for their top remaining target. Newcastle have reportedly offered more than double the amount that Amiens paid for Krafth in their recently rejected bid of £4.5m. It looks like Amiens are looking to get triple the amount they paid a little over a month ago.

It does appear that there will be a lot more to surface on this as now even press in Sweden are reporting that Krafth will leave Amiens for Newcastle. Though, they are referencing the reports from France earlier today.

    Jib and Jane is pure borderline Norman Bates sh*t, They are having a full-on conversation, logging in on one account then back into the other one, It’s actually quite disturbing?
    I wonder if when he is Jane he sticks a womans wig on to make it feel authentic lol

    He sticks more than a wig on mate.
    I’ll stop there. Too much information.

    Irish, I think Longstaff is in to stay. He looks to have added a little muscle and lost a little body fat. Very good impressive player in every respect, physically, attitude, technically. I don’t see anyone threatening his spot if we play 3 mids.

    As indicated by L’Équipe, discussions around the possibility of Newcastle United buying Lille midfielder Thiago Maia have occurred in recent days, but nothing concrete yet.

    Would love us to sign Maia but not at the expense of selling Hayden as then our squad hasn’t progressed at all!

    Get rid of Colback and Lazaar to make room for him in the squad and that would be impressive!

    You would then have 5 midfielders in Maia, Ki, Longstaff, Shelvey and Hayden with Matty Longstaff possibly getting minutes here and there

    Very poor window so far,all we’ve done so far is replaced two good goal scoring attackers with two youngsters who barely scored last season.The jury’s still out on Almiron,more experience needed up front.Good job there’s plenty of money left in the pot!

    I’m not trying to spread rumors but I heard jib once stole a mannequin from his local Primark (In London) he apparently has it in his bedroom window, fully dressed up as a woman and waves goodbye to it every morning as he heads off to work, I KBA to explain where he works, Sorry I meant CBA (Damn auto-text) and can only stress again I’m not an ITK I’m just sharing what I’ve heard.

    Damn off the blog for a while and some of you boys appear to have had a successful multiple hunt.
    Jib getting himself mixed up and posting in error has happened loads of times on here.

    He’s on the run and wobbling like a Chivers Jelly.

    One or two may now accept they’ve been duped – no shame – he is a devious and tricky customer, a mischief maker supreme.

    This is what was said about Maia last summer when Rafa showed some interest

    https://realsport101.com/news/sports/football/newcastle-what-you-need-to-know-about-thiago-maia/

    He had an awful 2018/19
    Lille paid €14M for him he’s now priced at half that

    Could you please tell us if Jib and Jane are one and the same, it might just put end to some of the poisonous rhetoric constantly being spouted on here!

    Perhaps you could have a ruling that everyone on the blog has a single persona.

    Very Risky strategy Dougie,
    Even with Rondon and Perez we had one of the lowest amounts of goals scored. It was only because Rafa had the defence as tight as a nuns chuff we didn’t go down. Next season we will need at least an extra ten goals just to maintain the same goal difference. I’m skeptical although Joelinton could blossom into a goalscorer as could Almiron…. Could being the important word.

    Apparently the club are better off without supporters like me who have supported them home and away for years, spending thousands of pounds, paying to be a member when I can’t get to games, always making sure I buy my shirts from the club shop. Yup, they can do without the likes of me’!

    Nicky, glad somebody agrees with me re Ki. I think he’s a lovely footballer. Re defensive midfielders in general, john giles had a point when he said the best midfielders could pass forward and tackle, therefore allowing far more creativity. It also allows for a 442 which is a brilliant formation in many ways, alliwing width to stretch teams and two strikers and a high press. That said, midfielders like Giles dont grow on trees.

    Agree aswell re Lobby. Super player. I think rafa got lucky with him because of shelveys injury. Again i didnt gain popularity points for that! 🙂 Not that i care. problem wud be loosing Hayden. Potential disaster as we have a potentially flakey defence.

    With three midfielders in front of three defenders we will be very hard to break down, but it sounds more defensive than last season when we played 3 attacking players. It looks like Shelvey is coming in for Perez and Joelinton for Rondon. Maybe two new wingbacks although I’d bet on Ritchie winning his place back when fit.

    For the record. I never said I know anybody at Grant Thornton who is involved with Sports Direct. I said I know some of the Partners in Chicago and know for a fact that at least 2 are crooks. And a couple more are idiots. I thought that sort of culture might pervade the whole company.

    But I never said I knew anybody linked to Sports Direct.

    I think it was good for us to move Perez in for 30m, he did well in the last 4 months, best season ever in terms of goals return but tbf he is bang average and lightweight. I’d take almiron and ASM ahead of him

    Our toon,
    I always stuck by Perez, although I admit he could have been upgraded. I don’t think he was happy here and we only seen the true Perez when he was playing for a move. His style of play will be better suited to playing at Leicester where he can link up with other attacking sorts. I have faith Almiron will be better.

    Our Toon, I was big Perez fan, and I think he’ll prove a very good buy for Leicester. St-Max is an interesting replacement. Very fast, very exciting, very skillful on the ball, full of tricks, terrific running at defenses, however , for all of that, there’s lots more required to be a successful footballer at this club and in this league. He’ll need to play with discipline, to instruction, selflessly most often, understand his role in the defensive shape, shirk nothing etc. Perez was all over that, plus he scored goals, some absolute belters, and he created chances too. St-Max will need to adapt, he can’t hope to succeed by simply running around in the final third.
