Report – Newcastle Maintain Interest In Bundesliga Striker

Newcastle were linked with RB Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen in the summer of 2018. The Shields Gazette have put out a report noting a claim in the Express that Newcastle still have an interest in the Danish international.

The report in the Express only mentions Newcastle’s interest in passing and as being long-standing. The reference could be due to the links from a few summers ago. The crux of the report in the Express is that Everton are tracking the 6’4″ Dane.

The 25-year-old has most likely progressed beyond Newcastle’s reach as he has become a force in the Bundesliga. He joined RB Leipzig in 2013 from Danish club Lyngby for a little over £1m. His value now would likely eclipse £50m.

Poulsen has formed a lethal partnership with German striker Timo Werner at Leipzig. While Werner is the goal scorer, Poulsen’s play is vital in providing space and chances for his strike partner. Poulsen has already amassed 6 assists this season to go with his 1 goal.

We doubt that Poulsen would swap Champions League football at a resourceful club like RB Leipzig to join Newcastle. He also is not a prolific goal scorer with just 59 goals since joining Leipzig. Since Newcastle have only scored 4 goals in their first 6 matches, they would most likely want to bring in a proven goal scorer for the type of fee Poulsen would command.

    If you want to put simpletons in their place, I suggest you start with the one in your bathroom mirror.

    I don’t think I’ll call you high level until you can spell words like “immense”.

    Here’s how it might go: All of the Big Four do work for the government, some of it quite lucrative. BEIS therefore has some leverage that could be used to lean upon one of them to take on the job, with the obvious implication that it will be made worth the (un)lucky winning candidate’s while in future.

    Auditors are usually appointed and paid for by the companies they audit. This obviously creates a potential conflict of interest.

    But in Sports Direct’s case, the auditor will have been appointed by the government and with all eyes on the poor schmos handed the responsibility, they clearly be motivated to do an unusually thorough job.

    toon22 that link is 12 days old
    You’ve picked a few sentences to copy and paste
    However you missed out the crucial last sentence
    “If a majority of independent shareholders vote against him it will be horribly embarrassing”
    One third actually voted against him..
    Since that article was written SDI shares have steadily climbed
    They opened today at 15p above their price on the 11th September
