Report – Newcastle One Of A Number Of Clubs Tracking Young Forward



Like this time last year, Newcastle may have to draw up two lists of transfer targets, however, for very different reasons this time around. Last season, Mike Ashley had agreed to sell Newcastle to the Saudi-back consortium and seemingly all that stood in the way was the formality of the EPL’s owners’ and directors’ tests.

However, the tests lingered on and on forcing Newcastle to prepare for the offseason under a cloud of uncertainty. Newcastle were linked with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Edinson Cavani while also bringing in free agent Mark Gillespie and extending Javier Manquillo.

This year the uncertainty revolves around whether we’ll be a Premier League club next season. So Newcastle could be scouting players based on us surviving or dropping into the Championship for a third time under Mike Ashley.

So when Newcastle are linked with a player, the uncertainty of our current situation must be taken into account. That goes with our latest reported target in Bristol City’s Antoine Semenyo. who TEAMtalk claims is on Newcastle’s radar.

The report states that Crystal Palace are leading the chase for the young forward, who has five goals and seven assists in all competitions for the Robins this season. He even put one past Freddie Woodman when they defeated Swansea 3-1 in February.

Semenyo is a Bristol City Academy product who can play on either wing or as a striker. He’s come into his own this season making 43 appearances in all competitions after a few loan spells with Bath, Newport County, and even Sunderland.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at the Stadium of Light but made just 7 appearances as he did not feature when the season resumed after lockdown.

Chelsea had a £1m offer rejected for the 21-year-old back in 2019 with Bristol City holding out for double that amount at the time. While he was on loan with Newport County in 2018, Manchester United had scouts watching him.

Brighton, Southampton, West Ham, Sheffield United, Norwich, and Watford are credited with a current interest in Semenyo along with Newcastle and Crystal Palace. His contract runs until 2023 so we’ll see if anything comes of this latest transfer link.

    Will anyone on this blog ever believe a linked player again? The scouts ain’t out and about they are all on furlough so where are these reports coming from? Makes me sick that 99% of reports going round on articles and newspapers turn out to be BS. Any linked players the last couple of months is pure fabricated lies.

    If the player mentioned is worse than we have in the squad, free and under thirty, I just assume he’ll sign in next window.

    You must be really excited at the prospect of signing up to Twitter. You’ll be able to enter the court of one Dave Temple and if you do, he’d be delighted at the number of followers he’s attracting.

    I wonder if Ashley is genuinely shocked at what’s happening or whether he doesn’t care and has plans on what to do with us should we go down.

    If he wanted to deliberately take us down he could have done it a lot cheaper than this, you really can’t fathom out what he’s allowing to happen.

    I saw Arnold Schwarzenegger eating a chocolate egg so I said to him, “I bet I know what your favorite Christian festival is.”

    He said, “Have to love Easter, baby.”

    Aye he’s had a lot of bad luck, it’s going to take some bottle to come back from those injuries, hope he does though even if he never plays for us.

    Exactly beer! Well the part about he shouldn’t be mentioned anymore.

    The craic is a few wanted him removed and they got that wish but ever since he has been banned all I hear is Jib this and Jib that and it makes no sense. Why go on about someone a lot on here have a dislike for? Everyone could of put him out of there memory but that’s far from the reality

    Who wanted him removed and got their wish? Nobody to this day knows why he was removed, not everyone hassles and harangues the Harrisons for other bloggers to be banned.

    Jib’s expulsion from the blog was his own doing. It had nothing to do with anyone else. Just wanted to clear that up.

    You’d think with all of the promising young players we do sign that we’d have an U23/U21 and younger team squad second to none and we should but it just don’t happen.

    Really p!sses me off when I see the likes of Mount and Foden playing for England, nowt against them, well done I say but we just never get our lads who have the same potential to that sort of level.

    Wonder if toon22 has any thoughts on why that is! 😉

    Interesting story from the Mag

    https://www.themag.co.uk/2021/04/harry-kane-makes-a-mockery-of-steve-bruces-claims-newcastle-united/

    Harry Kane has played 48 matches so far this season (league, cups and internationals) – most of them for 90 minutes.

    Yet Bruce complains of our busy schedule, tiredness in the players and the need for 3 or 4 days off a week.
