Newcastle Preparing Offer For Championship Star – Report



Newcastle have moved quickly with an opening bid for top target Kieran Trippier. The 31-year-old is reportedly keen on coming to Tyneside with Atletico manager Diego Simeone resigned to losing his star right-back should the player push for the move.

Trippier is in Atletico’s matchday squad against Rayo Vallecano this afternoon. Newcastle fans will be eager to learn if the England international is named in the starting eleven for the 3:15pm kickoff.

Trippier is not the only signing Newcastle are working on, though he is the most advanced and the only reported bid so far. There was a report last night in The Mirror that Newcastle have contacted Arsenal over a loan deal for exiled striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 32-year-old is currently away on international duty but could be available after testing Mikel Arteta’s patience early last month. This link seems remote at the moment and there are questions about whether Aubameyang would be a good fit at Newcastle.

The Mirror is also reporting that Newcastle are preparing a bid for Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz. In early December, a report emerged that Newcastle had been scouting the 22-year-old.

According to the latest report, Newcastle are preparing a £20m offer for the rising Championship star. He has filled the void at Ewood Park left by Adam Armstrong, who joined Southampton in the summer, by scoring an impressive 20 goals in 24 league appearances.

Brereton Diaz equaled Alan Shearer’s mark by becoming just the second Rover to score 20 goals before the turn of the year. He received the following message from the Toon legend on accomplishing that feat.

Brereton Diaz qualifies for the Chilean national team through his mother and made the switch earlier this year. He had previously represented England up to the U20 level. He’s gotten off to a decent start with 3 goals in his 9 caps for Chile.

His contract runs out in the summer, though Blackburn have an option to extend him for another year. They’re desperate to tie down the budding superstar but may have to cash in on him sooner rather than later.

Callum Wilson’s calf injury has placed an increased priority on adding a striker this month. There is no shortage of targets with Torino’s Andrea Belotti, Real Madrid’s Luke Jovic, Flamengo’s Gabriel Barbosa, and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele all being linked in the past few days.

This pending offer for Brereton Diaz may be a bit premature depending on how other targets pan out. Newcastle need a proven goalscorer in top-flight football this month. While Brereton Diaz is on the rise, the jump from the Championship to the Premier League is a very difficult one to make.

    That was my biggest problem with Rafa
    Home or away top or bottom always played 5 at back and 1 up front
    Wentv1-0 down still did not change – good manager but to set in his ways/system for me
    3 for the Nuffield -Wilson, ASM and Fraser –

    Wish we had a team to put out against Everton as we would have beat them fairly easily

    It wouldn’t surprise me if we don’t get all the players we need till the end of the window

    Those close to Gabriel Barbosa have told Chronicle Live that the striker “likes” the idea of a move to Newcastle and he would love to team up with fellow Brazilian Joelinton. #nufc

    If we get 5-6 new players we may find it takes quite a while to bed them in.

    Nufc should have at least two players signed now and two more by the weekend but no not this club I wouldn’t be surprised if they are trying to get players over the line on the last day
    No matter who is in charge we are still a small minded club who will never challenge the best be it players not wanting to come our location or whatever

    Mund I know we shouldn’t be too picky but I’m not sure on that Barbosa, the Brazilian league is poor and that’s where most of his goals have come from.
    And also wasn’t he in Pirates of the Caribbean?

    TTB@W ARMY 😆 aye he was mate

    He played for Inter a bit, did alright but didn’t pull any trees up. He was one I always use to buy on FM years ago and was unreal but hasn’t fulfilled his potential as of today. Great finisher but bad attitude.

    I’d rather somebody else. I think no matter what happens over the window, come the end of January we will all be very happy.

    Expect Zorro

    On the Diaz Mitro debate okay they have similar stats but what I would say is:

    Mitrovic relies on chances being created as he isn’t mobile looks better in champ because teams that he plays for dominate games

    He’s slow doesn’t press and hasn’t done that great 3 times in the league

    Diaz Is younger faster and can press which I think would be key for Howe

    Carltoon, don’t I know it. 🙂

    A Dinner dance/awards night with the mafia and associates, always going to be fun.

    When you’ve watched the movies/tv shows etc. it’s just the sort of gathering you expect to see the doors locked and bullets flying everywhere! – I must have been daft accepting that invitation. 😀
