Serbian International Back On Newcastle’s Radar As Moves For Other Targets Fizzle – Report



Newcastle jetted off to Saudi Arabia this morning for a week of training in the sun. However, the work to strengthen the squad continues despite Amanda Staveley joining the players and coaching staff on the trip to Jeddah.

The Mail is reporting that a transfer meeting was held today in which a number of targets were discussed. In the report, Craig Hope goes through a list of 14 players Newcastle could target under differing scenarios.

The area that Newcastle are likely to zero in on primarily is at center-back. There was talk of Eddie Howe bringing in two central defenders in this window with the top targets being Lille’s Sven Botman and Sevilla’s Diego Carlos.

The move for Botman fizzled early in the window with Lille’s reluctance to sell the 22-year-old this month. Despite both Diego Carlos and his representatives pushing Sevilla for a move to Newcastle, that appears to be headed for the same fate.


Hope names other defensive targets that could come into play should Newcastle pull out of the Carlos sweepstakes. They are Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic and Burnley’s James Tarkowski, who helped shut Arsenal down today in a 0-0 draw.

The move for Tarkowski seems a non-starter at this point. There is little chance Burnley approve a deal to a relegation rival, especially the one who activated the release clause of their top striker Chris Wood a few weeks ago.

Milenkovic would be a very popular signing and has resurfaced as a target recently. Hope believes the Serbian international would command a fee of around £32m, which is high for someone not rated by the club as a top target like Botman or Carlos.

However, the winter window is brutal for buying clubs. Milenkovic, at just 24 years old, has his best years in front of him. He has a wealth of experience with over 150 appearances in Italy and seems like a great fit for The Premier League.

Who Was Newcastle's Man Of The Match In Massive Win At Leeds?

    Anyway, great though the win was yesterday, if they had put the same amount of effort in last week we would be out the bottom 3 and on Everton’s shoulder. Regardless of what we think about individual players, we need ones who are more consistent than a good game every now and then. Hopefully we’ll get some in the next week.

    Scythe,

    Aye, that possible 6 points could see Burnley 2 points ahead of Norwich and right in the mix, can’t have that!

    I like Dyche, respect his loyalty to Burnley, but he’s too good for them and needs to move on. So Burnley need to go.

    Knew Everton fans were knackers, but didn’t realise how bad till this season so they need to go. Would feel sorry for big Duncan if they do go though.

    Regarding Everton it’s a crazy world where Tafe gets sacked after 7 months of failure into 3 year contract and perhaps cops 15 million and the number 2 cops the xxxx
    Sack the board? Easier said than done toffees. What a sad bunch you are.
    We put up with 14 years of desperation and after your board spends half a billion you want them sacked? What about the managers and dofs who bought the players
    So the board sacks themselves and who will put money into the club? Yourselves? Nooo Clueless idiots

    Interesting post on Sven Batman’s instagram:
    “You need to be around people who fit your future, not your history!”

    Could just be a load of waffle and mean nothing….and this post will slide, like many others, into a dark abyss 🙂 It could mean he is still looking to move though?? One of the signing unveilings in Saudi this week?? Looking forward to getting more quality signings in either way

    She died at the end of May and the coroners report was released in August and the BBC reported it. Not eight months later. Please just stop all this nonsense.

    Mund,
    I thought he’d answer straight away, I found the coroners report before he did, I knew it wasn’t eight months. He’s peddling lies and misinformation and that was the proof of it. I don’t normally get involved with it but she was a friend of my Mrs, and wtf has it got to do with you hypocrite.

    Such a horrible loss, but was sure it was said straight away it was a reaction to the jab. Even her husband said so, but still advised people to get it. So awful that people have died because of it, but when add up the numbers, very small minority to those who have been helped, then multiply that by every country, just so awful to loose some though

    Could you please tell us what truth is? Please define it and justify your reasoning.

    As far as I know, truth is either inescapable fact or belief in opinions.

    Many great minds, great philosophers, have thought about it over thousands of years so please, take as long as you need before coming back with your response.

    Better still, let’s just leave it eh?

    We’ll be safe as long as our owners don’t think this squad has suddenly turned a corner and is about to go on a winning run, without at least 2/3 quality additions this week.

    Seeing your post reminded me to say that the abbotoir you worked at was probably under the Byker bridges which bridged the village in the Ouseburn valley. One of bridges carried a road and the other, rail lines.

    No, it was very close to the cattle market and just up from the Quayside, exact location escapes my memory but I’m sure it wasn’t Byker way.

    It was only pigs that were slaughtered there.
