Chelsea Winger Could Be Next On Newcastle’s Transfer Agenda



Stamford Bridge has been the source of a steady supply of transfer links for Newcastle United. The club have held preliminary talks on two targets with a loan proposal recently being registered for Timo Werner.

Before the focus switched to Werner, striker Armando Broja had been in the headlines for weeks as an alternative to Hugo Ekitike. Thomas Tuchel’s reluctance to part with the young Albanian international resulted in the Magpies moving onto other targets.

The Mirror is reporting that Newcastle may now move on from Werner as interest from his former-club RB Leipzig heats up. The Mirror backs claims that Leipzig have pushed ahead to bring the 26-year-old back to Red Bull Arena; a move Werner could prefer.

The Mirror is reporting that Newcastle may move for yet another Blue if Werner proves unattainable. Callum Hudson-Odoi’s name could be next on the negotiating table with the 21-year-old having hit the radar earlier this summer.

Hudson-Odoi has failed to make an impact under Thomas Tuchel. That is unlikely to change with the breadth of attacking options the Blues boss has at his disposal. The winger is entering the final two years of his contract with his career at a crossroads.

Newcastle are currently pondering a third bid for James Maddison with a decision on Werner’s future still unclear. Hudson-Odoi would cost a significant fee but the Magpies would push for a structured deal that could be heavy on add-ons and bonuses.

    9 subs, any 5 to be used.

    We need depth in the squad to rub shoulders with the big boys.

    I think we’re making inroads.

    Any movement on squad size or is it just teams with better quality bench have an advantage, again?

    Dubravka between the sticks, Botman alongside Schar, Longstaff in for Shelvey, Miggy starting too. The rest pick themselves. 9 decent subs to call on. 3-1 home win to kickstart the campaign.

    Hudson-Odoi seems to play decent and then get injured or goes off form

    He’s still young but how hungry is he? He’s been on 80 to 100k a week since he was 19 kind of reminds me of Martial where at times he just doesn’t look bothered He’s getting paid either way

    Gotta say, 5 subs out of a possible 9 is a great move, maybe not so much for the weaker sides, but great for the quality of the product.

    I also hope if we are seriously in for Maddison that we are already aware of his wage demands

    Don’t turn round and be shocked that a guy worth 60 million who is already on 100k a week wants wages of 150 to 200k a week to come here!!!

    Absolutely agree that the new owners have given our club a new lease of life and hope and optimism for the future that we’ve been starved of for years. Having hope and optimism for the future doesn’t mean we can’t question things along the way though and it doesn’t mean that everything they do is going to be right, they are going to make mistakes along the way.

    9!! for Christ sake, they will take up half a stand. but agree with you on squad strengthening mate. The extra subs will allow us to give young Anderson time to develop into the player I hope he will become.

    I am inclined to agree with you and will be incredibly disappointed if we don’t get him in. To some, that somehow means that I am not fully behind the manager, owners and players but it is what it is.

    Think Anderson will make the 18, in Jonjo’s absence, but one out of Lascelles, Burn, Dummet and Murphy will miss out, which is gonna sting.

    Good shout on Anderson, if he’s not going out on loan he needs to be a serious option and get time on the pitch.

    Essex asked earlier who voted for a loss on Saturday.
    I’ll stick my hand up and say I was one of them. I think some people are underestimating our opponents and their manager. They made alot of Premier league teams look stupid in the F A Cup last season and even with all the signings won’t be a roll over and I actually think this makes them harder to play against. Really hope I’m proved wrong but it’s just my opinion, what little it counts for.

    No I just think we want the best and probably quickly. I was 14 when we won the fairs Cup and didn’t miss a game along the way.
    Its a long time ago and I’d like to see us win something again while I’m still young enough to see it

    Anderson doesn’t count in the 25 squad, but would be counted in the 20 match day players if selected.

    Dummett shud miss out. He looks out of his depth. Half fit and blowing out his arse. Offers Zero going forwards. My mistake Less than zero. Would play the young kid before Dummett, looks like he’s been on the drink the night before a game. Spews up in the changes and at the side of the pitch before kick off. New contract is a weird one. Shud have offered him 5k a month max

    100%, we all want what is best for the club, even if that means questioning the decisions being made every now and then, it is all with the purpose of wanting the best for the club.

    It would be amazing for your journey as a Newcastle United fan to come full circle and for us to win something. Like I said earlier, if the window closed now, I think we comfortably finish top 10 and hopefully even a cup run, heck maybe even winning one of the cups, and that would count as an amazing season in my books (plus a shortcut into Europe!)

    Hudson-odoi ruptured his achilles a coue of years back, and had achilles problems last season causing him to miss 2 months. That should be a massive red flag straight away

    It’s a mad old world living the life of a Newcastle United fan.
    Born into this situation you have no choice but to ride the rollercoaster of emotions which dictate your everyday existence.
    From the depths of despair from Bruce and Pardrew to being linked with the freshest and most exciting players in just typical NUFC.
    From the brink of division 3 under ardilles to the grasp of the top division under.
    Then to the stomach turning lows of Dagleish to the soul filling highs of our own SBR.
    What is this thing that occupies our daily inner most feelings.

    Anderson – best player in a Toon shirt over the weekend followed by Almiron, Trippier and Targett
    Thought Friday nights team were up for it as to Saturdays team looked lethargic exception being Botman for some reason maybe they knew that most would be starting Saturday

    Yeah, sorry, Matchday 20, but still one of those mentioned is gonna be disappointed. Thinking either Dummett or Ritchie, and yeah maybe most likely Dummett, fitness wise and because Burn and Trippier can play left back.

    I have never liked Madison.
    His dive for the free kick he scored against us was a sign of the times when our luck was down and the likes of him would rub it in.

    Hudson should have went to Germany when he had the chance and rebuilt his career like Sanchez.

    Tuchel has tried to accommodate him even playing him wing back but there’s something missing from his game that or mentality.

    I would rather take a chance in cornet than pay big money for either Madison or Hudson and let’s not take anyone’s second best.

    Respectfully disagree with you on Cornet v Maddison. Cornet slightly improves the quality of our bench, Maddison drastically improves the quality of our team.

    Getting close to FPL deadline…

    Only 2 out of 18 are left to register the code on H2H D3…

    chancel be a fine thing
    catchy in Norway

    The late application from Gillmag been processed, and the code sent out by Neil.

    If all 3 join before the deadline, we will have 19 in D3, meaning each week one player will play against a dummy ID which will have been awarded the average FPL score for that week.
