Newcastle United: Aaron Stokes stunned by Moussa Diaby transfer news

Newcastle United: Aaron Stokes stunned by Moussa Diaby transfer news -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United journalist Aaron Stokes has been left stunned as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) eye up a move for Moussa Diaby.

The Lowdown: On the radar

As per Sky Sports journalist Pete Graves, the 22-year-old is on the Magpies’ ‘radar’ ahead of a potential move to St James’ Park this summer.

However, PIF have an ‘extensive’ list of attacking targets, and it is unclear where the Bayer Leverkusen winger falls on that.

The Latest: Stokes stunned

Taking to Twitter, Stokes was left stunned by the prospect of Diaby moving to Newcastle, claiming that the Frenchman would be a ‘marquee’ signing and that the Tynesiders would be hitting the ‘jackpot’ if they sign him.

The Chronicle reporter tweeted: “When it comes to marquee signings, #NUFC would be hitting jackpot with Moussa Diaby. 31 G/A in 42 games last season, electrifying pace, good with both feet + fearless on the ball. A remarkable deal if they persuade Bayer to sell + the player to join.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Sign him

Of course, a player of Diaby’s quality would likely not come cheap, but he could be the marquee signing to take Eddie Howe’s team to the next level.

Should Newcastle sign Diaby?

Yes

Yes

No

No

France Football magazine journalist Christophe Larcher has suggested that the 22-year-old is even better than Allan Saint-Maximin, who was yet again one of Newcastle’s key players last season, ranking as their second-best performer in the Premier League with five goals, five assists and six man-of-the-match awards to his name (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, Diaby is three years younger than the 25-year-old, so his potential is quite riveting to think about if you are a Newcastle supporter.
