Newcastle United: Thorgan Hazard on ‘shortlist’

Newcastle United: Thorgan Hazard on ‘shortlist’ -Newcastle United News

Thorgan Hazard is reportedly on the ‘shortlist’ of Newcastle United this summer.

The Lowdown: What’s next?

It has been reported that the St. James’ Park outfit have now agreed a deal with Lille to sign central defender Sven Botman.

He will likely become their third signing of the summer after Matt Targett and Nick Pope, meaning that they can now focus further up the pitch, where the likes of Moussa Diaby and Hazard are thought to be targets.

The Latest: Hazard update

Taking to Twitter, journalist Patrick Berger of SPORT1 has revealed that Hazard is on the North East club’s ‘shortlist’, although he is only thought to be a ‘Plan B’ option:

“#BVB winger Thorgan Hazard is on Newcastle United‘s shortlist. He is in talks with some Prem clubs, as reported three months ago. But the Belgian is only Plan B at #NUFC. There is no concrete offer so far. Dortmund would sell him this summer for around €15m.”

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

The Verdict: Good squad option

€15m (£12.9m) is not much money in today’s market for a player of the experience and quality of Hazard, and so he could be a worthy squad option for Eddie Howe.

Of course, the Toon Army will know his brother Eden Hazard well from his time at Chelsea, and the now Real Madrid star has even claimed that Thorgan is ‘better‘ than he is.

Should Newcastle sign Thorgan Hazard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

That is such a big compliment from a player who won two Premier League titles and was Chelsea’s Player of the Year in the 2014/15 season, and has since gone on to win the La Liga title twice and the UEFA Champions League with Madrid (Transfermarkt).

Dubbed a coach’s ‘blessing‘ by his former manager Marco Rose, the Borussia Dortmund winger could be a really shrewd signing by the Magpies.
