Newcastle: Magpies ready to bid for Jack Harrison, Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes

Newcastle: Magpies ready to bid for Jack Harrison, Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are ready to bid for Premier League wingers Jack Harrison, Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes, according to The Northern Echo journalist Scott Wilson.

The Lowdown: Howe wants a new winger

Eddie Howe has set his sights on signing a winger before the transfer window closes later this summer as Newcastle look to bolster their squad options ahead of a push for European football.

Bayer Leverkusen attacker Moussa Diaby has been heavily linked with a move to St James’ Park, but the Bundesliga club’s £60m price tag has proven too much for the Tyneside outfit, forcing them to look elsewhere.

It is reported that the Magpies are hoping to strike a deal for a wide player with a fee around the £25m mark.

The Latest: Wilson’s transfer update

Wilson has shared the latest news on Newcastle’s pursuit of a fresh wide-man for Howe’s squad in a report for The Northern Echo, outlining one significant obstacle that PIF will need to overcome.

Taking to Twitter in sharing a corresponding article, the reliable journalist claimed: “TRANSFER LATEST: #NUFC ready to bid for three different Premier League targets – Jack Harrison, Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes – but none currently fall within their price range and, at this stage, their respective clubs are in no mood to budge…”

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

The Verdict: Unlikely…

Whilst all three players would appear to be useful additions to the Magpies’ ranks, the proposed transfer fees could force Dan Ashworth to look elsewhere.

With Everton’s stance being that Gordon is not for sale and Leicester valuing Barnes at £50m, this would seem to make Leeds winger Harrison the most attainable target.

Should Newcastle sign Harrison?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, considering Jesse Marsch’s £35m valuation of the ex-Manchester City forward, this deal will also require lengthy negotiations to get over the line.

Therefore, whilst those could be good signings for Newcastle, a deal may prove to be too difficult to execute, so the Toon should have other targets in mind before it is too late to bring anyone else in.
