Newcastle United: Pete O’Rourke drops Noni Madueke transfer claim

Newcastle United: Pete O’Rourke drops Noni Madueke transfer claim -Newcastle United News

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has now dropped a Newcastle United transfer claim on Noni Madueke.

The Lowdown: Winger wanted

As per 90min, the Magpies are prepared to break their transfer record in order to bring Moussa Diaby to St James’ Park and have been scouting many winger options.

The outlet also reported of Newcastle’s interest in PSV Eindhoven attacker Madueke, and it is unclear which player they will try to go for at this stage.

The Latest: O’Rourke claim

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke has claimed that the ‘exciting’ Madueke would likely be ‘cheaper’ than Diaby, and maybe ‘more attainable right now’ for Eddie Howe’s side.

The reporter said of the PSV winger: “I think he’d probably be cheaper than Moussa Diaby and maybe more attainable right now. He’s an exciting player, Noni Manueke, whose had a number of top Premier League clubs look at him in the past.

“Obviously, he came through at Tottenham before making the move to PSV, and he’s done quite well out in Holland as well. So, he’s an exciting player who can score goals and provide goals, and I think he’d be a good alternative if Leverkusen aren’t willing to sell Diaby.”

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

The Verdict: Great alternative

Madueke unfortunately suffered from injury problems last season, but still managed to score nine goals and supply a further six assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Comparing his statistics in the Eredivisie to Diaby in the Bundesliga, the England under-21 international actually averaged more shots and dribbles per game and had a higher pass success rate than the Frenchman, suggesting that he could be an ideal alternative.

Should Newcastle sign Madueke?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Madueke is three years younger, too, so potentially signing him for a cheaper price than Diaby would represent a great piece of business from the Tynesiders.

Howe will surely want to get another signing or two into St James’ Park before the new season starts, with both players seemingly on his radar.
