Newcastle United: Dean Jones drops ‘big’ summer transfer claim

Newcastle United: Dean Jones drops ‘big’ summer transfer claim -Newcastle United News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has now dropped a ‘big’ Newcastle United claim involving the summer window.

The Lowdown: Striker wanted

The St. James’ Park faithful have been linked with a number of big-name strikers ahead of the summer, including the likes of Paulo Dybala and Darwin Nunez.

It was reported that their move for Reims striker Hugo Ekitike in the January transfer window was called off after a £33m bid was accepted, so he is another one that the North East club could look to revisit.

The Latest: ‘Big’ signing?

Speaking to The Transfer Tavern, when asked if the Tyneside outfit will sign Ekitike in the summer, Jones shared that the Toon Army should be ‘optimistic’ that they will sign a ‘big’ striker as well as him:

“But I think they should also be optimistic that this won’t be the only signing they make. I think they’ll really look at that frontline. I think somebody will be moved on. And I think another gap will open up for a big man to come in.”

Should Newcastle sign Ekitike?





The Verdict: Exciting

The fact that the Magpies could sign two new strikers, and one of them being the highly-rated Ekitike, is surely exciting.

Callum Wilson has been suffering from constant injury problems throughout the season, while Chris Wood has only managed to score two goals since arriving from Burnley in January.

Thus, they could do with some more firepower up top to help really kickstart the long-term project.

Nonetheless, they should have the budget to do it, given that they are backed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium’s Public Investment Fund (PIF).
