Newcastle United: PIF eyeing Kamaldeen Sulemana

Newcastle United: PIF eyeing Kamaldeen Sulemana -Newcastle United News

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) are reportedly now eyeing up Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana for Newcastle United.

The Lowdown: High praise

Sulemana is a player who has received high praise in the past, with new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag dubbing him ‘technically skilled’ with ‘a lot of speed’ (Football Ghana).

Football talent scout Jacek Kulig has labelled him as an ‘enormous talent’, while his former coach at FC Nordsjaelland, Flemming Pedersen, hailed him as an ‘extraordinary’ winger who is ‘even faster’ than PSG and Brazil superstar Neymar.

With all those plaudits, the 20-year-old, now at Rennes in Ligue 1, is sure to attract some interest as the transfer window goes on.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per French news outlet L’Equipe, PIF are now eyeing a potential move for Sulemana before the window closes.

They have been linked with the likes of Leeds United’s Jack Harrison and Chelsea’s Timo Werner, so it is clear that they would like to bring a new wide player in for Eddie Howe, and the Ghanaian starlet is next up on the list.

The Verdict: Cheaper alternative

Given that they would not be buying directly from a Premier League rival, Sulemana could be seen as a cheaper alternative to the likes of Harrison and Werner.

Should Newcastle sign Sulemana?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Similar in playing style to tricksters like Wilfried Zaha and the Magpies’ own Allan Saint-Maximin (FBref), the Ghana international is capable of playing anywhere across the front line, and his five goals and two assists last season (Transfermarkt) show that he can be dangerous in the final third.

Nonetheless, with him and Saint-Maximin either side of Callum Wilson, the Tynesiders could form a truly scary trio up top.
