Newcastle United are reportedly in a race with a number of clubs in the Premier League to sign Angelo Fulgini in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Fulgini impresses
Fulgini has come off the back of a very impressive individual 2020/21 season with Angers in France, scoring no fewer than 10 goals and making a further four assists in 36 games in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt).
Should Newcastle sign Fulgini?
He also showed his added ability to play in a wide number of different positions, which would be very useful to have in Steve Bruce’s squad.
The Latest: Fulgini monitored
As per The Daily Mail, Fulgini is being ‘monitored’ by the St. James’ Park faithful as well as Crystal Palace, while he has also been previously linked to both Everton and Southampton.
Rated at £12m, he is described in the piece as a ‘talented’ player while also ‘versatile, creative, skilful’ and a ‘set-piece specialist’.
The Verdict: Sign
Fulgini sounds like a player who could really benefit the North East club in terms of his creativity, which players like Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson should be able to thrive off of.
£12m could turn out to be a real bargain too, as at just 24 years of age, he certainly still has plenty of time to improve further and develop into a top player.
Nonetheless, the Toon Army will be desperate for a new face to come into the door, and so we suspect Fulgini would be welcomed with open arms.
