Fabrizio Romano has now revealed the latest on rumoured ‘approaches’ from Newcastle United for both Mauro Icardi and Aaron Ramsey.
The Lowdown: Rumours circling
Who should Newcastle sign?
There have even been reports of contact being made with the latter ahead of a potential move from Juventus in the January transfer window.
The Latest: Romano update
Writing on his official Twitter page, Romano has now revealed that their have been ‘no approaches’ from the new owners for Icardi or Ramsey ‘as things stand right now’.
The Italian journalist and transfer expert also revealed that Icardi is ‘not planning’ on leaving PSG over the next few months, while Ramsey will ‘decide on his future’ in December or January.
The Verdict: Sign both!
Signing both Icardi and Ramsey would certainly be a statement from the new owners that they mean business.
Dubbed as a ‘world-class’ player on his day by Wales teammate Joe Allen after a narrow 1-0 defeat away at eventual champions Italy during Euro 2020, Ramsey of course has played in the Premier League before with Arsenal and has an eye for a goal from midfield, with no fewer than 91 in total in his senior career for both club and country combined so far.
Icardi is a natural goalscorer himself, with 172 senior strikes to his name for both club and country, and would certainly ease the burden off of Callum Wilson.
Nonetheless, their experience of playing at the highest level would certainly elevate the quality in the dressing room.
