Newcastle United man Yoshinori Muto is attracting transfer interest from both the Bundesliga and La Liga, according to The Chronicle.
As per the outlet, the representatives of the Japanese international have been told to find him a new club before the current transfer window officially shuts.
Should Newcastle sell Muto?
Muto has also been absent from pre-season training in what is another sign that the Tyneside club want him out of St. James’ Park as soon as possible.
Indeed, the 28-year old’s time in the North East was fairly limited in the 2019/20 season, as the £4.95 million-valued man managed to play in a mere 10 matches in all competitions, scoring just a single goal, and none in the Premier League (via Transfermarkt).
In fact, Muto has been limited to just 28 games in all competitions over the last two campaigns, in which he has only managed to score twice (per the website).
Therefore it may be time for the striker to move onto a team in where he will play more regular first-team football as it looks like his future at the Toon is very limited right at this particular moment in time.
The question is who will take Muto on, who has previously been described as a ‘moody diva’ by Georg Holzner, the ex-Mainz correspondent for German magazine ‘Kicker’, with the respect to how about he goes his business.
Indeed, the forward impressed while at Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp’s former side, with 23 goals and a further 11 assists in 72 appearances in all competitions over three consecutive terms, according to Transfermarkt.
However, it seems as if Muto has no future at NUFC, and so Steve Bruce should look to get as big of a transfer fee as possible if they wish to sell him.
Geordies, should Muto be sold in this window? Comment below!
