Newcastle United: Magpies ‘in pole’ to sign Ousmane Dembele

Newcastle United: Magpies ‘in pole’ to sign Ousmane Dembele -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

A report has revealed that Newcastle United are now ‘in pole’ to sign Ousmane Dembele.

The Lowdown: More developments

Dembele has been linked with a move to St James’ Park ever since the takeover by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium was completed.

Should Newcastle sign Dembele?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Sport reported last month that his camp have initiated talks with the Tyneside club over a potential move, while ABC (via Sport Witness) claimed that Dembele ‘has an offer on the table’ from the Magpies, so it seems as if the new owners are serious about securing his signature.

The Latest: Newcastle ‘in pole’

As per a ‘Top Secret’ report from Mundo Deportivo (via Sport Witness), Newcastle are now ‘in pole position’ to sign Dembele and are ‘pushing very hard’ for the Barcelona winger.

His current contract at the Catalan giants expires in 2022, and they want to tie him down to a new deal, but it does not look likely at this stage.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Joelinton...

They have ‘received an astronomical proposal’ from the Magpies worth €15m (£12.7m) per season and a signing-on bonus of €15m (£12.7m), and his agent would also get a generous commission.

Nonetheless, it is now up to Barca over whether they cash in during the January transfer window or risk losing him for free in the summer.

The Verdict: Rare opportunity

Signing Dembele, potentially for free, presents the Magpies with a rare opportunity to bring in a truly quality player on his day.

In previous years, he helped France to win the World Cup (Transfermarkt), while Lionel Messi once dubbed him ‘frightening’ and a ‘phenomenon’ when they were teammates at the Nou Camp.

Dembele has tailored off a bit since then, mainly due to persistent injuries, but he still has 30 goals and 22 assists for Barcelona (Transfermarkt), and at 24 years of age, there is every chance that he will only get better.
