Newcastle United: Gini Wijnaldum and Donny van de Beek ‘discussed’

Newcastle United: Gini Wijnaldum and Donny van de Beek ‘discussed’ -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Luke Edwards has namedropped two potential signings now being ‘discussed’ by Newcastle United in Gini Wijnaldum and Donny van de Beek.

The Lowdown: Two in already

The St. James’ Park faithful have already welcomed both Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood through the door in the January transfer window so far, and they certainly do not seem to be stopping there.

Gleison Bremer and Hugo Ekitike are just two players that have been named as potential next arrivals in the centre-back and striker department respectively, and now it looks like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium want to strengthen the midfield as well.

The Latest: Two more to follow?

As per Edwards, both Wijnaldum and van de Beek are now being ‘discussed’ as potential loan signings, however, it may be complicated to attract them away from PSG and Manchester United respectively:

“Heard both Wijnaldum and van de Beek have been discussed as possible loan signings for #nufc but former has lots of options IF he decides to leave PSG.

“Latter is trapped at Manchester United against his will. Both seem unobtainable but never say never is my advice #freedonny.”

The Verdict: Either… or both!

Of course, both have the experience of playing in the Premier League, with van de Beek currently at United and Wijnaldum having played for Liverpool as well as the Magpies.

Only the biggest Newcastle fans will get 100% on our 2021/22 season quiz. First up, who scored the Magpies' first goal?

The latter especially did very well in his only season in the North East, scoring 11 goals and making a further five assists from midfield, as he played in every single match of their 2015/16 top-flight campaign (Transfermarkt).

Unfortunately, the Tyneside outfit were relegated at the end of the term, prompting Wijnaldum to move to Anfield, but he would certainly be a popular addition among the Toon Army.

Should Newcastle have sold Wijnaldum to Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Van de Beek has struggled for game time at Old Trafford, but he showed what he is capable of at Ajax, scoring 41 times and supplying 34 assists in 175 matches (Transfermarkt).

Nonetheless, both would add an extra threat in the middle of the park, and so Eddie Howe’s side should try and get at least one in as soon as possible.
