Newcastle United: Wesley Fofana offer expected after contacting his entourage -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are now reportedly expected to make a transfer offer for Wesley Fofana after contacting his entourage.

The Lowdown: Big names linked

It was always going to be inevitable that the St. James’ Park faithful were going to be linked with some big names in the world of football after the takeover by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium was completed.

Should Newcastle sign Fofana?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Among those names in recent days are the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Lorenzo Insigne, as it seems as if the new owners would like to strengthen in all areas of the pitch.

The Latest: Fofana contact

As per RMC Sport, the North East club have now come into contact with Fofana’s entourage ahead of a potential move, and the Leicester City central defender is now becoming a ‘priority’ for them.

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

A concrete offer is expected to be made for him ‘in the coming weeks’, once he recovers from injury.

The Verdict: Sign

Even though Fofana is injured at the moment, the new owners should still be looking to bring him to Tyneside at all costs.

Currently rated at £36m by Transfermarkt, the 6 foot 3 beast was instrumental in firing the Foxes into fifth spot in the Premier League table once more last season, winning no fewer than 6.5 of his duels per game, while also averaging 3.3 clearances, 2.2 interceptions and 1.8 tackles per match (Sofascore).

Brendan Rodgers, who has been strongly linked with replacing Steve Bruce himself, dubbed him as ‘colossal’ back in November.

Nonetheless, he would certainly be the type of statement signing that the Magpies need to kick off the new era.
