Newcastle fans in the Football Transfer Tavern don’t have a clue where this transfer story has come from after their striker has been linked with a move to Barcelona.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Catalan giants are targeting Ayoze Perez to become an understudy to their deadly trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.
Barca have reportedly sent out scouts to monitor the 22-year-old and the European giants have supposedly contacted the Magpies over a possible transfer this summer.
At the moment Sandro and Munir El Haddadi are the strikers in reserve at the Nou Camp but they are looking to leave Barca in search for more regular first-team action.
Which has forced the club to look for replacements who would be willing to spend the majority of the season on the bench.
If Barcelona make a formal offer, it would give Perez a very tough decision to make!
Do you stay at St James’ Park and continue playing first-team football and continue to gain experience at a young age? or do you opt for the glamorous life, with some of the best players in the world, knowing you’re hardly going to play?
