The Newcastle United fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that a striker could be set to leave the club.
A report on IBT Times UK suggests that Ayoze Perez is considering his future at the North East club following their relegation to the Championship last season.
It is reported that the reason for Perez’s to consider his future is interest from Premier League duo West Ham United and Everton who want the forward at their respective clubs for next season.
West Ham are on the lookout for more forward options ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium for next season and Perez’s pace and eye for goal has given Slaven Bilic the encouragement to become interested.
As for Everton they look as though they will need reinforcements at the top end of the field with Romelu Lukaku, Gerard Deulofeu, and Kevin Mirallas’s futures all up in the air following Roberto Martinez’s dismissal as manager.
Our landlord in The Tavern believes that Perez would be an ideal player for both Everton and West Ham and the player would add something different going forward for both clubs.
