Newcastle must win race for talented West Ham youth star

Newcastle must win race for talented West Ham youth star

It’s been well documented that Newcastle need some new players in attack. 

The club has been frantically searching for players to help bolster them on the goalscoring front.

Alassane Plea was the main target for Newcastle but they eventually lost the race to Borussia Monchengladbach. Benitez has also been looking for a new winger and a creative player to help out and according to The Mirror, the club are targeting a move for West Ham youth star, Domingos Quina.

If the Magpies want the youngster, however, they will need to fight off interest from Leeds and now Barcelona.

The Breakdown

The 18-year-old attacker, who can play on the wing or as a number 10, is widely regarded as the best player at West Ham’s youth academy. The youngster hasn’t managed to break into the first-team and with the signings of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko, a clear pathway to the first XI might now not be possible.

The reported £600,000 a fee isn’t a massive fee but with Barcelona now interested in the player it seems that Newcastle may now be hard pushed to sign the youngster. While Barcelona may have the prestige, Newcastle could well offer him the chance to stay in a very competitive league and also the instant chance to play first-team football.

It may take a lot of convincing but it’s deal that the Magpies could well benefit from. He’ll be a contributor instantly in the first-team and in the long run, he could command a huge transfer fee.
