Sigthorsson on Carr’s hitlist?

The Iceman on Toon's hitlist?
Newcastle have been linked with another name today, although admittedly it’s quite a mouthful of a name!

Icelandic striker, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson is apparently being watched by Mr. Ben as he runs the rule over potential summer transfer targets. I would hope that a striker is at the top of the list as that, in my opinion, is the position where we are really weak at the minute. With no disrespect intended, Shola Ameobi, Peter Lovenkrands and Shefki Kuqi are not long term answers to our striking problems!

At just 21 years old, Sigthorsson is at the right age for us to be looking. The AZ Alkmaar forward has already scored 14 goals this season including a five goal haul against Venlo in one match earlier on in the season, although, to be fair, that alone doesn’t necessarily mean that we are definitely in for him.

Enough babbling though as I’ve found this 15 minute video of the Icelandic international in action. See what you think.

I know it’s folly to judge a player from a Youtube clip, unless you happen to be Dennis Wise of course, but it’s the only real insight we are likely to get on the player. He looks alright to me. No world beater but better than what we have currently.

What do you think?
