Newcastle United fall behind in the race to sign star attacker

Ross McCormack

Norwich City have overtaken Newcastle United in the race to sign Ross McCormack, according to reports from Team Talk.

Despite splashing the cash to secure the services of Dwight Gayle this summer, Newcastle United have continually been linked with a move for another attacker and names such as Dimitar Berbatov, Scott Sinclair and Ross McCormack have been mentioned as targets for the Magpies.

McCormack in particular, has been viewed as a realistic target for Newcastle as he is desperate for a move away from current club Fulham this summer and the fee of around £13 million has been set as the asking price for the Scottish international.

However, it seems like Newcastle will be missing out on the signing of McCormack as Team Talk have gone on to reveal that Norwich City have moved ahead of the Magpies in the race to sign the 29-year-old.

Missing out on McCormack will not be a complete disaster though as Newcastle already possess the likes of Gayle, Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Adam Armstrong in their ranks, and manager Rafael Benitez will probably not be too disappointed.
