NUFC told they can sign striker with 20 goals & 13 assists for £17m this summer – Report

According to reports in Holland, Newcastle are keeping tabs on AZ Alkmaar star Myron Boadu.

A few weeks on from our initial link to the in-form 19-year-old, Dutch outlet Voetbal have now revealed the asking price AZ Alkmaar have set ahead of inevitable summer interest, stating they’ll demand €20m (£17.4m).

Boadu has been in superb form this season, bagging 14 goals and 8 assists in 24 Eredivisie appearances – also weighing in with a brilliant 6 goals and 5 assists across their Europa League campaign.

The reported price tag sounds well within our means and the sort of deal Mike Ashley and co. would be interested in – with him ticking their boxes in terms of age, potential and cost – however it would be another big risk to sign a young and largely unproven young talent.

He’s clearly a real talent, with him being involved in 33 goals at senior level this season, scoring and assisting in Europe and gaining his first cap for the Dutch national side at 18, but I’d argue we need to sign a proven goalscorer this summer – not another risk that could go either way.

That said, he could prove to be a shrewd investment at £17m IF we brought in a more experienced striker alongside him, with his value likely to soar if he’s selected in the Netherlands’ squad for EURO 2020.
