Two star strikers contacted by ‘future owners’ of NUFC ahead of proposed takeover – Eurosport

According to Eurosport reporter Manu Lonjon, the ‘future owners’ of Newcastle United have already made inquiries over two potential signings.

Lonjon claims that they’ve sent representatives to sound out the potential availability of Napoli forward Dries Mertens and Club Brugge star Emmanuel Dennis.

This must be taken with a pinch of salt given the deal is yet to be formally announced – even if some are describing the deal as imminent given it’s said to be ‘agreed’ subject to Premier League approval.

Here’s what he’s tweeted in the last few moments:

Considering the Saudis have vast amounts of wealth and big ambitions, we best get used to reports like this linking us with high profile moves for European stars like Mertens should a deal go through.

As for Dennis, the Nigerian has been linked with a move to St James’ Park for several months now – with Lonjon claiming we held genuine interest in the 22-year-old back in January.

Intriguing claims, but best to wait until a proposed takeover is formally announced before we get too carried away with links like this!

  1. The latest comes from Fabio Santini, a journalist who was present on a TV show called Diretta Mercato on the channel 7 Gold, where he reportedly had a few things to say about what could be happening at St James’ Park in the future.

    He said, relayed by Area Napoli: “Mohammed bin Salman is about to buy Newcastle. The Saudi prince is thinking of a double hit. Max Allegri could become the new manager of the English club.

    “The manager has also already asked for the first reinforcement: Mauro Icardi, currently on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, but owned by Inter!”.
