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