Newcastle line up move for another exciting Frenchman incase Ekitike deal collapses – Report

According to Mark Douglas, Newcastle could make a summer move for Nice striker Amine Gouiri if they continue to be messed about by Hugo Ekitike’s agent.

The club are still believed to be in talks with Ekitike’s representatives, however Douglas’ latest piece for iNews reveals that alternatives are now being sourced by our recruitment team.

One potential ‘plan B’ appears to be Gouiri – a 22-year-old forward who bagged 12 goals and 10 assists in all competitions for Nice last season.

Douglas reports that the former Lyon striker – who can play out wide or up top – has been watched closely by Toon scouts and fits the ‘age profile’ identified by the club.

Gouiri also boasts an impressive record at international level, bagging an incredible 46 goals in 64 appearances in France’s youth set up; where he has represented his country at every age group from U16 to U21.

The same report states that Chelsea’s Armando Broja is another player on our radar should we walk away from Ekitike, although it’s said intense interest from West Ham could ‘complicate matters’ on that front.

  1. Not a good market for the Toon, too many hustlers attempting to take advantage of The
    Toon and their petro dollars. possibly enough to investigate a group of formerly wealthy clubs, who’s teams play outside the EPL and for the most part are becoming the Makims and Boro. and where we would be had we not come under the economic blanket of the Saudi’s Petro-dollar kingdom.
    About time things that are manufactured usually travel in opposite directions, it should more or less help the National economy, being “The UK” & “Saudi” are both allied and
    one depends on the other for aircraft, and small arms , to boot is about to use it’s multi billion amount of dollars to re-nvent the country, should be interesting to be in on the panel that draws up the early stages the re-building and see it as intended finally.
    As for football, I believe it’s more about meeting others standings than any local agenda.
    though I guess we could use a bit bigger stadium, if we want to attract more of a clientele.
