Newcastle eye loan move for £47m forward, two deals stall & interest denied – The Telegraph

The Telegraph have released a fresh update on the transfer front, revealing one Chelsea player who’s emerged as a potential option and another who now looks unlikely to arrive at St James’ Park.

According to Luke Edwards, the club are ‘keeping a close eye’ on Timo Werner’s situation at Stamford Bridge.

It’s hoped the German international may be allowed to leave on loan, but the report insists that we’d need the Blues to pay a big chunk of his current wages – believed to be well over £200,000-per-week – to make the move happen.

Staying at Chelsea, The Telegraph state that we’ve ‘cooled’ our interest in Armando Broja after being informed the 20-year-old striker would only arrive on loan if he was guaranteed to be our first-choice striker. This is understandable in his search for game-time, but it seems we prefer to bring in someone who’ll compete with Callum Wilson.

Jack Harrison’s potential move to St James’ Park is another that’s stalled, as Leeds are yet to respond to enquiries about his availability or price, while Edwards also rubbished talks of a move for Julian Draxler – the PSG attacker who was linked on Sunday night by French outlet Le10 Sport.

So, it seems our transfer frustration has dragged into another week in our search for two new attackers, but you can be certain our Ashworth, Howe and the remainder of our recruitment team are working around the clock to get the right deals done.

  3. Jonboy, if we didn’t spend another penny until next season they’re still nothing like Ashley, if Ashley was here, we’d have the same team as we had last season minus maxi, Wilson amd willock and We’d be fearing a dismal season in the championship and hoping we could finish above Sunderland. This new ownership has signed, Burn, Guimarães, Taggart, Botman, Pope, Tripper & Wood. That’s 7 players who all improved the sqaud amd the 1st team. For the first season in a long time we are not going into it expecting to be in a relegation dogfight. We’ve progressed so far already!
