As they compete with Manchester United, Newcastle makes touch with the star’s £130 million agent.
Newcastle United is still undergoing a transformation, and Eddie Howe and his coaching staff are working to elevate the Magpies.
The North East heavyweights have improved greatly since being taken over from the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), and they will now have to contend with the Champions League campaign in addition to domestic competitions.
Although they are currently moving in the right route, it is quite obvious that they are still lacking a few players to genuinely contend for trophies. This summer may provide Howe the chance to make up for that.
One position they might use filling is at center-forward because Callum Wilson is growing older, and everyone is aware of how much the St. James’ Park crowd enjoys their number nines.
Imagine the England captain wearing the renowned black and white stripes, but Daniel Levy is unlikely to consent to transfer Harry Kane to a Premier League opponent.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli, though, is a very different story.
Newcastle has reportedly gotten in touch with the player’s agency to discuss a potential £130 million transfer to the north east, according to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Mirror Sport).
According to the source, Man United is also interested in the player, but the Red Devils are also likely to pass on Kane for the same reasons.
It seems like the appropriate time for Osimhen to contemplate another adventure now that Luciano Spalletti has stated that he is leaving Napoli on the back of their first Scudetto in three decades, but should he go for the illustrious history of Man United or the obvious riches of Newcastle?
