Former Premier League striker Kevin Phillips has actually prompted Newcastle to sign Erling Haaland this summer.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is unquestionably the very best young forward in the game today and Phillips believes he would be the perfect addition to the Newcastle side.
The 19- year-old Norwegian forward has actually scored 40 goals currently this season.
The Magpies have actually been linked with PSG’s Edinson Cavani however Phillips chooses Haaland who will include a little bit of durability.
He stated to Football Expert: “If you are rebuilding a side you want a player that is going to be there for five or six years. If Newcastle are serious and they have mega-cash why not be ambitious and put a bid in for somebody like a Haaland? That would be a proper statement. I am not sure if the lad would want to go there but it would be a statement of intent. Cavani would be short-term, a season. I would prefer for them to go for someone with a bit of longevity.”
Cavani would just be a short term repair for Newcastle.
While Phillips has a legitimate point, signing somebody like Haaland would be very hard for a club like Newcastle.
If Haaland was to move on from Dortmund, he would be looking to make an action up and sign up with a club that is difficult for the leading honours.
Newcastle may have a great deal of money when the takeover goes through, however they are still not an appealing project for players of Haaland’s calibre.
Additionally, the lack of European football will avoid them from signing top quality players.
It will be fascinating to see who they move for thissummer Newcastle are in desperate need of a goalscorer and they have actually been linked with the likes of Alfredo Morelos.
