Jefferson Montero’s recent showing for Ecuador could interest the likes of Newcastle United to step up a potential bid to sign the left winger. Apart from on the flanks, he can even move further up and play a deep lying forward role in order to aid his scoring chances.
The 24-year-old currently plays for Monarcas Morelia in Mexico, appearing in 22 matches and netting six with an additional five assist. If he can continue his World Cup form in the Premier League, he could become a starting player under Pardew as he bids to gain back the club’s supporters. The Magpies should consider making an offer of around £2.9 million, but could see his value rise depending on his performance in Brazil.
