According to reports from Sky Sports, Newcastle United are on the verge of signing Stoke City forward Joselu in a £5million deal.
They’re said to have already agreed personal terms with the Spaniard, who has completed a medical ahead of his expected move to St. James’ Park.
The Magpies are clearly in need of more options, particularly in attack, if they’re to comfortably stave off the threat of relegation this season.
But is Joselu the right man for the job? The 27-year-old’s only full season at the Bet365 Stadium produced just four league goals, whilst he managed five in 20 appearances on loan at Deportivo last term.
At first glance, the former Real Madrid man doesn’t particularly improve on what Newcastle already have, namely last season’s top scorer Dwight Gayle and target man Aleksandar Mitrovic.
So, Newcastle fans, do you view Joselu as a smart signing or a flop in the making? Let us know by voting below…
