Newcastle considering Moussa Diaby bid

A teasing Newcastle United claim has emerged on their pursuit of Moussa Diaby in the summer transfer window…

What’s the talk?

Journalist Ben Jacobs has revealed that the Magpies are now weighing up a swoop to sign the Bundesliga winger ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The reporter has also claimed that the Frenchman has not completely ruled out a switch to St. James’ Park and is willing to enter negotiations with the club.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “As I understand it, Leverkusen will only want a fee in the £40million or £45million region, not the £60million mark. But the add-ons are still going to take that deal to £60million and, as other suitors come in, Leverkusen may play hardball.

“Newcastle are seriously considering that move and the player has certainly intimated that he would be open to talking further to them.”

Supporters will be excited

This update will leave supporters excited as Diaby would be a sublime addition to the squad and one that would solve a key issue for Eddie Howe.

The winger has the quality to score and assist goals on a regular basis and Newcastle did not have anyone to do either in the Premier League last season. No Toon player managed more than eight goals or five assists in the top-flight as they spread the load across the squad.

Adding in a gem capable of hitting 10+ goals and 10+ assists would, therefore, improve the attack and give Howe’s team a huge boost at the top end of the pitch when gunning for an equalising or winning goal in a game.

In the Bundesliga last term, Diaby produced an outstanding 13 goals and 12 assists – creating 15 ‘big chances’ for his teammates in total. This came after the youngster managed four goals and ten assists in the previous campaign, which shows that he has progressed with more experience.

How many 2021/22 Premier League goals did Newcastle score?

The 22-year-old is an exceptional young forward who has shown that he has the quality to perform to a high level in the here and now whilst also holding the potential to improve further in the future. This is why he would be a sensational signing for the Toon as he would be a huge player for the club in their short and long-term future.

Therefore, the fans will be excited by Jacobs’ claim that a bid may be on the way before the end of the summer window.
