Newcastle “ready to bid” to sign attacking Premier League trio

A big update has emerged on Newcastle United and their plans for the rest of the summer transfer window…

What’s the talk?

Northern Echo journalist Scott Wilson has revealed that the Magpies are preparing to table offers for multiple targets as they look to improve their options in the wide areas.

He tweeted: “TRANSFER LATEST: NUFC ready to bid for three different Premier League targets – Jack Harrison, Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes – but none currently fall within their price range and, at this stage, their respective clubs are in no mood to budge…”

The reporter then added: “Ideally, they want a wide attacker for about £25m. That’s roughly where they value all three of those players. The problem, of course, is that Leeds, Everton and Leicester think different!”

Supporters will be excited

This claim will surely leave supporters feeling excited as it suggests that the club are now at a stage where they are ready to start making serious moves to bolster their attack.

Newcastle are yet to sign a forward player in the window and this update confirms that they have now identified their targets and are willing to make firm offers for them.

Whilst Leeds, Everton and Leicester are holding firm at this moment in time, the situation may change once the Toon officially make an offer. A compromise could be made by one, or both, of the teams as the window heads into the final few weeks and clubs attempt to wrap up their business.

The Premier League campaign kicks off in under a fortnight and the aforementioned trio will not want any players who do not want to be there disrupting things on the pitch. There is no suggestion that will be the case with Harrison, Barnes or Gordon, but serious interest from Newcastle could tempt them into forcing a move.

Supporters will also be excited by the potential of one of them joining the Magpies this summer as they would all be excellent signings.

Harrison has racked up 16 goals and nine assists in the last two Premier League campaigns, whilst Barnes has scored 15 goals and provided 14 assists in that time. 21-year-old Gordon, meanwhile, is an up-and-coming winger and chipped in with four goals and two assists last term.

These statistics show that they are all capable of making an impact in the final third in the top-flight, or at least have the potential to go on and do so, and that is why supporters will be buzzing with the club’s interest in them.
