Newcastle United must land Fulham star Tosin Adarabioyo

Newcastle United could repeat their Callum Wilson masterclass this summer with Fulham star Tosin Adarabioyo.

What’s the story?

Reports in recent days and weeks have suggested that Steve Bruce’s side are one of a number of Premier League clubs interested in signing the 6 foot 5 powerhouse this summer after the Cottagers’ relegation back to the Championship last season.

Would you take Adarabioyo at Newcastle?





And, in response to the links, former Magpies ace Howey told The Transfer Tavern: “Normally what tends to happen is clubs that get relegated, other clubs will pick the carcass off it and they just pick the best players. Look at what happened to Bournemouth last year, for example. Decent player. Could he perform even better with some solid players around him? You know, possibly.”

Another Callum Wilson masterclass

As Howey says, when clubs get relegated from the Premier League, they leave themselves open to the vultures circling and swooping in on their best players.

The Magpies did that to great effect last summer when they signed both Wilson and teammate Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth, and while the latter had an injury-hit campaign that has seen him yet to deliver the goods, the former was a real shining light.

The England international bagged 12 goals in his 26 Premier League games for the Tyneside club, and proved that there is real value for money and quality in teams that have gone down.

And in Adarabioyo, Newcastle could do exactly that again.

Having been described as a “high quality, class player” and “immense” by Tony Mowbray, his former boss at Blackburn, Adarabioyo has the kind of pedigree which could really bolster Bruce’s side.

Mowbray said: “The reason we brought him was because of his attributes. He’s 6ft 5in, he’s very very quick, his distribution is as a good as any centre-back in the division.”

It’s no surprise that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has previously called him “exceptional“, or why Newcastle are keen on landing the £60k-a-week earning powerhouse this summer.

Adarabioyo could be another Wilson-esque masterclass for the Magpies and Mike Ashley.
