Newcastle could soon launch £65m move for striker ‘better than Haaland’

Newcastle United have proven themselves willing to be reactive in the transfer market.

have shown a willingness to be reactive in the transfer market.

Indeed, the club modified its plans to strengthen in important areas just this summer. After all, Tino Livramento was not supposed to be a priority, but Newcastle acted when the opportunity arose.

They’ll be delighted they did based on his performance against Manchester City last week.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hall was apparently on his way to join Crystal Palace on loan before the Magpies swooped.

Even if Newcastle’s success in the PIF period has been founded on cohesive squad preparation, that willingness and ability to be open to possibilities is critical.

Following the spectacular events in Italy, they may now be ready to move.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, billed by his agent as “better than [Erling] Haaland” could reportedly leave the club.

The striker fired the club to an historic Serie A title last season but was the subject of a bizarre TikTok put out by the club channels and has duly been linked away.

Italian outlet Sport Italia suggest Newcastle are interested in the 24-year-old and that a £65m offer could be launched. The report even claims a swap deal with Alexander Isak could be on the cards.

It’s difficult to picture that happening in January.
Even if Newcastle wasn’t constrained by Financial Fair Play (FFP), it’s tough to see a deal happening in January.

If selected, the Nigeria international would be abroad on international duty at the African Cup of Nations that month, which will undoubtedly complicate matters.

However, in the long run, it would make sense.

Last season, he was one of Europe’s most prolific scorers, with 31 goals in all competitions. Eddie Howe appears to enjoy having two top level forwards, as he now swaps England international Callum Wilson with Isak.

Any bid for Osimhen would undoubtedly be a bold move.
