Newcastle United open talks over triggering £15m release clause for 16-goal striker

Newcastle United are targeting a striker with a £15m release clause as a current Magpies star opens up on Everton’s Premier League punishment.

 

Newcastle United are reportedly keen to add to their forward options during the January transfer window.

 

The Magpies were boosted by the return of striker Alexander Isak on Saturday as the Sweden international netted the opening goal of the stunning 4-1 win against Chelsea. Anthony Gordon also found the net during an impressive victory at St James Park as the former Everton man continues to shine in a number of positions across Eddie Howe’s frontline.

 

But the news that Callum Wilson is expected to be out of action until the end of the December has left the Magpies boss to hope Isak and Gordon can remain fit as his side face eight games over the next four weeks.

 

TEAMtalk have now claimed the Magpies are looking to boost their striker options and have identified Stuttgart’s in-form frontman Serhou Guirassy as their preferred target. The Guinea international has scored 16 goals in 11 games in all competitions so far this season and that has led Newcastle to make a move for his services.

 

 

The report suggests the Magpies have ‘opened talks’ with Stuttgart over a move for their lead striker and have also spoken to the player’s agents over a possible deal. The likes of AC Milan and Ajax have also been linked with a move for Guirassy, who is believed to have a £15m release clause in his current deal.

The Toffees were handed the most severe punishment in the 31-year history of the Premier League last week when they were punished for failing to comply with profit and sustainability rules. That ensured Sean Dyche’s men slipped into the bottom three – although there was a defiant reaction from the former Burnley manager in the aftermath of the decision.

That ensured Sean Dyche’s men slipped into the bottom three – although there was a defiant reaction from the former Burnley manager in the aftermath of the decision.

 

 

Wilson, who was at Coventry when they were subjected to the same punishment and entered administration just over a decade ago, admitted Everton could use the decision to their benefit as they look to move out of the relegation zone over the coming weeks.
