Newcastle Linked With Ishak Belfodil Transfer

8 years ago

Newcastle are reported to be interested in an Ishak Belfodil transfer to Tyneside.

The 21 year old right footed striker is currently at Inter Milan but has found life frustrating since a £6m move from Parma in the summer.

Hoping to be a part of his national team’s presence in Brazil, the Algerian forward has only started one league match for Inter since his transfer.

Belfodil won his move after scoring 8 goals from 22 league starts for Parma last season and The Independent  are linking him with Newcastle United.

The striker told Le Buteur;

“I would obviously like to play more often as the World Cup is coming up and I’ve got to be in good shape.

“The transfer window (January) is approaching so I’ll talk with the directors and see what is happening.

“I’m happy at Inter but Halihodzic (Algeria coach) has made clear that I’ve got to play and that is why I am considering my options – the transfer market could throw up a solution.”

The fact the player can already speak French may be seen as an extra advantage if there is real interest from United.
