Newcastle Interest In Romanian Defender

8 years ago

Reports in Italy claim that Newcastle United are interested in signing Lazio centre-back Stefan Radu.

The 27 year old could be made available despite being a regular starter for the Italian club, with fears that the defender could leave on the cheap in a year’s time (currently has 2 years left), or even buy out his contract.

The Romanian (apologies to Nigel Farage – little bit of politics there…) wouldn’t be adding many goals of he arrived on Tyneside, having only managed two league goals in his entire senior career.

While there is speculation of the likes of Spurs and Manchester United being interested, it would lool to be more likely agent’s pushing that angle, as Radu’soverall  profile doesn’t make him that much of a stand-out.

Only seven clubs in Serie A leaked more goals than Radu and his Lazio teammates, whilst in terms of international action, the defender has only started three competitive matches for his national team.

A fee of £8m has been talked about and maybe this kind of signing could be achievable from a club who could finish only ninth in the league, though whether Stefan Radu would be a level above what we currently have is open to doubt.
