Newcastle In Negotiations For Diego Perotti According To Reports

Newcastle are claimed to be in negotiations to sign Sevilla winger Diego Perotti.

The 25 year old Argentinian midfielder has been at the Spanish club for the last seven years but spent the end of last season on loan at Boca Juniors, though he only made two appearances in four months.

The Sun claim that Perotti is available for £3.5m and that talks are underway for him to move to Tyneside.

While the player is an Argentinian international, his 75 minutes for the national side are spread over two matches and are three and five years ago respectively.

His overall profile is less than encouraging, with only one league goal in the last three years as he’s made 44 La Liga appearances in those 36 months, though only 24 of them saw him playing in the starting eleven.

On the positive side he has made 26 appearances in Europe while at Sevilla, including 8 Champions League matches, while he also scored four goals in the Europa League last season.

However, a succession of thigh and calf muscle strains has seen him miss much of the last two seasons and suggest another reason why Sevilla are trying to get him off their books.
