9 Premier League transfers only a day apart turns up heat on Newcastle United

4 years ago

After 17 Premier League transfers in the previous two months, things have really come alive.

Whilst some £250m had been committed in May and June by Premier League clubs, there had only been a relatively small number of deals agreed.

That has all changed though now.

A day apart, Friday and Saturday saw nine separate Premier League transfers announced, with many of those deals involving clubs that Newcastle are expected to need to finish above, if a relegation battle is to be avoided.

Watford have signed two, Huddersfield a couple as well, whilst Bournemouth added one to go with Thursday’s capture of Jermain Defoe.

Newcastle have been heavily linked with Henry Onyekuru and Willy Cabaellero but they are now Everton and Chelsea players respectively.

Aaron Mooy was said to be a Newcastle target at one point but has become Huddersfield’s record signing.

Likewise, Newcastle were said to have made an enquiry about Nathan Ake but he has instead signed on at Bournemouth in a £20m record transfer for them.

Last summer saw a record £1.2bn spent by Premier League clubs and the signs are that summer 2017 is going to leave that well behind.

Pre-season training starts tomorrow for Newcastle United and our competitors are now showing their hand in the transfer market, the question being when will Newcastle join them?
