Newcastle told ‘they will do well’ to sign impressive 11-goal attacker in summer, fans told
Newcastle United ‘would do well’ to sign West Brom playmaker Matheus Pereira this summer, that’s the view of Magpies legend Steve Howey.
The transfer window is just a few weeks away and it will give Steve Bruce the chance to try and splash a bit of money and improve the squad, as fans do not want to see another relegation battle next season.
Pereira enjoyed an impressive debut campaign in the Premier League despite the Baggies’ relegation, registering 11 goals and six assists in 33 appearances, and the former Sporting Lisbon star was one of the team’s most consistent performers as Sam Allardyce’s side briefly threatened to pull off a remarkable escape.
United’s priority this summer will almost certainly be agreeing a new deal with Arsenal for Joe Willock, but Howey believes Pereira would be another good signing for the Magpies.
Howey told This is Futbol : “I think Newcastle would do well signing him because I think he’s a decent player. You look at the teams that get relegated and they always seem to lose their best players
“It is surprising that West Brom went down because they have got some good individual players and some of them could certainly stay in the Premier League with other clubs.”
Newcastle need to add some more goals to the attack in the transfer window and they will do well to sign Pereira, as he has proven himself to be a very effective Premier League player.
