'Wants the move': Journalist claims 'unbelievable' player now wants to sign for Newcastle
Newcastle have been bolstered in their attempts to try and sign Joao Pedro from Watford, with they player apparently keen on the move.
Pedro has emerged as a key target for Eddie Howe and Newcastle in the last few days as the Magpies look to add some more firepower to the ranks before the deadline passes. The Watford star is seen as one of the standout players in the Championship, with the Hornets having already lose Emmanuel Dennis and seen Ismaila Sarr’s move to Aston Villa collapse.
And according to journalist Ben Jacobs, Watford could well see Pedro depart this week, with the player apparently keen to see the two clubs do business before the window slams shut. Taking to Twitter to provide an update, Jacobs says talks are continuing and Newcastle are confident they can strike an agreement with the Hornets for Pedro.
The impressive Pedro was signed by Watford amid claims he could be as good as a certain Gabriel Jesus. Indeed, he has been labelled as being an ‘unbelievable‘ talent, albeit he hasn’t produced as consistently as some might have hoped at Vicarage Road.
TBR’s View: Pedro To Newcastle Will Get Done
There seems to be legs in this one now and it looks like Newcastle are sticking at things in the hope they can get the best price possible from Watford.
Joao Pedro is probably a player who, with better structure and players around him, can thrive. He is certainly good enough for the Premier League, and should rip the Championship apart if he does stay at Watford.
The fact he wants to leave though is good news for Newcastle and at the moment, it looks like they might well get a deal over the line here.
