Report: Newcastle £10m away from signing 'incredible' player this summer, they are pushing now
Reports suggested last week that Leeds United were attempting to bring the ‘incredible’ Pedro to Elland Road on loan but it seems that Newcastle are also interested.
The 20-year-old Watford striker has got off to a decent start in the Championship this season as he has bagged one goal in his first three games.
Pedro put in some eye-catching performances for the Hornets in the Premier League last season but couldn’t prevent the club from being relegated.
Now, the Magpies are reportedly interested in bringing the Brazilian to St James’ Park this summer.
Newcastle pushing to sign Pedro
The Hornets are not happy with the Magpies’ opening bid and are reluctant to lose the Brazilian as they could also lose Ismaila Sarr this summer.
The Championship outfit also sold Emmanuel Dennis to Nottingham Forest this summer and are reluctant to lose another one of their key players.
Watford will only negotiate with Newcastle if they up their offer to at least £30 million but it’s unclear whether the Magpies will move again for the striker.
Eddie Howe has been in the market for attacking reinforcements and missed out on Hugo Ekitike to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer.
The Magpies have shown interest in Chelsea striker Armando Broja but it remains unclear if the striker will leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
Pedro could be a brilliant option for Howe to compete with Callum Wilson and Chris Wood at St James’ Park.
While the young striker wasn’t prolific in the Premier League, he has plenty of time to improve and has shown real promise at Watford.
The Brazilian can also play on either wing and would provide a versatile option across Howe’s front-three this season.
