Tottenham and Newcastle have been linked with a move for Stuttgart’s Mauro Camoranesi.
The Argentina-born Italian has failed to impress since his summer move from Juventus making just seven appearances in the Bundesliga. The 2006 World Cup winner has struggled to adapt to life both on and off the field in Germany and the club are prepared to cut their losses and let him leave this month.
The link to Spurs is surprising not least due to their acquisition of Steven Pienaar on Tuesday. With Aaron Lennon, Gareth Bale and Niko Kranjcar all present as wide options it is unclear why they would need the 34-year-old which makes it all rather unbelievable.
However, Newcastle’s interest could be more substantial. Despite having Wayne Routledge and Jonas Gutierrez in the squad, Alan Pardew is known to be keen on bolstering his midfield and a move for the experienced former Italy international could be in the offing. Camoranesi is unlikely to cost anything other than a nominal fee. (Sportingo)
Mauro Camoranesi has been around. The 34 year old has a vast amount of experience to call upon and could well be keen on one last hoorah before he hangs up his boots and whilst things at Stuttgart do not appear to have gone very well at all for the Italian international a move to St James’ Park may work nicely for all concerned.
Stuttgart are having a nightmare season but their relegation battle is not down to the former Juventus man who has not seen a great deal of action at the Bundesliga side this season. Camoranesi has racked up over 500 appearances in the top tier and on international duty and could offer Newcastle United another midfield option at a very reasonable price.
He could be offloaded for as little as £1.5m as he will be out of contract in the summer and it may well make sense for Alan Pardew to make an offer as having a player of such ability could help push the Magpies up towards a top six spot.
