Newcastle to watch 22-year-old winger on Sunday, he would cost €13.8m

Posted by

Newcastle United are reportedly keen on the Boca Juniors winger Kevin Zenon.

According to Ole, Newcastle will send a scout to watch the player in action this week on Sunday. The 22-year-old is highly-rated in South America and the Magpies are keen on signing the Argentine at the end of the season.

Zenon has a €13.8 million release clause in his contract and Newcastle would have no problems paying that.

The Magpies need more depth in the wide areas and the 22-year-old should prove to be a quality, long-term acquisition. He is capable of operating as a winger as well as a wing-back. He could prove to be a useful option for Eddie Howe next season.

The reported asking price seems quite reasonable for a player of his potential and Zenon could prove to be a bargain in the long run.

The opportunity to move to the Premier League will be an attractive option for the South American and we will look to test himself in English football.

Newcastle are one of the wealthiest clubs in the world and they have an ambitious project. The opportunity to play for them can be hard to turn down for most players now.

The talented winger has a goal and an assist to his name in six of appearances this season. He will look to continue impressing in the coming months and convince the top clubs to make a move for him at the end of the season.
