Odds Shorten On One Winger Target While Another Likes Joelinton Signing

Hull Live is reporting that Newcastle’s odds of signing Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen have been recently slashed.

Over the past seven days, Newcastle’s odds of signing the twenty-two year old has dropped from 10/1 to 5/2. This seems to coincide with Mark Douglas’s tweets from last week about Newcastle’s interest in a good Championship winger.

We really like Jarrod Bowen and think he would fit in really well at Newcastle. He also has some history with Steve Bruce as he joined Hull’s youth system when Steve was the manager in 2014

Jarrod Bowen– would look great in black and white

Arsenal were linked with a £12m swoop for Bowen a few weeks ago according to the Sun. He has also been heavily linked with Everton where his former manager Marco Silva currently is.

However, it is now Newcastle who has leaped ahead of recent favorites Southampton as the leaders to land the very exciting winger.

Yesterday, Newcastle were heavily linked with another right-sided forward in Nice’s Allan Saint-Maximin. There were rumblings that Steve Bruce looked into the player but did not like what he had heard.

Saint-Maximin has reportedly fallen out with Nice manager Patrick Vieira over his lack of commitment during the end of this past season.

There may be something brewing with Saint-Maximin though as he has reportedly liked the signing of Joelinton on Instagram.

Nice reportedly want £25m for Saint-Maximin while Newcastle reportedly rate him at around £15m

Either player would be a great addition to Newcastle’s squad. Bowen is a left-footed wide forward who plays on the right with an eye for goal.

Allan Saint-Maximin is a master dribbler who would certainly be a crowd favorite though he has been known to be a selfish player at times.

Could one of these players be headed to Newcastle by the end of this week?
