Newcastle ready to break club transfer record this summer

  Newcastle ready to break club transfer record this summer Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez says he is ready to break the club’s transfer record as he pursues a 15 goal per-season forward. The Independent report that Benitez was forced to spend little when he was looking for a striker last summer, with the club eventually paying just £5million for Stoke frontman Joselu. He said: “If you want to bring a striker with a guarantee of more than 10-15 goals per season, you have to pay money for him for sure.” The Spaniard is currently in talks with the club to extend his stay at St James’ Park as he prepares to enter the final year of his existing contract. Assurances over what he will be given to spend and his freedom to do so are a key part of the ongoing discussions. Benitez has insisted that he has no problem working to a budget and would only break the club record if its necessary. “I was always concerned and taking care of the numbers. I was learning in England to work with a business plan, you have to have a realistic business plan and then if you know that, you have to work on that. Does that mean you have to break the record? If it is necessary, you can do it. But if it’s not necessary, it’s just to be sure you have the funds to compete.

The summer transfer window is officially open for Premier League clubs after it was decided that it was best for all parties if the window closed before the start of the new campaign.

We’ve taken a look at some big money moves, involving Premier League clubs, that could happen this year.

Everton and Roma locked in race for Ajax man .
Everton are set to be locked in a battle with Roma for the signing of Ajax youngster Justin Kluivert this summer, according to Italian outlet Tuttosport, as translated by Sport Witness. The Toffees had a very poor season last term, with a number of the transfers failing to live up to expectations after a big summer at the club. No manager has yet been put in place at the club and this could have an impact on whether Everton are able to convince the young attacker to join. Roma are now a very attractive proposition, particularly after reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League this season and qualifying for the competition again ahead of next term. The Italians are still the firm favourites to land the Dutchman, but Everton are thought to be the only competition on offer to them as both clubs look to move forward. Kluivert reportedly favours a move to Italy but a move to Goodison Park is seemingly not out of the question, with the club’s new technical director Marcel Brands keen to engineer a deal for the prospect.
