How much is Oliveira worth?

  How much is Oliveira worth? Nelson Oliveira has been the talk of the town this weekend after he was linked with a move to Championship side Reading. Norwich sold star midfielder Jonny Howson to rivals Middlesbrough earlier this week and looked set to sell their starting striker to Reading – another of Norwich’s rivals. It was said that Reading had an offer accepted for the forward, although that is believed to be wide of the mark. HITC reported on Friday that Jaap Stam sees Oliveira as the man to fire his side to the Premier League and is keen to add him to his strikeforce. However, those claims have since been rubbished and it is thought that Norwich are looking to keep the centre-forward this summer. Oliveira netted 15 goals in all competitions for Norwich last season, making him the club’s joint-top scorer alongside Cameron Jerome, although Oliveira only started 20 games. The Portuguese international signed for Norwich from Benfica last summer for a fee in the region of £5m. Norwich would, however, sell for the right price due to their financial situation.

The 27-year-old is believed to be available for just £2.65million. 4 And L’Equipe claims Everton, Newcastle and Fulham have all contacted the Manchester United target Marco Verratti set to sign new five-year PSG deal worth £9m-a-year - Продолжительность: 2:58 ManUtd News 19 просмотров.

Newcastle United appear to be on the lookout for a striker this summer and according to the Chronicle, they are hopeful of pipping Fulham to the signing of Diego Rolan.

The Bordeaux forward is looking set for a summer exit from the French club and although Fulham appeared to be leading the race, the Magpies are still in with a genuine chance of landing him.

A full Uruguay international, Rolan is ready for a new challenge. He’s said to be keen on making his mark in the Premier League and is relishing the prospect of a test away from Bordeaux.

The 24-year-old would reportedly be available for a fee of just £5 million this summer; something that would certainly appeal to Rafa Benitez as he looks to add more firepower to his attacking ranks.

Daryl Murphy linked with move to Sunderland

  Daryl Murphy linked with move to Sunderland According to The Gazette, Newcastle striker Daryl Murphy is being linked with a move to Sunderland, along with a number of fellow Championship sides. Murphy helped Newcastle gain promotion last season with his six goals but the club are set to sell him as they prepare for their return to the Premier League. Murphy is in a sought after striker due to his great Championship goal-scoring record so there’s no reason why Sunderland won’t be interested as they try and get back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. With the departure of Jermain Defoe to Bournemouth, the Black Cats are in the market to sign a new striker and Murphy is on their list but it may not happen unless it’s a short-term deal as they are low on funds. Murphy had this to say last month “Rafa is a top, top manager. He texted me after the Uruguay game to say well done. “I spoke to him last week about my future and he thanked me for what I had done and said they were going to listen to a few offers. I said ‘that’s fine’. “I always knew I had been brought in there to do a specific job, to help the club get promoted. I had no illusions that I was going to be starting for Newcastle in the Premier League if we got up.

Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic fears being priced out of a move away. The Mirror says Mitrovic is on collision course with Newcastle . The Serbian striker is adamant that a deal is struck with Fulham - only the Cottagers have not yet met Rafa Benitez's valuation.

Dwight Gayle could be on the way to Championship promotion- hopefuls Fulham . Newcastle are currently pondering whether to accept the offer or not but are reluctant to let striker Gayle go.

Fulham appear to hold the most interest in Rolan, with the Cottagers having already made an offer, but the striker would surely prefer a switch to Newcastle given the attraction of Premier League football.
