Newcastle interested in Lucas Perez


Rafa Benitez says he's "not happy" after Newcastle United missed out on several transfer targets. I think we will try to do our best. "The team spirit's quite good, and hopefully we replicate that this season".

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley promised to invest "every penny" gained from promotion in the first team after the Toon Army won the Championship last season but Benitez, who has repeatedly underlined the need to bolster his squad, admitted signing players has become increasingly hard because of the inflated transfer fees that have become routine in the Premier League.

A striker is a high priority this summer but Chelsea's Tammy Abraham preferred Swansea City to the north east while Arsenal forward Lucas Perez would rather return to Spain, with a move back to Deportivo on the cards.

Newcastle would undoubtably still value the Spaniard's experience in both La Liga as well as his limited time in the Premier League as the club step back up to the top flight following promotion from the Championship last season. "We are now trying to work in different directions". "It's not what you want, it's what you need".

But there is real competition from Newcastles Rafael Benitez, who has admitted that he spoke to Arsene Wenger personally about the possible transfer.

"If we are still in the race it's because we believe there's a possibility and we will continue to fight because the truth is the player is looking forward to joining us".

"It has been a frustrating summer for him [Benitez]", Shearer said.

Owner Mike Ashley had promised Benitez "every last penny" to improve the squad, but fans are unhappy at how little has been done.

"I know that he did really well".

"It's very hard (for me to walk away)".
