Newcastle Turn Attentions to Dutch International Winger
Newcastle are considering an approach for Feyenoord's 21 year-old winger Jean-Paul Boetius.
The 21-year-old is predominantly a left sided winger who can play across the frontline and has scored 18 goals in his first 72 Eredivisie appearances, a better goal return than that of Yoan Gouffran, who has scored 11 in 81 games for the club.
The winger, whose contract runs out next Summer, is believed to be wanting a move away from the Eredivisie, and could be available for the cut-price of just £2m.
Despite being just 21 years of age, Boetius is a full international for the Dutch side.
Jean-Paul Boëtius made his debut for the National side in March 2014 in a friendly against France. He was also called up to the Dutch preliminary squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but was later omitted from coach Louis van Gaal’s final selection.
Here’s a video of the lad in action:
I personally haven’t seen Boetius in action but, considering his reputation in Holland and his international experience, he sound like he could be a snatch at just £2m. Also, I’d take anyone if it meant Yoan Gouffran was finally shunted to his rightful position on the bench.
