Newcastle United’s highly coveted forward Ayoze Perez is attracting interest from across the Premier League, according to HITC.
Rafa Benitez’s preparations for the Championship are well on the way, with reports suggesting that Benitez is unsure that Ayoze Perez will be effective in the Championship, where physicality plays a much stronger role than it does in the Premier League.
There is no doubt that Perez could be a success in the Championship as a proven goalscorer in the Premier League however Benitez is tentative about using the 22 year old Spaniard next season.
The report claims that Rafa Benitez will be willing to allow Ayoze Perez to leave if Newcastle United receives a transfer fee above £10 million, and also a sell on clause is put in place.
The news of Ayoze Perez’s availability has alerted the attention of Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton. However, it is Tottenham Hotspur who are reportedly leading the way in pursuit of the Spaniard’s signature.
It appears that the interest in Ayoze Perez will continue to intensify with Rafa Benitez’s comments adding fuel to the fire, however keeping Perez could be one of Newcastle’s signings of the summer.
