Anthony Limbombe is no longer training with Club Brugge’s first team, according to Het Laatste Nieuws with the Belgian winger’s future at the club in doubt.
A move to Huddersfield reportedly collapsed last week and the Belgian media believe we are now the favourites to sign the 24-year-old.
A pacey left-winger with a great deal of talent, Limbombe would certainly excite fans at St James’ Park, and when polled, almost a three-quarters of supporters said they would like to see him in the black and white:
Considering the club’s reluctance to spend money this summer, I can’t see us sealing a deal for the Belgian international before the transfer window closes. The Sun say he could cost £11m, and the fact is we have priorities in other areas.
The Chronicle report Rafa Benitez is targeting four signings: a striker, a number 10, a left-back and a centre-back so any fans hoping we’ll snap up Limbombe will probably be left disappointed.
