Club To Receive Record Transfer Fee For Star Player As Newcastle United Pounce
| Last updated
Feyenoord are set to receive a record transfer fee for winger Luis Sinisterra, according to one report from the Netherlands.
The 22-year-old has made 17 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring 9 goals and registering 6 assists to date.
The winger is under contract for the Rotterdam club until June 2024 and is valued at £9.9million according to transfermarkt.
But the Rotterdam club are hoping to receive in the region of €20million for the winger - more than the record €18million received when Dirk Kuyt was sold to Liverpool in 2006.
"This will be the 20 million sale that will go through," journalist Maarten Wijffels told Voetbalpodcast in quotes published by TEAMtalk.
"He has a lot, that goal against Union Berlin that [Alireza] Jahanbakhsh made. Like he sometimes takes the ball, always facing forward.
"A really wonderful player. Newcastle United will immediately start bidding."
Sinisterra has been used solely as a left winger this season, but can also play on the right and as a centre-forward.
He has made a total of 81 appearances to date, scoring 21 goals and registering 21 assists since making a summer move from Once Caldas in July 2018.
Meanwhile, Newcastle have also been linked with a sensational move for Real Madrid's Eden Hazard according to a report by Eduardo Inda from El Chiringuito.
This suggestion was made after growing speculation that the Belgium star could return to Chelsea after an unhappy couple of years in the Spanish capital.Should a move back to west London fail to materialise, then Newcastle could offer Hazard a different route back to the Premier League.
Whatever happens, it looks like being a fascinating January transfer window at St James' Park.
