Newcastle United could land an astute piece of business in the summer if they are to land the Eintracht Frankfurt’s Daichi Kamada.
Are Newcastle interested in Daichi Kamada?
There have been reports suggesting the Magpies are eyeing a potential swoop for the Japanese midfielder who has impressed massively in the Bundesliga.
And there has even been the suggestion that the Tyneside club are actually leading the race to land the 26-year-old over the coming months.
However, the Magpies are not the only Premier League side said to be interested in the midfielder with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool credited with an interest.
But speaking to Football FanCast, journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed this could be a seriously impressive addition if the Magpies are able to beat off the competition from elsewhere:
“I think Kamada’s a top player and one of the probably the best free agents around the summer when his contract expires at Eintracht Frankfurt.
“He’s a top player. Played at the highest level was inspirational in helping Frankfurt win the Europa League last season as well. And as I said, he’s a top international as well. So I think get a player like that on a free transfer would be an astute piece of business by anybody.”
Who is Daichi Kamada?
The 26-year-old has now been showcasing his talent in Germany for a number of years now having made the move over from Belgium back in 2018.
And in the last few seasons, he has proven to be a real outlet for Frankfurt with consistent returns of goals and assists across all competitions.
This season alone, Kamada has been able to provide Oliver Glasner with 13 goals and five assists in his 28 appearances for the Geran side.
Should Newcastle go all out for Kamada?
Kamada has proven to be a threat in the Champions League too with three of his goals this season coming in the elite European competition.
This will likely mean he will want to continue to showcase his talent on the highest stage of European football which could potentially be on offer next season at St. James’ Park.
And that could be a major sticking point in Kamada’s decision-making this summer if he is to leave Frankfurt given his contract is set to expire at the end of the campaign.
However, Newcastle are yet to really break the mould of their wage structure with their Saudi-based owners at the helm.
And with some huge clubs credited with an interest, it wouldn’t be difficult to foresee a club being willing to pay the Japanese midfielder a significant weekly wage given his performances for Frankfurt over recent seasons.
