According to sources cited by The Sun, Newcastle are carefully considering Morgan Gibbs-White as the ideal candidate to fill the void left by Almiron. Manager Eddie Howe is known to be an ardent admirer of Gibbs-White’s skills and believes that he can extract the maximum potential from the talented midfielder.
While Forest are reluctant to part ways with such a pivotal player, their current league position coupled with financial fair play (FFP) concerns may force the club’s board to greenlight a substantial transfer deal. The looming FFP danger has added a layer of complexity to Forest’s decision-making process, potentially paving the way for Gibbs-White’s departure.
As Newcastle United looks to strengthen its squad for the challenges ahead, the potential acquisition of Morgan Gibbs-White could inject fresh energy and creativity into their midfield, providing a seamless transition amidst the departure of Almiron.
The winter transfer window promises to be an intriguing period for both clubs involved, with the spotlight firmly on the future endeavors of these talented footballers.
