Geordie Boy Forster To Decide On Mackem Move
Newcastle Utd fan Fraser Forster could be on his way to Mackemland!
According to today's news, Liverpool are about to sign Sunderland keeper Simon Mignolet, and the Mackems will make a £4m offer for Forster.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has faced potential competition from Arsenal for Mignolet who are also involved in a summer of rebuilding, but Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger won't go over £6.5m for the keeper.Sunderland rejected Liverpool’s £6.5m offer out of hand for a player who was pivotal in keeping the club in the Premier League last season.But the Reds have not been dissuaded and have tabled several improved offers, rising to £8m early this week.Yesterday, the Merseysiders were prepared to go to £9m, but Sunderland are holding out for a fee in excess of £10m for a player Steve Bruce paid £2m for, three years ago.Forster said last month he wants to return to Newcastle "someday", but it seems the Mackems could get in first.
