Newcastle United Transfer Rumor: Magpies in £9 Million Peter Crouch Bid?
Crouch, who managed seven goals last year in European football but only four in the whole Premier League campaign, has not impressed on the club's pre-season tour to South Africa, missing several chances he should have scored, and his domestic and international careers could benefit from a new environment.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is looking for another new forward, after signing Senegalese hitman Demba Ba last month from West Ham United.
In context of former player Andy Carroll's £35 million ($57.4 million) move to Liverpool last season and a relatively austere summer transfer spend to date, Tottenham's supposed £9 million ($14.75 million) asking price should not be a stumbling block.
But, taking into account an annual salary in excess of £3 million ($4.9 million), the move perhaps appears more risky, especially as the 6'7'' forward will soon be 31 years old. But Tottenham, desperate to trim, their squad quickly, may be willing to compromise on that asking price.
