Rafael Benitez insists on the transfer of Stevan Jovetić.
Magpies did not start their adventure in the Premier League well and in the first two rounds they did not manage to score any points but also goals. The manager of the newcomers demands reinforcement and his priority is now Stevan Jovetic. "TuttoMercatoWeb" report that Spaniard is pressing for his club to bring Montenegrin to be central figure of his team.
Benitez personally asked the board to bring in the striker, and he decided to join the race. Still today, the English are to contact the Nerazzurris and try to persuade them to sell the player. Negotiations are easier because the 27-year-old is not in the club's plans for this season, but Inter are still demanding 17 million euros for him.
This amount does not deter Newcastle, and especially Benitez. St James' Park team can still compete with Sevilla, who do not resign from the striker, although the price would be problematic for them.
