Lazio Striker Heading To Tyneside?

Last updated : 24 January 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor
Lazio revealed interest from Bayern Munich, but the player himself claims Newcastle have been in touch.

Liverpool and Valencia are also said to be looking at the 24-year-old, who has scored eight goals in 16 Serie A appearances this season.

But reports now suggest Rafel Benitez will not be backed by the club's Yank owners, as he is 11/10 to be the next Premiership manager to be sacked.

Pandev: "This morning the people from the club told me about the offer from Newcastle.

"Keegan's club want the negotiations to start soon, but I don't know anything about the figures and a possible sum.

"I am used to offers lately, but I don't decide, so this time it's not up to me again.

"Several days ago we agreed with Lazio for me to stay up to June, but anything is possible."
