Richie Mills has spoken on the All Is Black and White podcast about the Premier League duo Dan Ashworth could sign for Newcastle United.
Mills, who is a journalist who covers Brighton, has weighed in on Ashworth’s Tyneside appointment and anything he will bring to the Magpies and even picked two Brighton players who could join Ashworth and Dan Burn up north after left the Seagulls.
The Magpies have been linked with Brighton players in the past including Robert Sanchez, Leandro Trossard and Yves Bissouma, and three of them would, at the very least, add great squad depth to Eddie Howe.
They are the first two, however, that Mills thinks Ashworth could try to sign for his new club.
Will Ashworth be a success at Newcastle?
(21:50) “It will be very interesting to see if Ashworth perhaps considers returning to Brighton in terms of I think Robert Sanchez and Trossard have been linked so I wouldn’t be surprised if they maybe try to sign some Brighton Players.
TIF Thoughts on Ashworth for Brighton players…
An easy start, where did Newcastle sign Bruno Guimaraes from?
Palmeiras? Lyon? Marseilles? Pleasant?
The likes of Sanchez (valued at £12.6m) and Trossard (valued at £15.3m) would certainly add Premier League experience and help maintain the team’s average age if Sanchez could replacing someone like Martin Dubravka, who is 33, while Trossard could well replace Matt Ritchie, who is now 32.
It remains to be seen whether or not Ashworth will feel like he could go back to his old stomping grounds and try to tempt some players to move North, or if he thinks the Magpies should target more players. high caliber for the PIF project have their sights set on winning the Premier League within the next 10 years.
