Newcastle United are interested in signing Josh King from Bournemouth this summer, but The Telegraph has claimed that Steve Bruce faces a potential dilemma as he looks to land the striker.
The Telegraph reports that the Magpies will be working with a modest budget during this window. It is claimed that Bruce will have just £30 million to spend.
It will be a big blow for Newcastle fans who had previously been dreaming of marquee signings who could immediately take the club to another level.
One player that Bruce does reportedly want is King, who, according to The Telegraph, is set to leave the Vitality Stadium in the coming weeks following their relegation.
However, The Telegraph notes that Bournemouth are looking for a fee of £20 million for King. That would, of course, eat up much of Bruce’s kitty.
