Speaking on the NUFC Matters YouTube channel, CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has been discussing Newcastle United’s interest in Harvey Barnes.

The Leicester City winger is reportedly a player the Magpies are very keen on, but as has been the story throughout this summer, United consider Barnes a tad too expensive.

Indeed, after struggling to land the likes of Moussa Diaby and Jack Harrison due to their inflated price tags, Newcastle are experiencing similar issues in their pursuit of Barnes.

What’s been said?

Jacobs shared what he knows about Barnes and Newcastle.

“With Barnes and Fofana what you’re seeing is Leicester doubling their price tag and Leicester are saying they’re not for sale,” Jacobs said.

“There’s no question in my mind that Leicester will not sell Harvey Barnes for less than £40m, and they will probably ask for £50m. Newcastle’s starting valuation for Barnes is closer to £25m, and we’ve seen all window that they don’t just throw money around for the sake of it.”

“At the moment they’re miles apart in valuation and there’s been no official bid made. Leicester are sending out vibes that Harvey Barnes is not for sale.”

Worth it

Leicester may ask for £50m for Barnes, but there’s a strong argument to make that this would be a fair price for the winger.

At the age of just 24, the attacker has so much room to grow, and he’s already one of the most useful players in the Premier League in his position.

16 goal contributions last season ranks him up there with the best of them, and if he could just improve his finishing he’d be the total package.

Young, homegrown and incredibly talented, Newcastle may want to take the hit and stump up the necessary cash to get Barnes to Tyneside.
