Why the Toon Army might see him in the first team sooner than originally thought.
The striker position presents a unique situation for Newcastle United, and new signing Jacob Murphy offers much for the wide positions. But there could be serious potential in the near future for the Magpies’ attack from Victor Fernandez, who is beginning to attract quite a bit of attention.
The Spanish youngster performed well in Saturday’s SBOBET
match at Gateshead FC, scoring a goal for the Newcastle reserves in a 3-0 victory. Fernandez also took part in manager Rafa Benitez’s squad during a recent training stint in Ireland.
A sense of expectation must always be applied to talent working their way up to the first team, and Fernandez has to be able to focus upon his own overall progression as well as possibly contributing to the 2017-18 campaign.
Fernandez brings pace and a quality touch on the ball, with a creative flair when moving centrally also. While there may be more that needs to be seen before he would be in Premier League matches, the excitement from Newcastle fans is justified.
