Nottingham Forest Winger Ben Osborn On Newcastle Radar
It has been revealed that Rafa Benitez wants Nottingham Forest’s Ben Osborn at Newcastle United.
The Daily Mirror claims that the Championship-leading Magpies are eager to lure the 22-year-old winger to St James’ Park if they happen to achieve promotion back to the Premier League.
Benitez went after Osborn in January but Forest were not keen to sell at the time.
That brought about criticism from Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles who publicly commented that Osborn, along with Henri Lansbury and Michael Mancienne, were not being ‘treated fairly for what they are offering and giving to the club’.
It is believed that Benitez will make another move for Osborn at season’s end if he is successful in guiding the Toon back to England’s top flight.
