The price then was 13, thirteen million pounds peanuts then. But at that time Pierre Emireck Abumeyang had failed to click with both Lille and Monaco as well, he was at this time playing for St Etienne. But this deal between Newcastle united and Pierre Emireck Abumaeyang was that his father also named Pierre was a footballer as well, had other ideas. In the year 2013 Jürgen Klopp was the manager of Borussia Dortmund, and Borussia Dortmund were champions of Germany, and on the other hand Newcastle United were playing in the Europa League.

It was the Armenian Henrik Mkitharyan, same pair signed in 2018 with Arsenal.
