Sky Italy: Newcastle interested in signing Serie A full-back this summer

According to Sky Italy, Newcastle are now pursuing a deal for former Juventus full-back Rogerio.

This comes from Sky Sports’ Italian correspondent Gianluca Di Marzio, who claims we have reignited our interest in the Brazilian after some impressive displays in Serie A this season.

Rogerio is a left-back who signed a permanent deal at Sassuolo last summer following a series of successful loan spells from Juve.

This is not the first time we’ve been linked with a move for the 22-year-old in recent years, with us first being linked back in January 2019.

The Juventus youth product is believed to have been ‘excellent’ since Italian football resumed and has bagged a goal and an assist from full-back in 17 appearances this season.

Given he cost Sassuolo £5.5m last summer, fits our blue print, plays in a position where we’re sorely lacking in options AND has been linked with a move to Tyneside in the past, this one *might* just have legs.

Who knows, but here’s some clips of him in action nonetheless:
