Another top target ‘keen’ to join NUFC as club step up talks over £30m deal – Report

Yesterday, The Telegraph reported that that Kieran Trippier wants to join Newcastle United in January and could even arrive as the first signing of the Saudi era next week.

Now, The Mail’s Simon Jones has published a promising piece on our pursuit of Lille centre-back Sven Botman,

He claims that the Dutch defender is another of our top targets, and crucially states that the 21-year-old is ‘keen’ to make the move to Tyneside.

The Mail report that we have ‘stepped up negotiations’ with Lille over a £30m deal for Botman, with us looking to blow AC Milan out of the water by meeting the Ligue 1 side’s valuation.

It’s said that talks ‘intensified’ on Wednesday and that he is the exact type of centre-back Howe wants to sign, being a ‘young, dominant defender who is confident on the ball.’

The same piece states that we are pushing to bring in FOUR defender, a midfielder and a striker in January and hope his arrival could convince others to sign, with Everton’s Lucas Digne also said to be a target alongside Kieran Trippier.
