“I spoke with Newcastle, Arsenal, Tottenham” – Agent hints at Premier League move

The agent of Genoa centre-back Radu Dragusin has once again linked his client with a move to Newcastle United in 2024.

Speaking about the former Juventus talent, Florin Manea claims that he’s spoken to Newcastle, Arsenal and Spurs about the 21-year-old, saying he’s been in London ‘for some time’ to hold meetings about his client’s future.

Manea reveals that AC Milan also ‘like him a lot’, but states that the Romanian international ‘wants to be in the Premier League’ and will be allowed to leave if Genoa receive an offer in the region of 30m.

This isn’t the first time he’s discussed our alleged interest in Dragusin. His agent has previously namechecked Dan Ashworth and Fabrizio Romano revealed earlier this month that we’d been scouting the player.

Here’s what Manea told Fanatik about a potential move:

“The people from Genoa know (that he will soon leave). I have been in London for some time and have almost weekly meetings with important teams. We are getting closer. I spoke with Newcastle, with Arsenal, with Tottenham. I also have the messages with them, conversations. There are teams that ask.

“I want to say that, 100 per cent by next summer, Radu will play for a very strong club. One in the top 10 in the world. He wants to be in the Premier League, but I know that Milan like him a lot. I talked to the people there.”

“We have a contract extension offer on the table. We understood each other but we said that, if a club comes and we like it, we want to leave and leave us for around 30 million euros.”
