Here is your summary of Newcastle United’s 4am.
Rome allegedly plans to move Allan Saint-Maximin
José Mourinho could try to do the Newcastle stars one of his first signings for Roma.
This is according to the Italian news agency Corriere Della Sera who suggest that Mourinho could test the Magpies’ determination with a £ 40 million bid.
Saint-Maximin it has been a revelation for Newcastle since signing with Nice two years ago, but has struggled with injury problems over that time.
Newcastle ‘monitoring’ Leeds United striker Tyler Roberts
Newcastle is monitoring Roberts’ situation in Leeds.
This is in line with Mail Online, who claim that although Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan of the Welsh international, the 22-year-old is eager to become a more regular starter.
The report suggests that Newcastle is “keeping an eye on the situation”, with Steve Bruce eager to increase his British contingent at the club.
Roberts made 26 appearances for the first time without finding the net for Leeds this season, but after looking at him, Newcastle thinks the former West Brom striker could still improve.
Magpies linked to the side of Southampton
According to Foot Mercato, Newcastle, Marseille and Borussia Monchengladbach are monitoring Southampton side Yan Valery.
The 22-year-old fought for playing time with the Saints this season and spent the second half of the season on loan at Birmingham City in the league.
The report states that Valery is looking forward to returning to France, but Newcastle and Gladbach are “watching their situation closely”.
Liverpool must snub Ozan Kabak’s final move
Liverpool decided not to hire Schalke defender Ozan Kabak on a permanent contract.
The 21-year-old Turkey international has been impressing in the Reds’ midfield since joining in January to help with the defensive crisis.
But, according to The sun, they will not activate the option to buy it for £ 18 million, which has put Premier League clubs on ‘red alert’.
Reports in January stated that Newcastle had “struck a deal” to sign Kabak before he joined Liverpool and after the Bundesliga Schalke’s demotion, they will be forced to lower the asking price of £ 18 million.
Leicester ‘close to signing’ ex-Newcastle target
Leicester is approaching the signing of Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare, according to Mail Online.
Soumare, of course, declined a £ 35m transfer to Newcastle last season and now he is apparently ready to join the Foxes after expressing his desire to join a club that can offer Champions League football.
The 22-year-old’s performances helped Lille move closer to winning the Ligue 1 title this season, and any move to Leicester could have consequences for Hamza Choudhury’s future at King Power Stadium.
Newcastle, of course, was interested in signing England’s former international under-21 midfielder on loan in the January transfer window.
