Duncan Castles of The Sunday Times claims that Lyon defender Jason Denayer is the latest player Newcastle United is looking for some new centre-backs.
Diego Carlos is clearly a top target and may still arrive if a price can eventually be agreed with Sevilla, but after Lille refused to sell Sven Botman, Castles moved to Benoit Badia in Monaco. Along with Seal, he revealed that he is also targeting Belgian International.
Speak in Transfer window podcastHe also claims that both Atalanta duos Duvan Zapata and Robin Gosens are keen to move to St. James’ Park in January, following interest from the club.
Castles claims they are working on “multiple deals” at the same time, despite the lack of progress last week, with two centre-backs, a striker (Zapata?) And a new left (Gosens?).
Here’s what he had to say about all of the above:
Duncan Castle looking for a new centre-back:
“Newcastle is considering multiple targets and working on multiple transactions.
“They have seen European clubs.
“Other targets include Benoit Badia Seal in Monaco and Jason Denayer in Lyon.”
Duvan Zapata of Atalanta Duo and Duncan Castle of Robin Gosens:
“Newcastle is trying to win another striker alongside centre-backs.
“They have offered Duvan Zapata over € 30 million.
“Because players are open to movement, Newcastle is making progress in getting players involved before making an offer.
“Zapata is demanding 5 million euros, which is more than double the current wages in Atlanta. And he is the highest paid player in the club.
“But my information is that he is ready to move [to Newcastle]…. Like his teammate Robin Gosens, Germany left the left.
“The price of Atalanta for players is over 40 million euros.
“Players are interested in coming and coming to Newcastle.
“So Atalanta is waiting to see if they get an acceptable offer for those two.”
