Newcastle United want Tosin Adarabioyo and are turning to the Fulham defender as they seek signings for Eddie Howe’s back line.
The Magpies signed Dan Burn in January but remain linked with other centre-backs.
Lille star Sven Botman is the top target but he’s left-footed, like Burn, so right-footers will also be kept an eye on.
The likes of Merih Demiral and Roger Ibanez have been linked with that role but Newcastle may be looking a little closer to home now.
Newcastle United want Tosin Adarabioyo
Newcastle now turn their attention to Fulham centre-back Adarabioyo.
The mirror claim that Newcastle are looking to pounce on Adarabioyo as he has just one year left on his Fulham contract.
Fulham will want to keep Adarabioyo but if he doesn’t agree to a new deal soon they might be better off selling now.
That’s certainly what Newcastle are hoping for and they may be hoping to get a bargain for Adarabioyo.
Adarabioyo is 6ft 5in and could form a mountainous partnership with Burn at the heart of Newcastle’s backline.
The 24-year-old may not be as well known as some of the other centre-backs on the Newcastle wish list but he has certainly excelled for Fulham.
Hailed as “extraordinary” by his former Manchester City boss Pep GuardiolaAdarabioyo was a hot prospect at Etihad Stadium.
However, with his path to first-team football blocked, Adarabioyo opted to leave City for guaranteed minutes at Fulham.
Adarabioyo is now a key player for the Cottagers and absolutely essential in their promotion season and is developing into a top-flight defender.
Newcastle are now hoping to lure Adarabioyo to St James’ Park, having shown keen interest in the hulking defender back in December.
In other news, Cazorla once said the Arsenal moment’s surprise move was the “best signing of the season”.
