Newcastle turn attentions towards Brighton star as Leno eyes return to Germany


A fresh insight into the plans of Newcastle United to reinforce the club’s goalkeeping ranks ahead of next summer has been forthcoming this weekend.

The situation between the posts at St James’ Park has, of course, proven a major talking point to this point in the campaign.

This comes amid the widespread agreement on the part of the club’s fanbase that current options at the disposal of Eddie Howe – in the form of Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow – are simply not up to scratch.

In turn, with the Magpies expected to flex their financial muscle once more come the summer on the back of the Saudi takeover of the club, the addition a new shot-stopper has been identified as something of a priority.

And, if the latest word stemming from the media over the course of the weekend is anything to go by, then one such goalkeeping target has already been identified.

The player in question? Brighton’s Robert Sanchez.

As per a report from The Sun:

‘Newcastle are set to snatch stopper Robert Sanchez from Brighton and make him their new No 1.’

It is suggested that Newcastle are lining up a proposal worth around £20 million for the Seagulls star, ready to test the resolve of those in a position of power on the south coast.

This comes at the direct behest of manager Eddie Howe, understood to be a keen admirer of Sanchez’s talents.

Leno latest

Word of the transfer team on Tyneside turning their attentions towards Sanchez would appear to make sense, amid the latest speculation doing the rounds when it comes to the intentions of another shot-stopper long tipped as a key target on Newcastle’s part.

Arsenal’s Bernd Leno has of course long been named as a potential summer arrival at St. James’, after too being linked with the newly-minted Magpies during the January window.

According to the Daily Star, however, the German, who has of course lost his starting position to Aaron Ramsdale this season, has his sights set elsewhere.

Leno is understood to be ready to reject any and all advances for his signature from elsewhere ahead of next season, to secure a return to his home country and the Bundesliga.
