A number of Premier League clubs are linked with a Liverpool winger out of contract this summer but Newcastle may have an extra pull for the star.

Newcastle United will be looking to pick up where they left off in the Premier League this weekend when travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.

The Magpies won back-to-back matches against Wolves and Nottingham Forest to fire up their European crusade before the international break and Eddie Howe will be looking to take that positivity into the vital upcoming fixtures.

Sunday's clash with the Red Devils is of course a chance for revenge too after Erik ten Hag's side got the better of Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium last month.

Here are the latest Newcastle United transfer rumours.

Newcastle interested in Liverpool star with links to North East

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could look to move back to the North East with Little Mix partner Perrie Edwards this summer.

The winger is out of contract at Anfield this summer and is set to leave the club after a hit-and-miss five years with Jurgen Klopp's side.

Oxlade-Chamberlain's Premier League pedigree is turning the heads of some top-flight clubs with The Daily Mail reporting that Newcastle, Aston Villa and Brighton are among those interested in offering the 29-year-old a contract.

The Seagulls had made contact with the player in January after Adam Lallana picked up an injury but were unwilling to pay a transfer fee so will have to fend off new competition if still interested this summer.

The Liverpool star currently lives in a £3.5 million luxury home in Cheshire with partner Perrie Edwards and their one-year-old Axel.

The Little Mix singer is originally from the North East in South Shields and, should Newcastle come knocking, the family's links to the region could be a pull for the winger.

Newcastle star puts new agent in place ahead of summer move

Celta de Vigo centre-midfielder Gabri Veiga has made background moves to set up his transfer away from the Spanish club this summer.

According to Sport, the 20-year-old has left agency Sport Player and is looking for new representatives.

Veiga has been heavily linked with a move away from de Vigo and has a €40m release clause in his contract.

Newcastle interest in the star has been reported since February but there are also suitors in European giants Real Madrid.

With such a move on the cards, big-name agents including Jorge Mendes, Jonathan Barnett and Pini Zahavi have been touted as being keen to represent Veiga.
