A look at the latest Newcastle United transfer headlines with the Magpies continuing their charge away from the Premier League relegation places.

Newcastle United picked up a valuable three points over the weekend, seeing off Brentford thanks to goals from Joelinton and Joe Willock.

The Magpies are now seven Premier League games without defeat, and that has helped them move up to 14th in the table, four points ahead of the drop, albeit Burnley have a game in hand.

Eddie Howe’s men still have a long way to go until they are safe, but given their new-found wealth, they can be forgiven for planning for next season.

And given the presence of their Saudi Arabia-backers, Newcastle are already being linked with a number of big-money transfers.

Here, we run you through the latest transfer rumours concerning the Magpies:

Marco Senesi price tag

Newcastle could secure themselves a bargain this summer, with Marcos Senesi continuing to be linked.

The Feyenoord centre-back has been touted for a move to St James’ Park, and amid those links, Dutch agent Henk Timmer has reported that Senesi could be available for €12-15million (£10m-£12.5m) this summer.

He told Voetbal Primeur: “He still has a contract for one year, so twenty million will no longer be Feyenoord.

“If you are between twelve and fifteen million, you are doing very well.”

Sven Botman latest

Newcastle United chief Amanda Staveley has claimed Lille star Sven Botman ‘desperately’ wants a move to St James’ Park.

But Football Italia have also claimed Botman has agreed terms with AC Milan, potentially ruling out a move this summer.

The Magpies may need to look elsewhere to sign a defender, and it perhaps makes the Senesi deal more likely.
