Newcastle United are already looking significantly stronger ahead of the new season.

The Magpies have invested heaviluy to improve their squad, and they may not be done yet.

The likes of Sven Botman, Nick Pope and Matt Targett have all been snapped up, with Eddie Howe addressing key areas.

Though, there is still work to be done, with Newcastle needing to add more strength if they are going to improve on their 11th place finish, and we could yet see a number of departures before the window comes to an end.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest Newcastle transfer news and rumours.

Marco Asensio links

Newcastle are being linked with a move for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.

The Spaniard could well leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, with his contract set to expire next year.

And according to Diario AS, Newcastle want to pull off a deal for the forward amid reported interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.

The latest reports suggest Asensio could be sold for a cut-price fee this summer, while further reports have claimed he is willing to accept a reduced wage to secure a move this summer.

Callum Hudson-Odoi interest

The Magpies are set to turn their attention to Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi after coming up short with an offer for another Premier League star.

According to The Sun, Newcastle could not convince Everton to let them sign Anthony Gordon, and they are unlikely to up their original offer.

Instead, it’s claimed they will attempt to sign Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi.

Newcastle are said to have offered £35million for Gordon, and it seems they will offer a similar amount for Hudson-Odoi.

It will be interesting to see how Chelsea respond, with the Blues planning to strengthen themselves this summer.

Hugo Ekitike talks

Newcastle have been linked with a move for Reims forward Hugo Ekitike throughout this summer.

The Magpies were said to be closing in on a deal after agreeing a deal worth around £40million with the French club.

But they decided to back out after the player’s agents reportedly dragged their heels during the negotiations over personal terms.

According to L’Equipe via Inside Futbol, Paris Saint-Germain are now pushing for a deal, already holding talks with Reims.

PSG are said to be leading Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the race.
