All the latest transfer news surrounding Newcastle United as preparations begin for a top four six-pointer.

Newcastle United are now preparing for a huge clash in their bid to land a top four finish.

The Magpies suffered a setback last weekend when they lost to potential European rivals Aston Villa, but they have a chance to get their Champions League bid firmly back on track against direct rivals Spurs. A win this weekend would be a huge step towards a Champions League spot, while defeat will blow the top four race wide open.

As Eddie Howe and his men begin preparations for that one, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding St James’ Park.

Schuurs bid expected

Newcastle are said to be interested in signing Torino star Perr Schuurs this summer. Schuurs played with Sven Botman at Ajax and is understood to be good friends with his fellow Dutchman.

According to Tuttosport and DAZN via SportWitness, the 23-year-old centre-back is one of Newcastle’s main targets this summer as they look to strenghen their defensive line, and they are willing to pay more than £30million to get their man. Torino are likely to demand a high fee such as that if they are to sell Schuurs, something one of their club chiefs, Urbano Cairo, has already confirmed.

Fortunately, Newcastle do have money to play with, and that will give them an advantage in any transfer race for Schuurs this summer.

Transfer links shut down

Newcastle have been linked with Napoli duo Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in recent weeks, but it seems the rumours hold little water.

Transfer insider Dean Jones told the Chasing Green Arrows podcast: “There is absolutely no chance.

“Like, even if Newcastle are abandoning their careful spending, there is not enough money in the world to convince those two to go to Newcastle at the moment. I’m sorry, you are not there.”

Ultimately, Osimhen, in particular, is headed for the very top this summer, likely to find himself a team challenging for league and European titles ahead of next season.
