The Magpies don't have long to wait before they can explore their options on the transfer market.

Newcastle United have just two games of 2023 left before focus turns to the January transfer window. They will take on Luton Town in hopes to bag three points before Christmas, and then Boxing Day will see the Magpies play host to Nottingham Forest to round off the year.

As the window fast approaches, there are plenty of rumours flying around and Newcastle have naturally been caught up in the net of winter links. One of the latest reports has connected Eddie Howe's side to a new winger, and the man in question is 20-year-old Matias Soulé.

According to Tuttosport, Newcastle are 'ready to put €25m (£21.6m) on the table' for the Argentinian, who is currently out on loan with Frosinone from Italian giants Juventus. Soulé has started every single Serie A match so far this season and his contributed six goals and one assist from the right wing.

Naturally, his impact in attack has attracted a lot of attention from the Premier League and Newcastle are among those with their eye on him. Previous reports this month claimed the Toon were 'above all' the rest with their interest in Soulé and if they were to offer in the region of £21.6 million, it would be 'impossible' for Juventus to turn it down, as they are looking to improve their financial situation.

The latest update claims that both Juve and Frosinone 'may need more convincing' from Newcastle if they are to enter discussions over a deal in the coming weeks. However, the intention from Howe and co is there, which could lead to a very interesting January window as they try to tempt the Italians into parting ways with Soulé.

The 20-year-old plays primarily on the right but with a stronger left foot, he is a versatile player who can also operate in the attacking midfield role and just behind the centre-forward, making him a very attractive transfer target indeed.
