Newcastle United scouting claim, transfer move for Champions League hero tipped, Hazard update

All the latest Newcastle United transfer rumours as Eddie Howe’s men prepare to face Everton on Thursday night.

Newcastle United are gearing up for their Premier League clash with Everton on Thursday evening.

The dust has now settled on the weekend’s controversial defeat to Chelsea when Eddie Howe’s men were left hard done by.

And all focus will now be attempting to return to winning ways against a struggling Everton side at Goodison Park.

In the meantime, the Magpies continue to be linked with a host of big-money transfers ahead of this summer, and here have rounded up all the latest rumours.

Nunez latest

The Magpies are still being linked with a move for Benfica frontman Darwin Nunez.

Nunez scored the winner for Benfica on Tuesday night as the Portuguese side stunned Ajax in the Champions League.

And CalcioMercato have followed up his latest performance by discussing his future, claiming Newcastle are among the likely suitors.

Denayer situation

Newcastle are said to be doing their homework on former Sunderland star Jason Denayer ahead of the summer.

The centre-back is out of contract at Olympique Lyon this summer, and the Magpies are said to be keen on snapping him up on a free transfer.

Het Nieuwsblad via TEAMTalk have reported that Newcastle have already gathered information on Denayer ahead of a possible move.

Hazard chatter

Newcastle are said to be one of the teams considering a move for Real Madrid star Eden Hazard ahead of this summer.

Hazard has struggled with injuries and poor form since his move to Los Blancos from Chelsea for more than £100million in 2019.

Real Madrid are likely to strengthen their front line this summer and could well cut their losses on Hazard.

With that in mind, FootMercato have linked Newcastle and Arsenal with a move for Hazard.
