Saudi interest confirmed as Wolves provide competition for Newcastle United target

The latest transfer talk from St James Park as Newcastle United face competition for one reported target.

 

Newcastle United will reportedly face further competition as they look to boost their goalkeeping ranks during the summer transfer window.

 

The Magpies are awaiting the return of regular number one Nick Pope after he suffered what was initially believed would be a season-ending shoulder injury in a

 

1-0 home win against Manchester United in December.

 

Martin Dubravka has replaced the England stopper for the vast majority of the last

 

five months – but the Slovakian international will enter the final 12 months of his current deal at St James Park this summer.

 

Fellow goalkeepers Mark Gillespie and Loris Karius also face question marks over their own future as they find themselves out of contract at the end of the season.

 

Newcastle are believed to be keen to add at least one goalkeeper to their squad during the summer transfer window and the

 

Magpies have been linked with moves for Bayern Munich’s Alexander Nubel, Valencia stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili and former Manchester United stalwart David de Gea.

 

However, it is linked with Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale that have remained ongoing in

 

recent weeks and former Magpies defender Danny Simpson believes the England international would be a good fit for his old club.

 

Speaking on Stadium Astro earlier this season, Simpson said: “I personally think so.

 

There’s an opportunity that’s come about now and I’d be surprised if Newcastle don’t look at De Gea or Ramsdale.

 

I’ve been up there I’ve played there, I think Ramsdale and Newcastle are a perfect match with his character and the way the fans are up there.

 

Whereas you look at De Gea who’s not played for six months, what condition is he in? We don’t know.”
