Newcastle could “rival” Burnley for Cornet
Burnley has been in talks with Lyon’s left-back winger Maxwell Cornet for some time but the deal has yet to be finalized as the player appears to need a lot of persuasion to join Turf Moor.
According to 90min, Newcastle could make the transfer even more complicated by making Cornet its own offer.
The site claims that ‘Premier League rivals Newcastle and West Ham are interested in a deal for the 24-year-old. Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin are also keen on him. ‘
Ex-Liverpool loaner a chance for Bruce
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has linked the magpies with Ozan Kabak.
The center-back spent the second half of last season on loan at Liverpool after center-backs Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were injured. However, the Reds refused to make the deal permanent and instead bought Ibrahima Kounate from RB Leipzig.
Although Romano has linked the club to Kabak, he said that no offer has been made at the time and that Schalke prefer a permanent deal at the time, while Newcastle are looking to take advantage of the credit market.
Premier League team watches Hayden
Football Insider has claimed Watford has an interest in signing Toon midfielder Isaac Hayden.
The player is out due to injury but is expected to return soon. He’s not a player Steve Bruce would like to leave and he signed a six-year deal in September 2020 so Newcastle is well protected to stave off any interest.
