PREMIER - Newcastle United are after Dutch duo De Ligt and De Vrij'
Matthijs de Ligt and Stefan de Vrij are linked to Newcastle United. Since the club was taken over by the Saudi crown prince, it has been a hit every day in terms of rumors. The Premier League club is fighting relegation at the moment, but wants to quickly reach the top of Europe. That requires new players.
The Italian Tuttosport has dedicated a cover to the expected transformation in the English port city. The club now has a wealthy owner with an estimated net worth of more than three hundred billion euros. This makes it possible to search for world top players. De Vrij and De Ligt would be in the picture to provide the defense with extra qualities. At Orange, the two have to compete for a base place. Louis van Gaal has preferred the defender of Internazionale in recent games.
The medium knows that Newcastle are after a total of five players from the Serie A. In addition to the Dutch defenders, AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, International midfielder Marcelo Brozovic and Juventus striker Federico Chiesa should also be sold to Newcastle. However, the question is how serious the interest is: since the oil billions have arrived in Newcastle, the team has been linked to almost all players who walk around the European fields. Philippe Coutinho, Jesse Lingard, Dele Alli, Gareth Bale, Alexandre Lacazette and Clement Lenglet have already been mentioned as possible reinforcements for The Magpies.
Not only players are mentioned, also trainer Steve Bruce seems to have to make way. It is not yet known who should succeed him, but Lucien Favre, who was previously fired from Borussia Dortmund, seems to have the best papers.
