Newcastle United are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to raise a formidable squad ahead of the new season, starting on August 5. Eddie Howe’s team are reportedly considering a move for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi
The Magpies still remain keen on securing a deal for Bayer Leverkusen star Moussa Diaby- but the Bundesliga club have stated their intention to hold out for a substantial fee for one of their prized assets.
The France international is said to be receptive to holding talks over a move to Tyneside but as things stand the Magpies would have to pay a club record fee to secure his services.
United’s interest in a deal remains alive, but there are also believed to be drawing up a list of possible alternatives as Eddie Howe looks to add further quality to his options at the top end of the pitch.
Watford winger Ismaila Sarr remains of interest following the Hornets relegation from the Premier League and Sky Sports have reported the Magpies have made contact with Everton over a possible move for Anthony Gordon.
Barcelona star Memphis Depay and PSV Eindhoven’s England Under-21 international Noni Madueke have also been linked with a move to St James Park in recent weeks.
Hudson-Odoi is now reportedly under consideration according to reports emanating from England, as the three-time capped England international continues to be linked with a move away from Chelsea.
