Newcastle United: Magpies ‘pressing to close’ Sven Botman deal -Newcastle United News

The Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor has revealed that Newcastle United are now ‘pressing to close a deal’ for Sven Botman.

The Lowdown: Closing in

It has been reported that the St. James’ Park outfit are closing in on a deal for Botman this summer, after failing to sign him in the January transfer window.

They have reopened talks with Lille over a potential move, although will face serious competition from AC Milan among other clubs for his signature.

The Latest: Getting closer…

Taking to Twitter, Taylor has revealed that the North East club are now ‘pressing to close a deal’ for Botman, and have made a new bid for the central defender:

“Newcastle are pressing to close a deal for Sven Botman. New proposal totalling over £30m (including add-ons) submitted. Negotiations with Lille are ongoing. AC Milan & other suitors still in contention but clear appetite from NUFC to get this done after two rejected Jan bids.”

Expanding in his article for The Daily Express, Taylor added that this is the third offer that the Tynesiders have now made for Botman, of whom is Steve Nickson’s ‘top’ defensive target this window.

Of course, it may be difficult for the Magpies to persuade Botman to join them over say Milan, who have just won the Serie A title and can offer him UEFA Champions League football.

However, it looks as if things are now progressing, which will certainly give the Toon Army some encouragement.

The 22-year-old, dubbed a ‘golden boy‘ by his agent Francesco Miniero, would be a statement signing that would really help kickstart their long-term ambitions.
