Newcastle: Magpies could sign Yannick Carrasco in January - Newcastle United News

Newcastle United could be interested in signing Atletico Madrid midfielder Yannick Carrasco in the January transfer window, according to a new report.

The Lowdown: Carrasco brilliant for Atletico

The 29-year-old has been a key part of Atletico’s success under Diego Simeone over the years, making 236 appearances in total for the La Liga giants.

Carrasco’s versatility, energy and quality have always made him an effective performer and he even scored in the 2016 Champions League final against Real Madrid.

With Newcastle looking to make high-profile signings, it looks as though the Belgian could be an option.

The Latest: Newcastle could make move

According to Mundo Deportivo [via Sport Witness], Carrasco ‘could have gone’ to Newcastle during the summer but a move failed to materialise.

Now, unnamed Premier League clubs are ‘still very interested’ in signing him, suggesting the Magpies could be in the mix.

The Verdict: Brilliant potential signing

Carrasco could be a superb addition by Newcastle if their interest is genuine, with the Belgium international possessing huge experience and enjoying great success in his career.

The midfielder has tasted La Liga and Europa League glory with Atletico, while 59 caps during a golden generation for Belgium also highlights his ability.

Carrasco would bring with him a winning mentality that could improve those around and he is at an age where he should still be at his best for two or three years.
