Newcastle considering move for Harry Arter

Newcastle United are continuing to consider making movements this summer as Rafa Benitez looks to improve his squad.

The Magpies boss has already signed a handful of players to help add quality and depth to his side, but a proven Premier League player looks to be on his radar.

According to a report in The Sun, Newcastle are thought to be keen on landing Harry Arter from AFC Bournemouth. The 28-year-old is looking to get first-team football and could decide to quit the Cherries as it looks unlikely he will be offered it at the Vitality Stadium.

The media outlet are claiming it will cost in the region of £10million to take Arter away from the south coast.

The Republic of Ireland star is not thought to be short of possible suitors, with Stoke City, Cardiff City and Middlesbrough all credited with holding an interest in the midfielder, however, the Magpies will be hoping they can beat the competition for him.

The Verdict:

There is no doubt that Arter could offer Newcastle something in the middle of the field, however, it could be a strange addition.

Benitez’s side does not lack options in central midfield and the Republic of Ireland international would not be guaranteed a starting place in the side.

Also, it remains to be seen if Newcastle will pay a fee of around £10m for the 27-year-old, considering their spending has been fairly limited so far this summer.
