Newcastle United will likely head into the January transfer window wanting to add a couple of new additions to their squad.
Rafa Benitez’s side have been performing well in the Premier League as of late, however, it is believed the Spaniard would be keen on bolstering certain areas of his squad next month.
One area is in defence, with the left-back position thought to be severely lacking options, and it appears that the Magpies have identified a potential target to solve that concern.
The Holland international has been impressing for the Bundesliga side this season, which has led to other clubs taking note, with AS Roma thought to be keen on the 24-year-old.
It is suggested that Frankfurt will be reluctant to let Willems go in January, although there is a chance he will leave should they be able to receive more than the initial £4.5million they paid for him.
Willems could be a great addition for Newcastle in January, as he would certainly give Benitez another option in his backline.
However, as mentioned, the Premier League outfit may find themselves involved in a transfer battle for his signature, whilst striking a deal with Frankfurt will not be an easy task either.
