Newcastle United reportedly remain keen on talented playmaker ahead of summer window

Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern have a number of concerns as they head into the final stretch of the season, however, they will be pleased with the rumours of transfer activity coming out of the club.

The Magpies locals will be looking for the club to continue with their fine form at the weekend, having lost just two of their ten league matches in 2018, and ensuring they beat the drop back to the Championship.

Should the Toon Army stay up, they will be in a better position to keep Rafa Benitez at the helm, but the Spaniard has already been making plans on potential transfer targets in the summer, with Italian media publication Tutto Mercato Web claiming they are interested in Dennis Praet.

The Belgium international has been on the radar for Newcastle for some time and he has continued to impress for Serie A side Sampdoria, which is keeping the Magpies keen on trying to acquire him this summer. The club will need to stump up an offer in the region of 26million euro if they are to lure the 23-year-old from Italy.

The Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be pleased to be linked with another move for Praet and will be hoping Premier League survival will help them bring him to St James’ Park in the summer. The locals will also be expecting more transfer activity from the club and hope the funds will be available to make those deals happen!
