Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United have been linked with Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney and Chelsea left-back Marc Cucurella.
Accordingly The TelegraphNewcastle United are keen to sign a left-back and have identified Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney and Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella as potential targets.
The Magpies reportedly believe both Tierney and Cucurella would be keen to “make the move” to St James’ Park in the summer transfer window.
Newcastle want a loan deal for Tierney or Cucurella.
Arsenal would prefer to sell the Scotland international left-back and receive a reasonable transfer fee.
As for Cucurella, Chelsea would prefer to sell the £175,000-a-week (Spotrac)Spain’s international left-back.
Chelsea left-back Marc Cucurella would be expensive for Newcastle United
In our view, Newcastle United would find a deal to sign Marc Cucurella from Chelsea in the summer transfer window very expensive.
Accordingly The TelegraphChelsea paid Brighton and Hove Albion £60million in transfer fees for Cucurella last summer.
The Blues will certainly want to recoup as much, if not all, of that sum as possible.
Would Newcastle really be willing to shell out £60m for a left-back?
Would Cucurella be willing to leave Chelsea after one season?
After all, Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world and a global brand.
The 25-year-old could feel he could be a success with the Blues under Mauricio Pochettino.
Cucurella has made 59 Premier League appearances so far in his career.
The left-back has scored one goal, provided three assists and kept 12 clean sheets in those games.
