Author of a brilliant first part of the season, Newcastle wants to give itself the means to grab a place for the next edition of the Champions League. Third in the Premier League, one point behind Manchester City and nine behind Arsenal, the club coached by Eddie Howe is considering taking action during this winter transfer window. With this in mind, an English media understands that the Magpies are eyeing several players from Chelsea, who have just struck a blow on the transfer market by securing the services of Mykhailo Mudryk, the attacking midfielder of Shakhtar Donetsk, for 100 million euros bonus included.

If we refer to the information of the Telegram, the formation based in St James’ Park think of an arrival of Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Hakim Ziyech, as many players as the Blues can be tempted to yield in the coming days. Under contract until June 2025, the first city has played 24 games in all competitions this season, but the 22-year-old English midfielder has only eight Premier League starts under Thomas Tuchel and now Graham Potter. For his part, his English compatriot participated in 20 meetings in 2022-2023.

The 26-year-old’s lease runs until June 2024. Finally, the future of the Moroccan attacking midfielder, under contract until June 2025 with the Blues, is completely unclear. Decisive passer for Kai Havertz against Crystal Palace (1-0), Sunday in the Premier League, the Atlas Lion has only started three league games. A time tipped to repatriate him, Ajax Amsterdam said no to his return. What give hope to Newcastle, especially since the price asked by the Londoners will probably not be very substantial for a player who has been losing momentum for a few months.
