Report: Club now willing to sell ‘exceptional’ £26m Tottenham target, Newcastle United have been eyeing move for months
Inter Milan are now willing to sell reported Tottenham Hotspur target Hakan Calhanoglu, with CalcioMercato reporting that Newcastle United have been eyeing a move for the player in recent months.
But it seems that Newcastle have also set their sights on the midfielder and he could become available in January.
Inter willing to sell Calhanoglu
The 28-year-old could end up being sold as early as January and Inter value the player at just under £26 million.
The Turkey international apparently has several admirers in the Premier League, one of them being Newcastle.
Eddie Howe’s men have apparently set their sights on the midfielder in recent months.
Simone Inzaghi’s men would not find it difficult to move the player on due to his excellent performances in Serie A last season, CalcioMercato notes.
Calhanoglu has already made seven appearances under Inzaghi this season, scoring and assisting once.
He was one of the Nerazzurri’s most productive outlets last season too as he registered eight goals and 13 assists.
Newcastle have been on the lookout for a creative midfielder and saw bids knocked back for James Maddison over the summer.
Calhanoglu has enjoyed a decent career so far having won trophies in Italy and Germany.
He would certainly go a long way to filling the need for a creative midfielder at Newcastle and is an excellent set-piece taker.
Spurs have reportedly shown an interest in the player too and Antonio Conte’s men are also in need of a midfielder like Calhanoglu.
If the player does become available as soon as January, he could be an attractive option for many clubs.
