Report: Newcastle target Hamza Choudhury open to move
Newcastle United have reignited their interest in Hamza Choudhury, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Leicester City midfielder is open to moving this summer.
The Magpies are looking to build on what has been a superb end to the campaign. Steve Bruce’s men have won four of their last seven. They have also only lost three of the last 12.
Of course, the club can surely not afford to ignore how much of the campaign had gone. There were certainly times when the Magpies were drifting towards the bottom three.
So the fans will be hoping to see some statements of intent this summer. Unfortunately, the Daily Mail reports that Bruce is set to be handed a limited budget.
One of the players on his radar is Choudhury, with the Mail reporting that he wanted the Leicester man in January.
The Daily Mail notes that the 23-year-old is open to leaving the Foxes having struggled for game-time. He has only made four starts in the Premier League this season.
TBR View: Joe Willock’s form makes it difficult to write Choudhury off amid parallels
Choudhury has not had the easiest time at the King Power Stadium. But given how Joe Willock’s loan has played out, it seems entirely possible that Choudhury could prove to be an inspired signing if he moves to Tyneside.
Like Choudhury at Leicester, Willock was on the periphery of the Arsenal ranks before his switch.
The talent was clearly there, but there seemed to be doubts about whether he would kick on.
But Willock has definitely kicked on in some style. So perhaps that will leave Newcastle feeling optimistic should they manage to land Choudhury this summer.
