Report: Newcastle United could go and buy 'special' PL midfielder for £25m today

Newcastle United have been linked a host of new players as the transfer deadline approaches.

Eddie Howe’s side have strengthened in several areas this summer.

However, a report from I News suggests they could have a chance to bring in a midfielder today.

The Magpies have been linked with several players in this position.

Eddie Howe’s side have also considered Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

However, I News believes Newcastle could go and buy Leicester City star Youri Tielemans today.

And Eddie Howe’s side have been quoted £25m for the playmaker.

Tielemans has been subject to plenty of speculation this summer.

The Belgian international has regularly been linked with a move to Arsenal.

However, Mikel Arteta’s side have yet to bid for the 25-year-old.

Newcastle could buy Tielemans today

Once described as a ‘special’ player, Tielemans would be a very exciting signing for Newcastle.

Tielemans has already earned more than 50 caps for Belgium, and will almost certainly go to the World Cup in November.

He’s also a big game player, scoring the only goal when Leicester beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final in 2021.

Tielemans might have trouble splitting up the effective Brazilian combination of Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton in midfield.

However, he could be seen as an upgrade on Joe Willock, and allows Howe to rotate among stronger midfield options.

Newcastle buying Tielemans today for £25m from a Premier League rival would signal how far the Magpies have come.

Leicester have started the season poorly, and haven’t been able to convince Tielemans to stay at the King Power Stadium.

Moving to Newcastle doesn’t even offer Tielemans an immediate return to European football.

However, Newcastle’s ambition is hard to ignore, and if they try and buy Tielemans today, the Belgian could be easily convinced to join.
