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.
The Magpies have been linked with several players in this position.
And Eddie Howe’s side have been quoted £25m for the playmaker.
Tielemans has been subject to plenty of speculation this summer.
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.
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.
