Report: Newcastle watch £10m star and Sweden international in the same game

The Chronicle have claimed that Newcastle United placed scouts at the KCOM Stadium on Wednesday as Hull City took on French side Amiens, which the latter won 2-0. The Toon had eyes on two players.

It is believed that Hull City winger Bowen is a target for Steve Bruce after the new Toon manager brought him to Hull from Hereford as a teenager. Now 22, Bowen scored 22 times for Hull last season despite playing on the left.

The Chronicle also claimed in a recent report that Bowen could leave Hull for just £10million, after he entered the final 12 months of his contract with the Championship side. Now, a move to Newcastle looks even likelier.

The latest report says Newcastle keeping tabs on Bowen as his side lost 2-0 to Amiens, but that talent spotters were also watching Amiens right-back Emil Krafth – who some may remember from the 2018 World Cup.


Krafth was crucial to Sweden’s campaign and started against England in the quarter-finals, before the Three Lions won 2-0. Bruce is looking to bring in competition for DeAndre Yedlin and Krafth could be on his agenda.

TBR’s view – Bowen and Krafth Newcastle’s new-look right flank?

Newcastle are yet to replace the loss of Ayoze Perez who joined Leicester City for £30million, though they have spent a club-record fee on Joelinton – who is expected to replace Salomon Rondon up front.

Allan Saint-Maximin is likely to be the next player through the door, but a move is yet to be completed and Bowen could join Newcastle this summer. Alongside Krafth, the Toon could have a new right-sided flank.

Krafth would be a very solid signing and would certainly be good competition for Yedlin. It is difficult to pick a winner from the two defenders, though.
