Report shares Newcastle asking price for Everton and Southampton target Sean Longstaff
Everton and Southampton would have to pay £10 million to lure Sean Longstaff away from Newcastle United before the end of the summer transfer window, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
Longstaff has endured a tough couple of years on Tyneside. It seems a long time ago that the Magpies were setting a £50 million asking price with Manchester United keen (Telegraph).
It now appears that he will be on the way out of St James’ Park sooner or later.
The Daily Mail reports that Longstaff’s terms expire next summer. And there is apparently no talk of the 23-year-old signing a new deal.
According to a recent report from The Athletic, Everton have held initial discussions to sign Longstaff. Of course, Rafa Benitez knows the midfielder from his time with the Magpies.
And the Daily Mail suggests that the Toffees do indeed want Longstaff. Meanwhile, the Saints are also admirers.
And the Mail reports that Newcastle have set an asking price of just £10 million.
Sean Longstaff worth the gamble for Everton and Southampton at £10 million
Longstaff has probably lost his way in more recent times. And some at Everton and Southampton may have reservations about his asking price.
But at £10 million, he is arguably worth a gamble for either.
The Toffees have not spent big this summer. And they could do with further reinforcements in the middle of the park.
Meanwhile, it has been a difficult window at St Mary’s. So signing a player with Longstaff’s potential would arguably be a positive move for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
