A report from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport has suggested that Newcastle United could soon confirm their interest in Arkadiusz Milik with a bid.
The Magpies sprung into life in the transfer market at the start of the month. Steve Bruce has welcomed Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Jamal Lewis into his ranks in September.
It has been a mixed start to the campaign for Newcastle. They beat West Ham on the opening day. But they were comfortably beaten at the weekend by Brighton.
And that defeat has perhaps prompted the Magpies to look at potentially finishing the window in style.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Newcastle could make a bid for Milik. It is suggested that they made enquiries for the 26-year-old earlier in the window.
TBR View: Milik would be an outstanding signing for Newcastle
It would be an incredible statement of intent if Newcastle could sign Milik. In truth however, it would be little surprise if many Magpies fans were refusing to get carried away at this stage.
Newcastle strengthened their forward line with Wilson’s arrival. So it would also make sense if Bruce had other priorities before the deadline passes.
But if there was any way Milik could be signed, it would be a remarkable piece of business. He has scored 38 goals in 93 league games for one of Serie A’s biggest clubs. He has also bagged eight goals in the Champions League during his career.
