According to reports in Italy, Martin Dubravka has emerged as a target for Italian champions Juventus as they seek a backup goalkeeper for Wojciech Szczęsny.
The Polish international has stepped into the breach after Gianluigi Buffon continued his search for a Champions League title by joining Paris Saint Germain in the summer and the Old Lady are reportedly looking for a number two.
Dubravka has been a revelation since joining the Magpies in January but swapping a relegation battle in black and white stripes for even a bit-part role in the same colours may be too much to resist.
But the uncertain future of Manchester United ace David de Gea could perhaps offer Newcastle a boost to their hopes of keeping their number one at the club beyond the next transfer window.
The Mirror report that the Spaniard’s dwindling contract has attracted the attention of Juventus among others as they look to take advantage of the crisis building once more around Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
If they were to land De Gea, Szczęsny would surely reprise the backup role he has taken on for most of his time in Italy, meaning there would be little appeal in signing Dubravka.
