Football Transfer Centre

Newcastle United have identified Ross Barkley as a potential transfer target for next month, The Mirror claims.

The England international is currently a squad player with the Blues, and he has been touted to leave on loan.

Everton are reportedly interested in re-signing him, but they are set to face stiff competition from the Magpies.

The Tyneside outfit are expected to spend big in the transfer market after their takeover by a Saudi-led consortium.

The Magpies are open to bolstering every department in the squad, but their options could be limited next month.

The club are currently lying 19th in the league standings, and reports claim that they may struggle to attract top talent due to this.

Eddie Howe's side are only two points adrift of safety, but teams above have games in hand due to Covid-19 postponements.

The Magpies are not close to signing anyone, but they are planning bids. Roma's Jordan Veretout is also on their radar.
