Newcastle in advanced talks to sign Tosin Adarabioyo

Newcastle United are progressing well to secure double signings in the summer window at the earliest. 

According to a report from Evening Standard, the Magpies are advancing in talks to sign Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo and Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly on free transfers.

The Magpies need to bolster their defence in the summer window, especially after losing Sven Botman and club captain Jamaal Lascelles to serious knee injuries last month. Both players are expected to miss the start of next season, which means a new signing is necessary.

Newcastle are fighting hard to comply with the PSR guidelines, and signing players on free transfers could save them a lot of money.

Adarabioyo has already informed Fulham that he won’t be renewing his contract at the club. Although he was offered a lucrative deal, the 26-year-old wants to move elsewhere.

The defender could have become one of the highest-paid players at Craven Cottage but he has decided to take the next step in his career. He is an experienced Premier League defender and should seamlessly fit into Eddie Howe’s plans.

Tottenham, Liverpool and AC Milan have also registered interest in Adarabioyo, who has spoken with Newcastle already over a potential move this summer. It appears that the Magpies are leading the race for his signature.

Fulham boss Marco Silva has left him out of the last three matchday squads and didn’t even make the bench in the last three games after the club understood his decision.

Tottenham and AC Milan are also interested in signing Kelly, who has previously played under Howe at Bournemouth. If the Magpies can both these players ahead of other rivals, it would be seen as a massive transfer coup for the club.

In other Newcastle news, the Magpies are ready to sacrifice 30-year-old forward to ease the financial burden.
