TOP STORY: Newcastle plan raid for Chelsea trio
Newcastle United are considering a triple swoop for Chelsea stars Conor Gallagher, Hakim Ziyech and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, according to the Telegraph.
Newcastle are keen to bolster their midfield options this January, even more so after star man Bruno Guimaraes picked up an injury that could rule him out for the next couple of weeks.
Gallagher, 22, is believed to be the Magpies’ main target.
All three Blues players have found regular minutes difficult to come by this season under Graham Potter, and that situation seems unlikely to change following recent arrivals at the west London club.
Chelsea have so far added Mykhailo Mudryk, Andrey Santos, David Fofana and Joao Felix (loan) to their attacking options this month.
Of the three players on Newcastle’s wanted list, Chelsea seem most willing to part with Ziyech, 29, probably because they have to lose two non-homegrown players from their Champions League squad. However, they’re concerned about letting Gallagher and Loftus-Cheek (26) leave with so many injuries to other midfielders at the club.
Newcastle are also reportedly considering moves for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay and Wolverhampton Wanderers lynchpin Ruben Neves.
