Newcastle United are keen on a move for Atalanta left-back Robin Gosens and have already discussed a transfer with the player’s agent, 90min can confirm.
The Magpies threw their hat in the ring for Frenchman Lucas Digne but failed to convince the player, who chose to join Aston Villa in a £ 25m deal from Everton instead.
Eddie Howe still wants to strengthen the left-back and sources have confirmed for 90 minutes that Newcastle have reached out to Gosen’s camp to measure his interest in a move, and they have liked the response from the German.
Gosens would consider a move to Newcastle, which has promised to give him a huge salary increase from what he is currently taking home in Italy, but convincing Atalanta to sell will be another matter.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s team is fourth in the Serie A table and in the middle of a real battle for the Champions League qualifier, and does not want to lose players of Gosen’s caliber at this time of the season.

Instead, Atalanta want to welcome Gosens back into the fold after a long period on the sidelines caused by a nasty hoarding injury. They believe the 27-year-old’s return would boost their hopes of securing a place in Europe’s top table, and are prepared to try to price Newcastle off a move.
That’s easier said than done given the money at Newcastle’s disposal, and it’s likely that Atalanta will have a sweet spot in mind when it comes to a fee – after all, Gosens has only 18 months left on his contract.
Toon boss Howe has already brought in Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood to boost his team’s hopes for Premier League survival, and there are plans for a left-back, center-back, central midfielder and another striker to come in before the window closes.
Further talks are planned with Sevilla over a deal for defender Diego Carlos, for which the Magpies will have to hand over £ 40 million to sign.
