Bayern Munich midfielder Niklas Sule is open to the idea of joining Newcastle United after exploratory talks with the Magpies.
The new owners of St James’ Park are keen to show their money during the upcoming transfer windows and have looked at many possible targets from around the world.
Sources have confirmed for 90min that Newcastle are one of several Premier League teams that have spoken to the agents of the upcoming free agent Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona, and Christian Falk has now added Sule’s name to the list.
Like Dembele, Sule is approaching the last six months of his contract and has been tipped to leave the Allianz Arena for a while now, with many English teams keeping a close eye on the situation.
Now in a position to compete with the big boys financially, Newcastle are believed to have reached out to Sule’s representatives in October and were left with the impression that the midfielder is fascinated by what is happening at St James’ Park.
26-year-old Sule, an almost permanent start for both Bayern and Germany, has seen talks about a new contract suspension in recent months.
Chelsea are monitoring the situation as they prepare for Bayern’s attempt to land Antonio Rudiger next summer, but Newcastle have now thrown their hats into the ring and appear to have a decent shot to convince Sule to make the move.
Still without a permanent manager or sporting director, sources close to Newcastle admit they can not begin concrete negotiations on new signings, but those in charge are keen to explore all of their options as soon as possible to try to speed things up when the new manager is introduced.
Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is set to hold more talks with the club in the coming days after Villarreal boss Unai Emery publicly ruled himself out of the move.
