With its colossal new means, Newcastle wants to hit hard by recruiting many players in the next mercatos. Paris Saint-Germain defender Abdou Diallo is one of the tracks studied by the Magpies.
After Icardi, Newcastle could try their luck for Diallo
Acquired by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, Newcastle is preparing an overhaul of its team. 19th in the Premier League, the English club wants to strengthen in all lines to increase the quality of a workforce that is currently not in line with the great ambitions of the new owners. For this, the Magpies intend to animate the next two mercatos and multiply the tracks in this direction.
Newcastle think Diallo
In view of the names mentioned, the English club has a first idea in mind: targeting players lacking playing time in the big clubs. This is for example the case of Dean Henderson, Donny Van de Beek and Jesse Lingard Manchester United, Eden Hazard at Real Madrid or Philippe Coutinho at FC Barcelona, all associated with Newcastle in recent weeks. This Tuesday, it is the turn of the Parisian Abdou Diallo (25).
After having already tried his luck, without success, for the Parisian striker Mauro Icardi, the English club is interested this time closely at the defender of Paris Saint-Germain, according to Foot Mercato. The former Borussia Dortmund player has the advantage of being able to play in central defense and on the left side, which may appeal to new Toons boss Eddie Howe. In addition, Newcastle probably thinks they can convince PSG to drop an element that is not titular and plays little in recent weeks. Indeed, he has only taken part in two of the last eleven games played by his team.
Diallo is in no rush to leave
Despite this shorter playing time, the native of Tours remains an appreciated element in Paris. His versatility is invaluable and Parisian coach Mauricio Pochettino knows he can count on him to compensate for absences in the defensive sector. For his part, the Senegalese international is still in the French capital, where his contract runs until June 2024, and he will have the opportunity to play matches during the season in view of the busy schedule that awaits the Parisians. In the event of an offensive, will Newcastle find good arguments to convince him to rally the north of England? Case to follow …
