Newcastle jump into battle for Roma fullback Emerson Palmeiri

Newcastle United have jumped into the battle for Roma fullback Emerson Palmeiri.

TMW says the Brazilian has been a long-term target for Liverpool and is interesting Juventus.

However, both clubs have pulled back in recent weeks over Emerson's fitness concerns.

In contrast, Newcastle have made contact with Roma to register their interest ahead of the January market.

Toon boss Rafa Benitez is in the market for a top class fullback signing and Emerson fits the bill.
