Newcastle chiefs ready to spend big this summer; Prem talent targeted

Newcastle United chiefs are ready to spend big this summer on Premier League talent.

The Mirror says Newcastle have identified needs at centre-back, defensive midfield and centre-forward but are also in the market for a new young goalkeeper.

After being linked with Manchester United, Leeds' Kalvin Phillips has now been earmarked to anchor the Toon midfield, alongside Brighton stalwart Yves Bissouma.

Another United target Darwin Nunez, who scored for Benfica against Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday, is firmly on Newcastle's radar.

Everton hitman and England international Dominic Calvert-Lewin is another attacker piquing Newcastle's interest ahead of the summer.

Howe is also keen to reunite with Bournemouth defender and former workmate Lloyd Kelly.

The Magpies are also monitoring the availability of English goalkeeping duo Dean Henderson (Manchester United) and Sam Johnstone (West Brom), who could provide competition for number one Martin Dubravka.
