Newcastle step up talks for £30M Lille defender Sven Botman

Newcastle have stepped up talks for Lille defender Sven Botman.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle have begun negotiations with Lille over a £30m deal for Botman.

The Dutch centre back has been identified as a key signing for Newcastle's project and he has shown a willingness to come but much depends on whether Lille will let him go in this window.

AC Milan have also shown interest in the 21-year old as they look for a replacement for Simon Kjaer but Lille's valuation makes a deal difficult for them.

Botman is understood to be keen to come and talks intensified on Wednesday as Newcastle strive to find an agreement with Lille.
