Newcastle make ‘official €35M bid’ to sign 24yr old this week

On July 27th, TuttoMercatoWeb reported Newcastle United have initiated contact and also collected information about Galatasaray star Nicolò Zaniolo.

According to Takvim, clubs from England, Germany and Saudi Arabia have all lined up to sign the winger this summer.

Newcastle and RB Leipzig are named as the Italy international’s suitors from Europe.

He managed five goals and an assist from 12 matches since arriving at the Istanbul club from AS Roma in January.

Zaniolo’s displays have convinced the Magpies, the Bundesliga side and Al-Hilal as it’s said the trio are expected to knock on Galatasaray’s door with ‘official offers’ this week.

Takvim make no mention of the fee Newcastle, Leipzig and the Saudi Arabian club would offer but state Roma are entitled to receive 20% of the fee from the 24-year-old’s future sale.

Over at Sabah, they focus only on Newcastle’s interest in the player. They say the Premier League side are ‘ready to pay’ €35m to take Zaniolo away from Galatasaray and are also trying to persuade him to join them.

Eddie Howe’s side have signed Sandro Tonali from AC Milan earlier in this window and are now working to take his compatriot.
