Newcastle transfer news: Inter could move for Robin Gosens this summer

If Newcastle want to sign Robin Gosens, they might need to move now rather than in the summer transfer window.

The Germany international has been linked with a move to St James’ Park in recent days. Despite still being injured having not played since September, the Magpies have reportedly made an offer for the 27-year-old.

Sky Italia first claimed that Gosens had agreed a deal, although that may have been premature. Other reports have stated that he could quadruple his wages if he leaves Atalanta for Newcastle.

Gosens would be a high profile addition for the Magpies, without being a Hollywood signing. The Serie A star played almost every minute of Germany’s Euro 2020 campaign, scoring one goal.

He would be a huge improvement on what we currently have on the left of defence, and would give us two fullbacks with real attacking intent alongside Kieran Trippier.

Could injury hinder Robin Gosens’ January transfer hopes?

However, if he does sign he might not make his debut for a while. That’s because he’s currently out of action with a hamstring injury. Gosens isn’t expected to return until mid-February.

Hopefully that doesn’t put Newcastle off making a move this month though, as they could face competition in the summer.

That’s because the Daily Express claim that Inter Milan could make a move for him at the end of the current season. Inter are currently top of Serie A, looking to secure back-to-back league titles.

That could make a move there very enticing for Gosens, compared to the uncertainty of Newcastle. While we do have a lot of cash thanks to our new owners, it’s completely unknown how long it will take us to reach the top of the Premier League – if at all. And if our current form continues, we won’t be in the Premier League next season…

Gosens is reportedly interested in joining Newcastle this month. Therefore, we must not hesitate and potentially delay the deal. If we do, we could give ourselves unnecessary competition for his signature.
