Newcastle eyeing a double-transfer move .
Newcastle United goalkeeper Matz Sels and defender Chancel Mbemba have been linked with a move to Anderlecht. Sport Witness quote Het Laatste News in saying that the Belgian club were initially interested in Sels, who has enjoyed a successful loan spell with them this season. However, the Magpies have offered Mbemba as well, who moved to Tyneside from the Brussels-based club in 2015. Sels signed a five-year contract when he moved to Newcastle two years ago but struggled in his first season and was subsequently loaned to Anderlecht for the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign. Competition is rife for the goalkeeping position at the Toon, with Martin Dubravka joining in January and Karl Darlow ad Rob Elliott also on the books. Mbemba also signed a five-year deal when he joined the year previous to Sels but made just nine Premier League appearances this season as he failed to dislodge Jamaal Lascelles and Florian Lejeune as first-choice centre-backs. Newcastle bosses reportedly want €8m for the pair, but with Anderlecht not willing to pay that much, they could just make a move for Sels.
