Newcastle chase 15-goal Bundesliga striker

  Newcastle chase 15-goal Bundesliga striker Newcastle are reportedly interested in Hannover forward Niclas Füllkrug this summer, according to German sources. The 25-year old striker has been in fine form for the club this season, scoring 15 goals and assisting three in the Bundesliga, and has caught the eye of several Premier League and Championship clubs. According to German outlet Bild, as reported by Sport Witness, Watford, Leicester City and newly promoted Cardiff are ready to rival the Magpies for Füllkrug’s signature, while fellow second-flight clubs Aston Villa and Fulham are also keen. The English sides will face competition from Germany, with fellow Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg said to be keen in the former Germany Under-20s international. Füllkrug has no release clause and with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2020, Hannover can demand whatever they so please. Bild claim that the club could get ‘double figures’ for their star – a price tag likely to be affordable by all the aforementioned English clubs.

The Spaniard is currently working on Pep Guardiola’s coaching team at Manchester City. Nagelsmann is stated to be a manager who the Gunners are contemplating a swoop for, also, with the young German having led Hoffenheim to yet another excellent season in the Bundesliga.

Arsenal face competition from Bundesliga side for Brazilian winger .
Arsenal will face competition from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig for the signature of Chelsea winger Kenedy this summer. Goal reports that Leipzig and Arsenal are leading the race to sign the Brazilian, who is facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have been briefly linked with the player, while Newcastle are also keen on a permanent deal but face the prospect of being priced out. The winger was loaned out to the Magpies for the second half of the season when he fell out of favour under Antonio Conte. With the latter closing in on a Chelsea departure, Kenedy may see that as a route back into the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge. Emil Forsberg is being heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, who have been long-term admirers of the Swedish forward. Kenedy could be seen as a direct replacement for the winger, who is being tipped to move on from the Bundesliga outfit this summer.
