Newcastle United are now ready to make a move for Yannick Sommer after they reportedly dropped interest in Dean Henderson.
Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer is wanted by Newcastle after they suffered a transfer blow for Manchester United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson.
The Magpies are looking into Yannick Sommer as they would prefer him over Dean Henderson. Newcastle United are looking to solve their recent trouble between the sticks, due to inconsistent performances from Dubravka.
The Slovenian international who arrived from Sparta Prague in 2018 in a loan deal worth €500,000, has been fairly decent in goal for Magpies. Now, they want a long-term solution and they are readying a move for the Switzerland international.
Dean Henderson has been strongly linked with a move to Newcastle after failing to nail a starting spot in Manchester United’s first eleven. Futballnews received a report that Eddie Howe has dropped interest in him and would rather want the club to pursue Yannick Sommer.
A deal for summer is more feasible because his contract will be expiring in the summer of 2023. Yannick Sommer, who spent his boyhood days with Basel, has played a total number of 324 games for Borrusia Monchengladbach, and has also racked up 73 international caps to his name.
He has been a good shot stopper since making his debut in 2012 and also helped his national side; Switzerland beat France on penalties in Euros 2020.
This news will make Dean Henderson reconsider his future again at Manchester United. His chances of beating David De Gea to the number 1 spot remains very slim; as their new boss, Erik Ten Hag is a huge admirer of the Spanish international. This has also jeopardized his starting role in the Three Lions squad, as Aaron Ramsdale is now preferred to start ahead of him.
Yannick Sommer no doubt will prove to be a very good signing for Newcastle as they look to take the Premier League by storm next season due to their recent takeover by the Saudi Group, which has an estimated net worth of $320billion.
A fee of around $25m should be enough to seal the deal to bring Sommer over to England.
