Newcastle United have entered the race for Maxwel Cornet of Burnley and are ready to make a move for the forward.
According to talkSPORT, the Magpies are ready to activate the £17.5m release clause in Cornet’s Clarets contract in order to beat out Premier League suitors.
Everton have had a loan bid for Cornet rejected by Burnley, and have instead signed his teammate Dwight McNeil; while the 25-year-old failed to agree personal terms with Nottingham Forest, resulting in that move collapsing; Chelsea also considered a move for the forward earlier in the transfer window, but have failed to make their interest official with a bid, according to the report.
This would be a great low-cost option for Eddie Howe to strengthen his squad, as the Magpies manager has been looking for a forward all summer with no success.
Several Premier League clubs are interested in Maxwel Cornet.
What other forwards are Newcastle interested in?
Throughout the current transfer window, Newcastle has been linked with a number of other forwards, some of whom appear to have vanished. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ivan Toney are two strikers who were heavily linked with a move to St. James’ Park this summer, according to the Daily Mirror, but nothing came of the interest. According to 90min, Timo Werner, Memphis Depay, and Nicolas Pepe have all been offered to Newcastle in recent weeks, with the Magpies currently weighing their options. In addition to being offered players, Newcastle is said to be interested in Watford duo Emmanuel Dennis and Ismaila Sarr. According to Foot Mercato, the Hornets are willing to let Sarr leave this summer if they receive a bid of around €35 million for the winger, but if Newcastle are going to spend that much money, it would be better to sign Werner or Depay, who can play as a striker and out wide. However, all of this may be moot now, as Howe may be ready to make a move for Cornet very soon.
