Having lost Sandro Tonali to a gambling ban, Newcastle United are going to have to buy sort out some sort of transfer for their midfield in January.

They have been linked with many players, including Kalvin Phillips, but it appears the Magpies are looking at Italy once again.

Two players at Atalanta have allegedly appeared on Newcastle’s radar, with those being Teun Koopmeiners and Ederson, and TuttoMercatoWeb have the latest on the situation.

The website focuses primarily on the Brazilian, who only arrived from Salernitana in 2022 for a figure of €21m, and is really starting to find his feet at Alatanta.

His performances have caught the eye of Magpies, who seem to want either him or Koopmeiners in January.

When it comes to Ederson, it’s said ‘there is no shortage of first approaches’, before adding ‘Newcastle are moving’.

However, any attempt to sign the Atalanta player would require a high figure, as TuttoMercatoWeb make it clear that the Serie A side won’t consider talking to any club ‘for less than €40m’.

This stance comes from their strong financial situation and the fact they ‘want to get the most out of their investments’.

Right now, there are ‘no major alarm bells’ ringing in Bergamo, but they are standing ready on the off chance something comes in, wanting to make sure they are not ‘unprepared in the event of monstrous offers’.
