Another player that is said to be interesting Newcastle United is Croatian midfielder Luka Modric, according to the Sun today.
Luka Modric – central midfield playmaker or left winger
The 22 year-old Zadar, Croatian born playmaker is said to be in the Â£15M transfer bracket by his club Dinamo Zagreb.
All these players Newcastle are being linked with in January, are not all targets for this month, but we can get a good idea of some of the players Keegan and his staff have identified as potential new recruits in the summer.
It’s far better to start working on the transfers of these players now, and in the next few months, rather than wait until the end of the season before anything is done.
But Modric looks a particularly good player, and he is also young, so can also certainly improve in the future. He can play central midfield or out wide on the left.
He has appeared 84 times for Dinamo Zagreb since 2005, and scored 22 goals. Luka has represented his country Croatia 22 times since 2005, and scored 3 goals.
He stand just under 5’9â€ tall, and has previously played for Croatian club, Inter ZapreÅ¡iÄ‡ and Bosnian club Zrinjski Mostar.
