There’s a report in Italy in Tutto Mercato Web (TMW), that Newcastle are in a battle with both Paris Saint-Germain and Sampdoria for the signature of 20 year-old Turkish midfielder Taylan Antalyali.
It seems the Turkish U19 central midfielder is getting a lot of attention, and he can play in either an attacking role or as the holding midfielder in the center of the park.
Taylan Antalyali – 20 year-old Turkish U19 midfielder
He is one of the young players Newcastle want to bring in this summer, and he will probably be one for the future, but if he’s good enough he will get his chance in Steve McClaren’s side next season.
Antalyali made his professional debut back in May, 2012 for Bursaspor against Kasimpasa, Istanbul as a 17 year-old and he played a total of 41 games for them with one goal.
The youngster joined Genclerbirligi Ankara from Bursaspor only last summer, and he has attracted the interest of clubs including Newcastle.
He is up for sale for about £1M with his contract at Genclerbirligi running through the summer of 2018.
As we said, Newcastle will continue to bring in these younger players who look good at their age, and we’ll see if Newcastle can be successful in bringing Taylan to Tyneside this summer.
