The Sun are reporting that Rafa Benitez of Newcastle wants to sign Manchester City winger Javairo Dilrosun this summer.
The 19-year-old left-winger can play on either wing and in attacking midfield, and he seems to be seeing out his contract at City, with new terms not being able to be agreed between the player and club.
Rafa will try to bring in some top free agents this summer and now is the time to go after them since other clubs will also be after them.

The news is that other clubs such as Benfica, Swansea, and Derby are after him with Rafa offering £1M for him in compensation and if we can get him through the door he will join the U23 squad.
Dilrosun was born in Holland, and he has played for all the Netherlands Youth sides through the U19 level and is highly thought of at City.
Our U23 team has had maybe their worst season for a very long time, and Rafa has let a number of the players leave this summer when their contracts run out.
Players like Dilrosun are the type we need, and then the challenge is to turn them into first-team players of the future.
