Newcastle Lead Race To Sign In-Demand Giant Goalkeeper


We will be hearing lots of players Newcastle are interested in signing this summer, and some reports may even be accurate.

The Sun on Sunday are reporting that Newcastle are keen to sign 21-year-old Croatian goalkeeper Karlo Letica.

Letica stands 6ft 7ins tall and plays for Hajduk Split and is a Croatian U21 International.

The report is that Newcastle are in the lead to sign the goalkeeper who Rafa thinks will need time before he is ready for the first team.

Karlo Latica – 21-year-old 6ft 7ins goalkeeper

The goalkeeper is ambitious and wants to play regular first-team football so that could be a problem unless Newcastle get him in and then lend him out to a club for next season to get some first-team experience.

Maybe a Championship club.

Letica is valued at £8M, and it’s a good question if Rafa will have the funds this summer to buy a player like Letica for the future.

The goalkeeper has already turned down advances from Manchester United and Real Madrid, so he is a highly rated young goalkeeper.

He has only been in the first team at Hajduk Split since December and has appeared 18 times, but he has been drawing rave reviews with his performances.

Croatian boss Zlatko Dalic is also considering taking him to the World Cup in Russia this summer.

Newcastle are likely to sign goalkeeper Martin Dubravka this summer, and we also have Rob Elliot, Karl Darlow, and England U21  International Freddie Woodman at the club.

What do you think?

    Cyprus asks if Merino was fit then says he should have been on at half time. If he’d read NUFC.com he’d have seen that he took a knock at Everton and was ruled out.

    If we want him it might be worth moving fast before the world cup. A good young goalie will be snapped up fast. Rafa could be on a major clear out and maybe even dupravka might not be signed although 4mill is great value. I think we are overrating him a little but he is still a serious upgrade.

    Jiblets,
    Judging by the amount of hearts it’s received for the position, you’ve definitely earned the title of blog pr!ck, so well done there.
    I was just pointing out that a well informed and popular website give daily if not hourly updates on players availability etc.

    Goalkeepers seem to be a problem for Rafa – he just can’t get one he wants/likes.

    Poor again from our lads, not convinced by Dubravca , Slimani no better than Mitro and older too. Would only try and keep Kenedy. There needs to be a huge clearout in the summer but who will buy our cast offs?

    The Most Important signing is going to be RAFA himself ! Prefer to wait till he is still with us Deffo next year! Both Leicester and Arsenal are still sniffing around!
