Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is keen to increase the competition for places at Newcastle next season.
And Rafa could sign a center-back, full-back, and goalkeeper to shore up the defense.
It looks like we will be bringing in goalkeeper Martin Dubravka permanently – and the deal could even be done this week, with the transfer window opening today.
Rafa has been linked with a move for 24-year-old Swansea City center-back Alfie Mawson.
Alfie Mawson – Rafa interested
With Swansea surprisingly relegated this season some of their top stars will want to leave the south Wales club this summer.
The Mail is reporting there are several Premier League clubs already interested in signing Mawson who had a very good season for the Swans after signing for them from Burnley in the summer of 2016.
In the two years he’s been in Wales he’s played 71 times for the Swans with 7 goals.
Swansea seem willing to sell the defender but the question will e3 what fee they put on the Englishman’s head.
It appears Swansea want as much as £20M for Mawson and that may scare away some clubs – maybe Newcast6el included?
Mawson is already a good player who can become even better under Rafa Benitez’ guidance.
Rafa wants real talent coming into the club this summer, and if Mawson does join us, he will offer real competition at center-back.
He would be a very good signing for us.
