Good morning football fans
Eddie Howe’s hopes of signing a centre-back have been handed a boost as Newcastle’s two main rivals back off in the pursuit of James Tarkowski.
Eddie Howe wants the powerful Burnley centre-half to join his survival fight and will make an offer that tempts the Clarets to let him follow Chris Wood to the Toon.
Burnley are willing to take a bid and the Geordies are the only horse in the race as West Ham are now looking elsewhere, while Leicester focus on a short-term loan solution.
Elsewhere Aaron Ramsey is claimed to be nearing a return to the Premier League.
Juventus boss Max Allegri confirmed: “Aaron’s not with the team as he’s set to leave the club.”
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed talks are ongoing on a potential return to the Premier League.
And SunSport can exclusively report Burnley are in talks over a shock loan move for the former Arsenal man.
Arsenal are said to be growing tired in their chase of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The Gunners have reportedly ‘set a deadline’ for Vlahovic to decide whether he wants to join them in a £66million deal.
The Premier League club are growing frustrated by the long-running saga and La Republicca claims they have demanded an answer from the hotshot by ‘halfway through next week’.
