Newcastle United are expected to make a splash in the upcoming summer transfer window and continue the transformation of their squad, which began in January and has had a huge impact on their form over the past few months, as The Magpies have been one of the most in-form teams in all of Europe since the turn of the year.
Eddie Howe has already shown that he is the right man for the job by taking a side that was struggling in the relegation zone for months to the top half of the Premier League table in a short span of time.
Thus, one would hope that the club back Howe in the upcoming summer transfer window and all indications till now do suggest that that is what they plan to do.
Newcastle United have been linked with some of the most exciting players all over Europe in recent months and as reported by Kicker, they are a serious option for Moussa Diaby. The Bayer Leverkusen star is expected to leave in the summer and the Bundesliga club are believed to be looking for a transfer fee over €50 million.
Newcastle United are now serious option for Bundesliga star
Diaby has been one of the standout players in the Bundesliga recently and signing him would be considered as a major coup on the part of Newcastle United.
He is very highly-rated and has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal, West Ham United and Manchester United in recent times.
It remains to be seen what the future holds but Newcastle United seem to be in the race for the French winger.
It is not hard to see why there is so much interest in his signature when you consider the numbers he has been putting up this season. According to stats from Transfermarkt, Diaby has scored 16 goals and provided 13 assists in 40 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen across all competitions in this campaign.
