Newcastle United are reportedly in talks with Valencia over the potential signing of Georgian international goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili. The 23-year-old shot-stopper has been a long-term target for the Magpies, and recent reports suggest that he is keen on moving to the Premier League.

Mamardashvili is highly rated by Valencia, who have valued him at around £30 million. His impressive performances have caught the attention of several clubs, but Newcastle are currently leading the race to secure his services. The young goalkeeper's desire to play in the Premier League aligns well with Newcastle's ambition to strengthen their squad.

Newcastle transfer news: Giorgi Mamardashvili to Newcastle

While no formal offer has been made yet, sources indicate that Newcastle are expected to table a bid in the coming weeks. The club is carefully planning its approach, considering the financial aspects and potential negotiations involved in securing Mamardashvili.

In addition to Mamardashvili, Newcastle have also shown interest in Arsenal's goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. However, the Magpies are cautious about pursuing Ramsdale due to the potential financial implications. Arsenal could use the funds from Ramsdale's sale to navigate the Premier League's profitability and sustainability rules (PSR). This financial leeway might enable Arsenal to activate the £100 million release clause of Newcastle's star midfielder, Bruno Guimaraes, which expires at the end of next month.

Newcastle's strategic planning reflects their broader ambitions in the transfer market. By exploring options like Mamardashvili, the club aims to bolster its squad without inadvertently strengthening a direct competitor. Mamardashvili's potential arrival would add depth to Newcastle's goalkeeping options and provide a promising long-term solution between the posts.

As the transfer window progresses, Newcastle fans can expect more developments regarding Newcastle transfer news on Mamardashvili and other potential signings. The club's proactive approach in the transfer market signals their determination to build a competitive team for the upcoming Premier League season.
