Newcastle United are interested in Yann Sommer as they turn their attention to the Borussia Monchengladbach stopper who walked away from Dean Henderson.
After an impressive loan spell from Aston Villa, Newcastle have secured Matt Targett on a permanent basis.
The Magpies will be looking for additional players to strengthen Eddie Howes'' squad, and there is a fresh name in the goalkeeping mix.
Dean Henderson has been linked with Newcastle for a while now and reportedly had discussions with his agent.
However, it appears the Magpies are looking elsewhere now with a Bundesliga stopper on the radar.
Newcastle United want Yann Sommer
Newcastle are now referring to Sommer after returning from Henderson, according to TalkSPORT.
Newcastle are concentrating on signing a goalkeeper who is very adept with the ball at his feet.
Sommer is convinced that he is the perfect goalkeeper to play in Eddie Howes style.
Sommer, 33, is reportedly reluctant to sign a new contract with Borussia Monchengladbach, and he may be sold.
Sommers'' current deal closes in 2023, and Gladbach may choose to take it out before he will leave for nothing.
Fabian Schar''s international teammate is the Swiss stopper and his joining forces at Newcastle might be hugely beneficial, owing to their combined capabilities.
Sommer enjoyed a great season with Gladbach, and he has received some very good reviews in the past.
Kasper Schmeichel, a leading premier league goalkeeper, has been described as one of Europe''s most underrated.
Schmeichel believes that a limited number of goalkeepers can match Sommer for his actions.
If they make a summer move, Schmeichel and Newcastle might soon benefit from his ball-playing abilities.
