According to The Mirror, Newcastle United are interested in Fulham''s defender Tosin Adarabioyo.
Newcastle, for one reason, already have one former Fulham centre-back in their backline, in the form of Dan Burn, and now they may connect him with Tosin.
Burn is, of course, one of the most physically significant defenders in the Premier League, and while Tosin is a 6-foot tall, it''s fair to say that he and Burn differ in one area.
While Burn is a boulder at the back, Tosin is more of a Rolls Royce capable of combining incredible physical force with lightning speed.
Pep Guardiola praised Fulham''s defense in the past.
Whats been said?
During Guardiola''s time at Manchester City, Guardiola talked about the centre-back.
We must tell Tosin that he has a good deal of equipment to get better, thus the player isn''t done. But he''s got all of the training, according to Guardiola.
He is fast, he is faster than people can believe it. He has the ability to look behind the wheel for the next step, the next pass, but he has a lot of things to gain, and I hope I can assist him in developing his skills.
You may be forgiven for believing that Tosin is the whole package at the centre-half, according to Guardiola''s description.
The Fulham man is really capable of everything. He''s lightning quick, he''s as strong as they come, and his line-breaking passing is at an all-time high.
Tosin is aiming for a place in the England squad with the proper coaching, and he will certainly get a chance for the Three Lions.
Fulham''s return to the club may be easier than expected, but Newcastle will be looking for a real gem.
