Newcastle United keen on Marc Guehi

Newcastle United could sanction a big-money move for Marc Guehi in the summer as they plan on key defensive reinforcements.

According to Football Insider, Newcastle United could position themselves as a defensive suitor for Marc Guehi, with the club ready to sanction a big-money move for the 23-year-old defender. The Magpies are keen to add the Crystal Palace star as part of their defensive addition as they continue to suffer from a shortage of centre-backs.

Newcastle United keen on Marc Guehi

Marc Guehi has made a name for himself at Crystal Palace since his big move from Chelsea. He has gone on to make 95 Premier League appearances for the Eagles, although there are fewer chances of him making more, as a summer move seems likely.

Palace have so far evaded interest, but with the defender set to enter the final two years of his deal, they could sell, but not for cheap. The Eagles are expected to slap a massive asking price on the 23-year-old centre-back, who continues to attract enormous interest from elsewhere.

Newcastle United have suffered this season due to persistent defensive injuries. Sven Botman missed a chunk of the season and was again injured, although now he could miss close to a year with an ACL injury. Soon enough, Jamal Lascelles also suffered a similar problem, which left them with the bare minimum personnel at the back.

Newcastle United are keen on Guehi but are also aware of his potentially big asking price. Still, the club is ready to sanction a big-money move for the 23-year-old Crystal Palace mainstay and bring him to St James Park next summer. He will certainly be a statement signing that would strengthen their backline.

Newcastle faces Guehi competition

There are many more clubs keen on Guehi, but Newcastle United could face the significant threat of Liverpool for the 23-year-old defender. The Merseysiders have shown an interest in recruiting the Palace star and have been in contact with his representatives.

Should Liverpool enter the chase with seriousness and intent, the chances of Newcastle losing out are massive. Guehi might see and compare those two clubs, and in most cases, a player might choose the Merseysiders over the Magpies, which could be the case with the 23-year-old.
