Newcastle United front-runners to sign Giorgi Mamardashvili

Newcastle United are at the front of the queue of clubs chasing Giorgi Mamardashvili, and Valencia are open to a sale for €40 million.

According to Fichajes, Newcastle United could accelerate their pursuit of a goalkeeper ahead of the summer as they are the front-runners to sign Giorgi Mamardashvili. The Georgian goalkeeper is ready to leave La Liga club Valencia, with Los Che willing to accept a big bid of around €40 million knowing well the competition for the player.

Newcastle United chasing Giorgi Mamardashvili

Newcastle United are very likely to recruit a top-rated goalkeeper in the summer to usher in an era of defensive stability and bring in a long-term option. Nick Pope has been sensational for them since arriving from Burnley. But he has missed more than half the current season due to a serious injury.

The Magpies want to prioritise signing key defenders to ease their back problems in the summer. However, they also want a solid goalkeeping option to ensure competition for the No.1 position is of the highest order ahead of next season.

This is a club plan, and they have earmarked many names on their list, including that of Valencia star Giorgi Mamardashvili. The Georgian has been sensational in the three seasons with Los Che, and now it appears he is ready to leave the club for a more significant challenge.

Newcastle United have been interested and might be willing to take the gamble by paying the €40 million that Valencia continue to demand for the time being. This price could further increase if they sense there is intense competition from other clubs for the Georgian keeper, which right now might be the case.

Is Aaron Ramsdale on Newcastle’s radar?

There have been some rumours linking Newcastle United with other goalkeepers, but none bigger than Aaron Ramsdale. The Magpies are keen on signing the Arsenal star, who appears destined to leave the North London side after losing his place to David Raya this season. Going forward, he may not get the chance to reclaim that No.1 spot, with Arsenal ready to sell him for a reasonable price.

Hence, in Newcastle United’s decision to sign a new goalkeeper, things could come down to the price point. Mamardashvili’s €40 million valuation might be similar to that of Ramsdale’s. Both keepers have the potential to make it big. But the Arsenal star is likely to be ahead of the curve due to his immense experience at the top with Mikel Arteta’s side.
