Atalanta want €50 million to sell Ederson amid Newcastle United links

Atalanta will demand €50 million to sell 24-year-old Brazilian midfield powerhouse Ederson, a target for Newcastle United.

According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Ederson is the subject of interest from Newcastle United. The Magpies are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Atalanta will demand around €50 million to part ways with the Brazilian midfield powerhouse.

Ederson and his exceptional Atalanta journey

Ederson has been a pivotal figure since joining Atalanta from Salernitana in July 2022. The 24-year-old took little time to adapt to life in Italy and has been one of the best midfielders in Serie A in the last 12 months. That is one of the reasons he is in line to make his debut for Brazil at the 2024 Copa America.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian midfield powerhouse was surprisingly productive in the 2023/24 season, chipping in with seven goals and one assist in 52 appearances across all competitions. Ederson’s performances played a big role in Atalanta clinching a top-four finish and winning the UEFA Europa League.

So, it is hardly surprising that the former Corinthians midfielder has captured the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards for the Atalanta star, with Newcastle United among his prospective suitors. Meanwhile, La Dea will demand around €50 million to part ways with him in the summer transfer window.

Premier League beckons?

Newcastle United’s interest in Ederson is hardly surprising. While Sandro Tonali will return from a long layoff due to a betting ban, the Magpies are in a spot of bother over the long-term futures of Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton. Newcastle United will likely retain the services of the Brazilian duo.

However, Bruno Guimaraes will likely embark on a new adventure in a year or two. Meanwhile, Newcastle United will look to elevate the level of the squad to return to the UEFA Champions League with a top-four finish in the upcoming season. Ederson’s name thus rightly features on Newcastle United’s wishlist.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian midfield powerhouse is not an expensive target, as the Tyneside outfit should have the funds to cough up €50 million and sign him in the summer transfer window. So, it will be interesting to see if Newcastle United can secure Ederson’s services in the coming weeks.
