Everton, Newcastle United make approach for Federico Gatti

Everton and Newcastle United have reportedly conducted surveys over a possible move for 26-year-old Italian international Federico Gatti.

According to a report by Italian outlet Tutto Juve, Everton and Newcastle United are interested in signing Federico Gatti in the summer transfer window. The two Premier League clubs have submitted enquiries to sign the Italian international from Serie A club Juventus in the coming weeks.

Federico Gatti and his progress at Juventus

Federico Gatti has gone from strength to strength since joining Juventus from Frosinone two years ago. The 26-year-old moved around a lot before arriving at the Allianz Stadium in 2022 but has found a stable footing at the Serie A club during his spell with the Bianconeri thus far.

The Italian defender has broken into his national team due to his progress in the last two years, with Luciano Spalletti picking him in the squad for UEFA Euro 2024. That comes after a solid 2023/24 campaign for Gatti, where he turned out 36 times for Juventus while amassing 3,000 minutes of game time and chipping in with four goals.

Meanwhile, Gatti’s progress at Juventus has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several well-known outfits across Europe. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Everton and Newcastle United among his prospective suitors in the summer transfer window. And the two clubs have submitted enquiries to sign him in the coming weeks.

Premier League beckons?

Everton’s interest in Federico Gatti is understandable. The Toffees are in a spot of bother over the long-term future of Jarrad Branthwaite, with Manchester United pushing to sign the 21-year-old Englishman. The Juventus defender has thus emerged as a viable target for Everton.

As for Newcastle United, the Magpies are keen on signing another centre-back despite landing Lloyd Kelly in a Bosman move. Eddie Howe will have limited central defensive options at his disposal when the 2024/25 season kicks off due to Sven Botman and Jamaal Lascelles’s injuries. So, Gatti is an option worth considering for Newcastle United.

While Everton and Newcastle United have enquired about the 26-year-old Italian international, they are yet to open talks or submit an offer. So, it will be interesting to see how this story progresses in the coming weeks.
