Newcastle have already strengthened their midfield options this summer with the arrival of Sandro Tonali. However, Eddie Howe remains keen on a number of key targets in the same area.
The latest reports from Fichajes have claimed that Howe is a huge fan of Marcos Llorente, and the coach is keen to push through a move for the Atletico Madrid star.
Newcastle face competition from Saudi Arabia for Marcos Llorente
However, Newcastle are not the only club interested in the 28-year-old. Reports over the weekend have claimed that the Spanish star has been offered a lucrative offer to move to Saudi Arabia.
Llorente has been a key player for Atletico throughout his career at the La Liga club, as he has made over 150 appearances for the Spanish giants.
However, Atletico are keen to offload the 28-year-old this summer, as they are looking to reinvest the funds in the final third of the field.
