Newcastle United and Tottenham have ‘contacted’ Raoul Bellanova’s agents ahead of a possible move in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to Torino Granata, who report that the Premier League duo are part of a growing list of admirers of the 23-year-old.

They explain that Bellanova is one of three young players currently making waves at Torino this season, making them ‘coveted on the transfer market’.

Bellanova is enjoying big growth thanks to work manager Ivan Juric has been doing with him, helping to improve his defensive abilities but also turning him into something of assist maker as well.

Clubs in Italy and abroad have already ‘contacted’ the player’s agents, with Newcastle and Tottenham among the sides outside of his home country to do so, alongside the likes of Manchester United and Atlético Madrid.

The belief is that he will be an ‘important name’ in the summer transfer window, with both side’s keen on the right midfielder, who can also play at right back.

There’s no mention of an asking price at this moment in time, but both Newcastle and Tottenham have shown a desire to sign young talent in the last few windows.

That seems to have put Bellanova on their radar, and he is a name to keep an eye out for as we get closer to the summer.
