Newcastle United are in the picture for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, according to AS on Saturday.

The striker ‘begins to escape’ from Real Madrid due to the arrival of Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and ‘without forgetting Newcastle’.

After detailing arguments as to why Pep Guardiola’s side and PSG will look at the 21-year-old, the Magpies get a mention.

AS state ‘it is not out of question’ for the Tyneside club to ‘try to sign’ the BVB frontman following the club’s takeover by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.

The Premier League side, now led by the PIF, will have considerable funds to build a competitive squad in the coming windows.

They are already linked to several world class players, and as per the report, the Norway international’s name is ‘on the table’ at St James’ Park.

AS only suggest Newcastle will try to sign Haaland. However, they don’t mention if the player or his camp, led by his father, Alf-Inge Håland, and advisor, Mino Raiola, will look at the option to join the English club.
