Newcastle United in talks to sign PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola

Premier League side Newcastle United have re-entered into discussions with PSG over signing goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, according to France Football.

The outlet claims that Les Parisiens are prepared to the French international to make way for a new number one this summer, seeking around €20m.

Rafa Benitez has held several one-on-one discussions with PSG’s current #1, having already held talks for the player in January, with initial contact dating back to Spring 2017.

During these conversations, Benitez is said to have asked Areola if he would join him not only at Newcastle, but at any other future club that he becomes the manager of, with the Spaniard not certain to stay with the Magpies this summer, owing to the lack of money available for transfers.

Crystal Palace and Napoli are interested in Areola too, with the Frenchman having recently bought a property in London, a city that his wife adores.
