Newcastle United put together an incredible five-man Serie A transfer shortlist, which includes Manchester United target Federico Chiesa.
According to rumors, NEWCASTLE has compiled a five-man Serie A transfer wishlist.
Federico Chiesa, a Manchester United target, is thought to be one of the prospects the Toon are keeping an eye on.
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly interested in signing Juventus star Chiesa.
Because they were teammates at Juve, the two are well acquainted, and Ronaldo is claimed to have been impressed by what he witnessed from the 23-year-old.
According to TuttoSport, his strong performances for club and country have also drawn Newcastle.
Following their £300 million Saudi-backed acquisition, the Toon are trying to sign ‘world class’ talent.
They are said to be interested in five of Serie A’s brightest stars.
Chiesa shined during Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph, scoring in the semi-final win over Spain at Wembley.

Last month, he also scored the game’s only goal in Juve’s Champions League victory over reigning champions Chelsea.
Chiesa may not be alone in making the journey from Italy to the North East, according to TuttoSport.
Matthijs de Ligt, a 22-year-old Juve teammate, is another name the Magpies are apparently interested in.
In July 2019, the Dutch centre-back transferred to Turin for £67.5 million from Ajax.
And if Newcastle wants to sign him, they’ll have to spend a lot of money because he still has three years left on his £206,000-a-week contract.
The Mags are rumored to be interested in the remaining three players, all of whom are from the two Milan giants.
Franck Kessie, a 24-year-old AC midfielder, is a promising young player.
Since joining AC from Atalanta in 2019, the Ivorian has scored 30 goals and supplied 15 assists in 191 games.
The final two names are taken from Inter, their bitter rivals.

They are also rumoured to be interested in 28-year-old Croatian international Marcelo Brozovic.
Since joining Inter from Dinamo Zagreb in 2016, the 68-cap holding midfielder has amassed 68 caps.
