Newcastle are preparing a £20million bid for Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez ahead of the summer transfer window.

Eddie Howe has been impressed by Sanchez’s performances and is now planning a move for the 24-year-old, as reported by The Sun.

Martin Dubravka has been Newcastle’s regular goalkeeper this season and he could stay at the club, but Sanchez has been identified as a potential new first-choice option in that position.

Newcastle have also been impressed by Sanchez’s personality and feel that he would be a good fit for their project.

A product of Brighton’s academy, Sanchez has made 56 Premier League appearances, having first featured in the division last season. He previously had loan spells at Forest Green Rovers and Rochdale.

Newcastle are also looking at other options as they look to provide extra competition in the goalkeeping department.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is the second-choice goalkeeper at Chelsea, is under consideration, as is Dean Henderson, who remains behind David de Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Arsenal’s Bernd Leno and West Brom’s Sam Johnstone are also on Newcastle’s shortlist. 

Dubravka has kept 33 clean sheets in 118 league games for Newcastle since he joined the club, initially on loan, in 2018.

Karl Darlow and Mark Gillespie are also at the club, but Howe is eager to make changes to Newcastle’s goalkeeping department.
