Newcastle are ‘set to present an offer for Atalanta’s Robin Gosens’ even though the German wing-back is out injured until mid-February… and the Magpies are ‘ready to TRIPLE the player’s wages’
- Newcastle are set to make an offer for Atlanta’s Robin Gosens, Sky Italia reported
- Gosens has been out with a muscle injury he sustained back in September
- The 27-year-old is not expected to return until mid-February
- Newcastle are willing to offer him £3.5million per year, triple his salary
Newcastle are expected to make an offer to Atalanta for wing-back Robin Gosens.
Gosens has participated in 50 goals for Atalanta since joining the club in 2017 and was hugely impressive for Germany at Euro 2020.
He has been out of action since late September after injuring a muscle in a Champions League fixture with Young Boys and is not expected to return until the middle of February.

However, the player’s lack of match fitness has not deterred Newcastle.
According to a report from Sky Italia, the Magpies are set to make an offer to the Serie A side for the 27-year-old, once they receive assurances he will be able to make a full recovery by mid-February.
And they are ready to make a succulent offer to convince the German to swap Serie A for a Premier League relegation battle, with the report adding Gosens could be paid up to £3million per year, triple the salary he currently earns.
Newcastle signed England right-back Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid for a reported £12m
The Magpies then captured Chris Woods from Burnley after paying £25m for the striker
Newcastle have wasted little time in showing their ambition in the transfer market after Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) completed their controversial takeover of the club in October.
They bought Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid for an undisclosed fee reported to be in the region of £12million although reports in Spain suggest they paid closer to £20million for the England international.
They then exercised Chris Wood’s buy-out clause to sign the English striker from Burnley.
