Newcastle United make effort to hijack Tottenham's top target

Newcastle are looking at Antonio Nusa as a replacement for Miguel Almiron

In a surprising turn of events, Newcastle United is reportedly planning to 'hijack' the transfer of Antonio Nusa, who has been heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur. This comes amid news that Miguel Almiron could be sold.

Tottenham has shown significant interest in Nusa over the past few weeks. A report from Belgium suggested that the Club Brugge winger was on his way to join Spurs in January. The report further indicated that barring any unforeseen circumstances, Tottenham would complete a €30m deal and loan the winger back to Club Brugge for the rest of the season.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently downplayed these claims. He revealed that there had only been "two meetings" between Tottenham and Club Brugge to discuss this deal, with everything still at a "verbal" stage.

Miguel Almiron is reportedly on his way to Saudi Pro League

Reports claim that Newcastle United is considering an audacious move to hijack Tottenham’s deal for Nusa. The Magpies are reportedly eyeing up the 18-year-old as a potential replacement for Miguel Almiron.

Newcastle and Saudi Pro League club Al-Shabab have yet to agree on a fee for Paraguayan player Almiron, but he has agreed terms to move to the Middle East. In light of this development, Club Brugge winger Nusa has been identified as a potential target by Newcastle.

The club has placed particular emphasis on signing young talent since their Saudi-backed takeover and sees Nusa fitting perfectly into this strategy.

Tottenham remain favourites to sign Nusa

Despite these developments, it is understood that Tottenham remains in pole position for securing Nusa’s services. The Belgian side seems keen on striking a deal allowing their winger to return after spending time with Spurs during this current campaign.

This unfolding situation presents an intriguing transfer battle between Newcastle and Tottenham. As sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts, this is a situation to keep an eye on as it could have significant implications for both teams' performance in the upcoming season.
