Newcastle United Eyes Everton’s Defender for January Transfer Window
In a bid to strengthen their squad, Newcastle United is set to target Everton’s promising young talent, Jarrad Branthwaite, in the upcoming January transfer window. Reports from Football Transfers suggest that the Magpies’ new manager, Eddie Howe, has made Branthwaite his top priority for defensive reinforcements as they gear up for the winter transfer market.
While Newcastle’s need for a new midfielder is evident, especially given the 10-month suspension of Sandro Tonali due to illegal betting activity, it’s clear that a solid addition to their defensive ranks is also on the agenda.
The reason behind this pursuit is Newcastle’s belief that Jarrad Branthwaite could be the long-term successor to 31-year-old Fabian Schar, who has been a cornerstone of their defense. Branthwaite’s potential has caught the eye of many top clubs, including Manchester United and Liverpool, which is why Eddie Howe will need to act swiftly to secure the talented defender’s services.
Jarrad Branthwaite, who has been on Everton’s books since 2019, spent the previous season on loan with Dutch side PSV, gaining valuable experience. However, it’s this season that has seen the 21-year-old breakthrough and display his true potential on the pitch.
