Newcastle United are looking keen on securing a move for former Chelsea and Barcelona man Christensen

Newcastle United are looking for a transfer of Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen. Newcastle and Eddie Howe are looking to bolster their defensive options with former Chelsea man Christensen. The Magpies have constantly been linked with making moves as Howe looks to take his side to a next level. Moreover, the injuries of their player Svan Botman has forced them to search for an option at the back. Consequently, the Toons want a player with some Premier League experience down his belt.

According to a new update from Sport, Newcastle are keen on signing former Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen. It is also stated that the magpies are “still interested” in the Denmark international, having acquired his signature back in the past. They are very attentive on the situation at Barcelona as Christensen is one of the “most reliable” man at his position in the club. However, it will be a brilliant signing if Newcastle secure a move for him.

The Dane has also proved his worth by securing a Champions League title with Chelsea in 2021. Besides this, he also won the La Liga title with Barca last year. Moreover, Xavi described him as “extraordinary”, which is a big praise from such a legend. Christensen will be a great addition at St James Park not only as a cover for Botman but also the best centre-back partner moving forward. However, there are also reports that the player is happy with his situation at Camp Nou. Therefore, securing a move is very difficult under current circumstances.
