Newcastle United are eyeing a summer move for Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing, according to reports.
The Magpies, who faced financial constraints in the previous transfer window, are gearing up for significant changes in the upcoming one.
Billing, 27, has been a consistent performer for the Cherries since joining in 2019, featuring in various midfield roles and contributing to 51 goals in 181 appearances.
While his contract with Bournemouth extends to 2027, Newcastle United see him as a valuable addition to their squad.
Eddie Howe’s interest in Billing was evident during the winter window, but a move didn’t materialise. However, Newcastle aim to revisit their pursuit in the summer, viewing Billing as an affordable option to strengthen their midfield.
With Joelinton possibly departing, Billing could fill the void, offering versatility and Premier League experience. The potential £15 million acquisition would enhance Newcastle’s quality and depth in midfield, providing a viable solution for their future plans.
