Newcastle United want Fulham defneder Antonee Robinson

Newcastle United are reportedly ready to lock horns with Manchester City over the signature of Fulham defneder Antonee Robinson, according to Football Insider.

The 25-year-old defender, who has attracted the interest of City, is now being pursued by the Magpies.

Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe is reportedly keen to strengthen his team’s defensive capabilities with an aggressive full-back, and Robinson has been identified as a primary target for the upcoming season.

Howe aims to reinforce his team during the upcoming transfer window as part of their project to pursue Premier League success in the coming years. With the financial resources at their disposal, the manager is convinced that the addition of Robinson to the squad would bring them closer to achieving their goals.

The United States international has a contract that expires in the summer of 2024. Although there have been no indications of a contract extension, it appears that he may leave the club at the end of the season.

Currently, sitting in fourth place in the Premier League standings, Newcastle United are in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League next season. If they do achieve this feat, persuading Robinson to join the team may not be as difficult.

The full-back has become a vital player for the club, having made 22 appearances in the current season.
