Newcastle United are contemplating making a double bid to sign Inter Milan duo Hakan Calhanoglu and Denzel Dumfries, according to reports.

It is the first summer transfer window for the Magpies since they were taken over by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.

They have been heavily linked with Lille centre-half Sven Botman as well as Stade Reims forward Hugo Ekitike.

While the Ligue 1 pair are Newcastle’s top targets this summer, they are unsurprisingly linked with a high number of players.

And Italian outlet Calciomercato have claimed that the Geordies are interested in Inter Milan’s Calhanoglu and Dumfries.

It is believed that Newcastle will have to fork out £51m for the duo. Dumfries has been linked with Manchester United, who are reportedly looking to offload fellow right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Should Inter let the Turkish midfielder and versatile Dutch defender leave, they may be able to hold onto Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni, Nicolo Barella and Lautaro Martinez.

Dumfries impressed for the Netherlands at Euro 2020 and earned himself a move to Inter from PSV after the tournament.

The 26-year-old had a solid debut season in Italy; operating on the right of a back-five he scored five goals and provided seven assists in 45 matches across all competitions for the Serie A runners-up.

Meanwhile, Newcastle and Tottenham reportedly do not have the ‘full liking’ of Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo.

This is according to Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Roma ‘are willing to sit down to the negotiating table’ if €50m is offered for Zaniolo. They are also not interested in a player-plus-cash transfer.

It is noted that ‘Newcastle and Tottenham don’t have the full liking’ of the forward. The report also states that Zaniolo ‘would prefer to stay in Italy’ with AC Milan and Juventus keen.
