Newcastle United ‘make approach for Aston Villa star Jacob Ramsey’ amid Spurs and Bayern Munich interest with Unai Emery’s side needing to ‘raise funds to stay compliant with FFP rules’

  • Newcastle are keen to sign Jacob Ramsey from Aston Villa in January
  • The Villains apparently have to raise funds before the end of June
  • A sad despondent driver saying goodbye. This is seismic moment for Liverpool – It kicks everything off

Newcastle United have reportedly made an approach for Aston Villa star Jacob Ramsey.

The midfielder has impressed at Villa Park in recent seasons and has made 10 Premier League appearances so far this campaign as his side sit fourth in the league.

The 22-year-old is said to be attracting the attention of clubs in both England and Europe, with Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich also ‘making their admiration for Ramsey clear’.

If Villa decide to let their academy graduate leave before June, a bidding war could therefore result in increasing his price.

This is according to the The Athleticswith the report stating that Aston Villa must raise funds by the end of June to meet profit and sustainability rules.

However, the report still says that as Ramsey has established himself as a key player, a say ‘ideal’ would not be a consideration.

Despite this, interested parties believe offers in excess of £50m will be considered for the midfielder.

The Athletic finalize by revealing that there are other ways Aston Villa can raise money to meet profit and sustainability rules if they don’t want to sell their star.

One way to this could be through the sale of Chelsea-linked Jhon Duran, with the report still revealing the Blues’ further interest.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are said to be admirers of the 20-year-old and have discussed a potential deal.

Duran is currently injured and this could complicate any potential deal, but does not rule out a transfer as Chelsea see him as a talent for the future.
