Newcastle United Are 'In Talks' With Edinson Cavani And Dries Mertens Over Huge Double Swoop

Newcastle United Are 'In Talks' With Edinson Cavani And Dries Mertens Over Huge Double Swoop

Newcastle United's potential new owners want to make a huge statement in the transfer market.

It is being reported that The Magpies are currently 'in talks' with both PSG forward Edinson Cavani and Napoli striker Dries Mertens, as a Saudi-based consortium group edge closer to completing a stunning £300 million takeover of the club.

ESPN claim that Newcastle have already been in touch with the agents of Cavani and Mertens, as well as Chelsea's Brazilian winger Willian, but they are aware that signing any of the trio would be 'challenging'.

Cavani, who has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side for months, would certainly be a huge coup for the Premier League outfit.

The 33-year-old Uruguayan striker has netted an impressive 200 goals in 300 games for the club, and has netted over 50 times for his country since 2008.

Meanwhile the talented Mertens, another established Champions League player, has represented Belgium on 90 occasions, scoring 18 times in total.
