Newcastle hoping to beat Celtic and Liverpool to promising young goalkeeper

  Newcastle hoping to beat Celtic and Liverpool to promising young goalkeeper Newcastle are hoping to beat Liverpool and Celtic to the signing of promising young goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu. Chronicle Live claims that the Magpies have kept close tabs on the Shamrock Rovers star, who has attracted a lot of interest recently. Liverpool have scouted the player heavily in the past, while Celtic also offered him a trial. Fellow Premier League rivals Brighton are also believed to have invited the player in for a trial. Bazunu’s development has not gone unnoticed as he became the youngest player to feature domestically for Shamrock Rovers. At the age of just 16, Bazunu is already impressing a first-team environment and is widely seen as one for the future. The Magpies are looking to bolster their U-23 side ahead of the new season and have deals lined up for several promising youngsters. While Bazunu is not a player that Rafa Benitez will be looking to use in the near future, it would be a huge coup if the Magpies could fend off other interest to secure a deal.

The downside to constantly churning out young talent, however, is that rival clubs are always circling and keen to get their claws on Forest’s next big thing. Fortunately, however, Forest are confident Mighten will sign a deal and reject the chance to follow Bondswell to Manchester United.

The Portuguese youngster was limited to just a handful of appearances last season.

Given the arrivals of Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko at the London Stadium, with Felipe Anderson expected to follow, Quina may be worried about another season away from the first-team picture.
