Newcastle will sabotage Everton’s move as Dan Ashworth ‘enquires’ about the top player for a German club.

The possibility of Everton securing the signing of Turkish talent Can Uzun appears to have diminished significantly, as Newcastle United has reportedly initiated discussions for his acquisition.

Uzun, an 18-year-old forward renowned for his versatility in positions like central attacking midfielder, striker, or right winger, has already made a significant impact at the senior level despite his young age.

Having progressed through Nuremberg’s academy, Uzun made his senior debut in May and has since become a pivotal figure for the German club.

With 13 goals and three assists in 20 appearances this season, including a brace in a recent Bundesliga 2 fixture against VfL Osnabruck, Uzun has been a standout performer, earning an average rating of 7.11 according to WhoScored.

His impressive displays have sparked speculation about a potential move to bigger clubs, with Newcastle reportedly joining the race for his signature, as revealed by Florian Plettenberg of Sky Germany.

Newcastle’s sporting director, Dan Ashworth, has made inquiries regarding a possible transfer, with Inter Milan also expressing interest.

Although Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Fulham are also monitoring the situation, Newcastle’s pursuit of Uzun could gain momentum, especially with the financial resources expected to be available to them in the upcoming summer transfer window.

While Uzun’s current market value is estimated at €8 million (£6.8m) by transfermarkt, Nuremberg is likely to demand a fee exceeding €10 million (£8.5m) for the talented youngster, considering his potential and the interest from top clubs.

Securing Uzun’s signature would align with Newcastle’s strategy of recruiting promising young talents, complementing previous acquisitions like Tino Livramento, Lewis Hall, Alfie Harrison, and Yankuba Minteh.
