As Newcastle seeks to bolster their squad for the upcoming season, they must be prudent in their acquisitions, seeking bargains wherever available. HITC suggests that they may have identified one such opportunity in Mario Hermoso, who currently plies his trade for Atletico Madrid.

The Spanish international, capped five times, is nearing the end of his contract and has garnered interest from several Premier League clubs vying to secure his services. Aston Villa, West Ham, and Newcastle are reportedly among those keen on the 28-year-old defender.

Three big Serie A clubs are also interested in Hermoso

Additionally, there is considerable interest from Italy, with three prominent Serie A clubs eyeing Mario Hermoso’s talents. However, according to HITC, Premier League sides have initiated contact with Hermoso’s representatives and are now acquainted with his contractual requirements.

Hermoso, who has featured 28 times for Atletico Madrid this season, including eight appearances in the Champions League, has contributed two goals and an assist. As a free agent, he is expected to command substantial wages in lieu of a transfer fee, adding intrigue as his agent navigates negotiations with multiple clubs.

Newcastle are looking to box-clever in the transfer market

As Newcastle increasingly turns to the free agent market for backup players, Eddie Howe will need to allocate more resources towards securing top-quality players to strengthen certain positions that have been lacking this season, particularly in the striker department. While Alexander Isak is a world-class talent, the supporting players around him have not consistently delivered, leading to occasional struggles. Moreover, Isak’s injury record since joining Newcastle has been less than ideal. With Callum Wilson likely to be sold this summer while he still holds value, the club faces the task of acquiring two strikers, which can be a costly endeavor.

The defense also presents a significant concern, particularly at left-back, which has been problematic throughout the season. With a multitude of areas needing reinforcement, Newcastle’s interest in free agents is a welcome development.
