Reports Of Newcastle Interest In Signing Italian Pair
It has been reported that Newcastle United are currently keeping tabs on two exciting young prospects from the island of Sardinia: midfielder Gianmarco Paulis, 18, and striker Simone Solinas, 17.
Both youngsters play for the youth team of Serie A side Cagliari and their performances have been met with positive feedback so far this season. Paulinas made 23 appearances last season and has turned out 5 times so far this campaign, while this is Solinas’ first season in the side and has so far played on 4 occasions.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the pair are thought to have impressed the United scouting system which has been responsible for bringing the youthful talents of the likes of Curtis Good, Kevin Mbabu and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to Newcastle.
It is also being reported that Newcastle are readying a bid to bring the Sardinians to Tyneside but face competition from Championship side Ipswich for their signatures.
