San Siro side target St James’ Park duo.
Serie A side AC Milan are reportedly interested in signing Newcastle United youngsters Tim Krul and Davide Santon according to the Daily Mirror.
The San Siro side has identified talented young Dutch keeper Krul as a potential long term custodian but given that the 24 year old is tied down to the Magpies until 2017 one would imagine any bid for the Newcastle United keeper would have to be fairly huge for Alan Pardew’s side to even consider it.

However moves to sign Italian full-back Santon could be more straightforward. The former Inter Milan youngster has been constantly linked with a move away from St James’ Park and could well be interested in a move back to Serie A and could look to force the issue.
AC Milan assistant Mauro Tassotti has confirmed that his side is interested in 22 year old Santon.
Alan Pardew is having something of an awful January as it is and won’t want to consider any more high profile exits. Demba Ba’s release clause was finally triggered by Chelsea and off he went, Fabricio Coloccini is reportedly homesick and has publicly stated his intention to move back to Argentina.
This comes off the back of a horrific run of form that has left the North-East side languishing near the relegation zone. However Pardew did finally snap up long term target Mathieu Debuchy from Lille, so it’s not all doom and gloom for the Toon.
