Newcastle United Set to Win £8m Race to Sign Talented Chilean

St James’ Park side chase Juventus right-back.

Check in to Newcastle United vs Manchester City

Newcastle United are closing in on yet another summer signing after their £8m bid for the Juventus right-back was accepted according to the Daily Star.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew has already brought in a slew of impressive additions and by all accounts is set to bring in 26 year old wide-man Isla, seemingly to replace Mathieu Debuchy, who has left St James’ Park for Arsenal.

Isla has struggled to retain a foothold in the Juventus starting eleven and may well be ready for a fresh challenge and having seen fellow countryman Alexis Sanchez move to the Premier League the Chilean may well be even more tempted to follow suit.

The former Udinese man made just 14 appearances last season but started all of Chile’s World Cup fixtures this summer and looked very impressive and is an experienced performer who could be an ideal signing for Pardew to pursue.

Newcastle United have already signed Ayoze Pérez, Jack ColbackSiem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Emmanuel Rivière and Daryl Janmaat.
