Newcastle United are reportedly the latest club to show a strong interest in a potential transfer deal for RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara.
The Mali international has been strongly linked as a top target for Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick in recent times, which isn’t too surprising due to his connections with the club.
