Newcastle have enquired about bringing £110m duo to St James’ Park

Newcastle United have enquired about signing Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Brentford’s Ivan Toney during the current transfer window.

Newcastle have been in the market all summer for a striker and recently missed out on Reims’ Hugo Ekitike, who has joined Paris Saint-Germain after the Magpies pulled out of a deal to sign the 20-year-old.

Therefore, Eddie Howe has turned to his alternatives, with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Brentford’s Ivan Toney on the list. The Toffees striker has been linked with a move to Tyneside all summer and earlier this month, the MailOnline claimed that the England international was looking for a move away from Everton this summer; but having sold Richarlison already, the Merseyside club are unlikely to part with the 25-year-old as well.

A recent report also stated that Newcastle are weighing up a move for their former player Ivan Toney. The Brentford star impressed during his last two seasons with the Bess and would be a great partner for Callum Wilson at St James’ Park.

Could Ivan Toney return to Newcastle United?

Speaking about the potential deals, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT that Newcastle have asked about signing Calvert-Lewin and Toney and have been informed that the two English forwards will cost £60m and £50m respectively.

The CBS reporter said: “Newcastle have enquired on Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but Everton are reluctant to sell and the £60m price tag is pretty high.

“Ivan Toney won’t happen unless Brentford significantly drop their valuation. Newcastle already enquired and were put off by the £50m asking price.”

Newcastle needs another forward but both players are clearly very expensive. Calvert-Lewin would be Howe’s best bet if the Magpies were to make a move for one, but it is a big risk for the money involved.
