A report has emerged from Italy that claims Newcastle want to sign Koray Gunter from Genoa in January.
Gunter is valued at £9m by the Italian side, but Newcastle already have five centre-backs, who can all play in the Premier League, and they also have three right-backs – so any move for Gunter would probably depend on departures.
He is currently on a season-long loan at Hellas Verona, and the whole deal seems doubtful.
I do not see how Gunter would end up as a Newcastle player by the end of January it does not seem like a deal the Toon would be looking to do – with attacking players the primary focus for Steve Bruce.
