Newcastle is reportedly intensifying their scouting efforts this month for Ousmane Diomande, aiming to outpace other Premier League competitors in securing the defender.

Eddie Howe, facing the need to revamp his squad after a string of lackluster performances, is eyeing potential January recruits.

Currently occupying the 10th spot in the table, Newcastle’s standing could be at risk pending the outcome of Wolves’ game in hand following their recent defeat to Manchester City.

Despite earlier rumors linking them to a new striker, such as Dominic Solanke, the Magpies are now turning their attention to fortifying their defensive line.The Mirror  reports a heightened scouting emphasis on Sporting Lisbon’s Diomande, a 20-year-old who has garnered interest from top European clubs. His notable performances in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, featuring in 21 appearances this season, have positioned him as a sought-after prospect.

The Mirror’s report indicate that Diomande’s valuation stands at £70 million, with Newcastle likely to commence negotiations below this figure. However, the intricacies of a potential deal may necessitate patience until the summer, given the current Financial Fair Play restrictions limiting the club’s transfer market activities.
