NEWCASTLE have made Barcelona star Marc-Andre ter Stegen their number one transfer target, secondo i rapporti.
The Magpies could have a war chest of up to £150million available to spend in the January transfer window.
And according to Spanish outlet El Nacional, the new Saudi owners are looking to lure Barcelona’s no 1 to St. James’ Parco.
Newcastle will reportedly look to bring in a number of players, but are said to be most keen to improve the goalkeeping department.
And ter Stegen is the upgrade they have identified in a potential £47m deal.
Barcelona are said to be open to such a deal, as that sort of income would be a big boost to their troubling financial situation.
But Newcastle may find it difficult to persuade the German shot-stopper to leave.
He is believed to be happy at the Nou Camp and has previously said that if he was to go, it would be to return to Germany.
