Newcastle And Arsenal In Race For Atalanta striker Rasmus Højlund

Premier League sides Newcastle United and Arsenal are interested in the possibility of signing Atalanta striker Rasmus Højlund.

La Dea’s new star recently grabbed a hat-trick on his Denmark debut and caught global attention, having already impressed in Serie A so far in the ongoing campaign. While parts of the Danish media have linked him with a move to Manchester United, the Red Devils don’t find a mention in Italy – yet.

Marco Conterio reports that Newcastle and Arsenal are the two interested clubs in the Dane and both the clubs are looking to sign a striker in the summer.

Atalanta value him at nothing less than €40 million right now and a couple of Italian clubs are also keeping tabs on Højlund.

Those two clubs are Milan and Napoli. The Rossoneri could soon seek long-term replacements for Olivier Giroud and the Partenopei would likely look for replacements for Victor Osimhen.

In 23 Serie A appearances this season, Højlund has scored seven times while racking up two assists for La Dea.
