In one of the latest rumours to have surfaced, a renowned Twitter account of scouts, Scouts In Attendance, have stated that Newcastle United are keen to make a move for Red Bull Salzburg’s midfielder Valon Berisha, although Leicester City are also monitoring him.

The Sun had reported last month that the Magpies were keen to make him sign on the dotted line on a loan-to-buy deal, but it failed to materialize. Under the tutelage of Rafael Benitez, Newcastle United have started their season in a decent fashion, having collected 9 points from their first 6 games and are placed at the 10th spot in the league table.

By luring the likes of Jacob Murphy, Florian Lejeune, Javier Manquillo and Joselu, the Toon made some astute signings over the course of the summer transfer window. But then, there is still some room for development which needs to be addressed during the January transfer window.

Their interest in Berisha isn’t new, and frankly speaking, he is worth the fuss. He blossomed through the youth ranks of Norwegian outfit Egersund and was then promoted to their senior side. Over a considerable period of time, he has showcased his offensive prowess and knack to smash goals, which urged Viking to prise him out of the ranks of the Tigers and eventually in the summer of 2012, the midfielder made a move to RB Salzburg, winning the Austrian Bundesliga last season with them.

The Kosovo international has made a stellar name for himself so far in his career owing to his dazzling form and consistency. He has accumulated truckloads of experience under his belt, knits the side meticulously with his smart passes and movements and creates ample amount of opportunities for his teammates.

Predominantly an offensive-minded midfielder on the left, Berisha is capable enough of plying his trade to perfection from the central midfielder as well and the versatility which he offers makes him an appealing commodity for any quality side.

The Geordies would not only find their squad’s depth being called out for, but the calibre of their arsenal is seemingly likely to be tested during the later stages of the league season when the animosity starts to elevate. Having failed to sign the 24-year-old during the summer,

Benitez might be keen to wrap up things quickly and if a deal pans out this time around, it would be a huge boost for them to enhance their chances of staying away from the relegation zone.
