In a recent report, Sky Sports mentioned that Newcastle United are in talks to sign Southampton full-back Tino Livramento this summer. It has been stated that the Magpies are hoping to lure the English talent to Tyneside during this summer transfer period.
Livramento’s Difficult Season In The Premier League
Livramento had to endure a tough campaign at Southampton as he struggled to help them avoid being relegated from the Premier League. Still, the English full-back did well to put in a string of impressive displays for the Saints on the right flank.
The 20-year-old made just two appearances for his current club last season after missing a lot of games due to injury. He has played a total of 34 senior matches for the Saints so far, netting one goal and grabbing a couple of assists in various competitions (stats via whoscored).
His current deal at Southampton will run out in 2026. Hence, Newcastle will have to launch a big offer if they want to secure Livramento’s services this summer.
Should Newcastle United Boss Eddie Howe Snap Livramento Up This Summer?
Livramento can be a solid presence on the defensive third of the pitch when he is playing regularly on the field. He can make a few driving runs with the ball on the right wing and has got the eye to create some inviting chances for his teammates on the attacking end of the pitch.
The English talent is primarily a right-back but can also operate as a right-sided wide player if needed. However, there are some concerns over his recent injury record at Southampton.
Still, there is no denying that Livramento would enhance the quality of Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe’s match-day squad. He has what it takes to offer some good competition for Kieran Trippier at St. James’ Park in the coming seasons.
At 20, Livramento has got a bright future ahead of him which makes him an ideal target for the Magpies this summer. He might even help the Tyneside club compete across all fronts over the next few years. With all things considered, Howe would be wise to try everything in his power to snap the English starlet up in this ongoing transfer window.
