Newcastle United offer Brighton £20m bid for Robert Sanchez as Eddie Howe searches for new goalkeeper

Newcastle United are ready to spend £20million on Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.

In what should be a huge party for the players this summer, manager Eddie Howe looks like he has his sights set on his first target.


Sanchez has had a great season for the Seagulls and it’s no surprise to see Newcastle loving his services

The 24-year-old Spaniard has been a solid figure for Graham Potter this season, starting all but one game in the Premier League.

He kept eight clean sheets for the South Coast side, and his consistency also saw him rewarded with a national team call-up.

Sanchez’s international manager Luis Enrique even gave him his debut, sending him off against Georgia in a 4-0 World Cup qualifier.

Nine years younger than current No.1 Martin Dubravka, Sanchez represents the Magpies’ long-term approach as they continue to build their squad.

The Sun are reporting a £20m bid is in the works to test Brighton’s resolve and believe he is Howe’s first choice.

It would also be Newcastle’s second time attacking Brighton for a player, having signed Dan Burn for £13million in January.

Raya’s future looks very good and Newcastle are hoping to secure his services

Away from the field, the two clubs remain in negotiations over the release of Dan Ashworth.

The 51-year-old resigned as technical director in February and was placed on gardening leave by Brighton.

And unless the two sides reach an agreement, Ashworth will not be able to take up his post at St James Park until November, when his nine-month notice period ends.
