According to a report from SPORT, Newcastle United are keeping an eye on defender Andreas Christensen. The warbler wants to supplement and strengthen the defense system. Newcastle consider plans to sign Christensen in January.
This season, the Danish defender has 728 minutes on the field in La Liga, contributing one assist. Christensen plays an important role in Barcelona’s defense system.
Going back in time, Christensen left Chelsea in the summer of 2022 and landed in Barcelona. Under Xavi Hernandez, the 27-year-old defender gradually became an important piece of the Barcelona defense.
Newcastle plans to add a central defender in the context of Sven Botman being out due to injury. Coach Eddie Howe has few quality personnel options at hand. Fabian Schar and Jamal Lascelles are the central defender duo at the moment for the Magpies.
Christensen has emerged as a possible transfer target for Newcastle. The Danish defender promises to bring quality, adding extensive combat experience to the English team.
After 11 Premier League rounds this season, Newcastle United is ranked 6th in the rankings, seven points behind leader Man City.
