Sven Botman continues to stand firm forcing Newcastle United to look into potential alternative targets for the centre-back role, a report claims.
According to what journalist Claudio Raimondi has reported on SportMediaset (via MilanNews), the next few days will be decisive in the future of Botman, who continues to push for a move to Milan so much so that he is not considering any other options at present.
Newcastle have offered €38m to Lille for the Dutchman which is more than Milan’s bid of €30m, and they are becoming impatient as they are not managing to convince the player to move to the Premier League.
That is why their management are considering the possibility of changing targets for the defence and a name has already emerged. Merih Demiral could be the man the Magpies go for, as he is set to leave Juventus after returning from his loan at Atalanta.
