According to a report from The Sun, Newcastle, Swansea City and Derby County are all eyeing a move for Manchester City youngster Javairo Dilrosun as he enters the final months of his contract at the Etihad Stadium.
The Sun reports that City are yet to agree a new deal with the 19-year-old and he is keen to consider a move away as he looks for regular first-team football - and he will have a host of clubs to pick from if he does decide to seek a new challenge.
However, they will have to see off competition from Benfica for his signature. The Portuguese giants could only need to pay £200,000 for the starlet, who joined the Cityzens from Ajax in 2014.
Potential coup for Benitez?
Dilrosun is one of the most impressive youngsters coming through at Manchester City right now, so it would undoubtedly be a huge coup for Rafa Benitez to bring the winger to St James' Park this summer.
If Dilrosun realises his potential with the Magpies, he could be a fantastic player to have in the ranks as they look to really establish themselves back at the highest level. But with several sides also pursuing his signature, making it clear that first-team opportunities are there for the taking could boost Newcastle's hopes of winning the race.
