Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo.

After their promotion back into the Premier League Newcastle United will be looking to wrap up summer signings quickly in the upcoming transfer window. Former Liverpool manager, Rafa Benitez, will be hoping to bolster his side ready to compete in the Premier League next season.

According to Chronicle Live the Newcastle boss is looking to strengthen his options out wide and wants to sign two left-wingers. Newcastle are interested in a number of players including Andros Townsend, Leicester’s Tom Lawrence and Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo.

With the departures of Yoan Gouffran and Vernon Anita expected to be announced in the next few days, filling the spaces on the wing they will leave will be a priority this summer.

At only 19 Ojo would bring a youthful energy to the Newcastle side and the possibility of developing and improving.

The Liverpool academy player was a target for Newcastle last summer, but a deal wasn’t made. However, Benitez has kept monitoring the England U-21 player throughout this season and could very well make a move for the youngster this summer.
