Newcastle United is looking to make a splash in this summer's transfer window by acquiring AC Milan and Italy midfielder Sandro Tonali. It's an exciting start for Eddie Howe's squad in the upcoming transfer market.

So far, Newcastle United has been linked with several players, including James Maddison, Nicolo Barella, Kim Min-jae, and Kieran Tierney.

The Magpies, meanwhile, aim to sign two midfielders this summer. According to The Athletic, they have identified defensive options and increased flexibility as their targets ahead of the next season's Champions League football.

Inter Milan midfielder Barella, valued at £50 million by the club, is undoubtedly a prominent name on their list. However, another Italian international player has emerged as a potential candidate.

In fact, Newcastle has reportedly submitted a bid of £42 million or €50 million for Italian U21 captain Sandro Tonali.

The signing of Tonali, a player who excels in the regista role, would undoubtedly allow Bruno Guimaraes to flourish in a more advanced position if he joins the ranks at St. James' Park.

Tonali initially joined AC Milan on loan from Brescia for one season in 2020 before the deal was made permanent a year later. The 23-year-old made 48 appearances for the Serie A club last season.

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believes that securing Tonali could be "difficult" for Newcastle. "Yesterday, we had the rumor about Sandro Tonali to Newcastle," he said on his YouTube channel.

"What we can say is that it's true. Newcastle like Sandro Tonali, Newcastle have Sandro Tonali on their list, but as we said for Nicolo Barella last week, it's a very similar case," he added.

Tonali: A Die-Hard Fan and Symbol of AC Milan

"Newcastle would be happy to sign Sandro Tonali because they'd be happy to sign Nicolo Barella, but the main point is the value of the offer first because Milan want important money or nothing.

"It's important to say because Tonali is a die-hard Milan fan, he's a symbol of Milan, and to convince Sandro Tonali will be very difficult, just like Nicolo Barella.

"So, that's the situation, let's see how the talks will develop. Interest, yes, willingness to make an offer as well, but the player's side is crucial for Barella and Tonali."

Time will tell if they can overcome the hurdles and bring Tonali to St. James' Park.
