Newcastle United ready to join Inter Milan ‘in the race’ for USA World Cup star

Newcastle United have been linked with a defender who impressed at the World Cup finals.

Newcastle United are showing interest in Fulham defender Antonee Robinson after impressing at the World Cup for the United States.

The left-back appeared in every minute of his side’s four matches at the tournament as they cruised through a group consisting of England, Wales and Iran before seeing their hopes of progressing to the quarter-finals dashed they finished with a round-16 defeat against the Netherlands on Saturday.

Robinson’s performances at the World Cup caught the attention of Tottenham Hotspur defender Matt Doherty, who praised the left-back ahead of his side’s game against Iran, saying: “It’s not easy today, but I’ll go with Antonee Robinson from the USA, left back, athletic, quick. Looks like a good player.”

Robinson has also been heavily involved in Fulham’s impressive return to the Premier League, featuring in 13 of the Cottagers’ 15 games so far this season. However, the former Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers defender missed his side’s 4-1 defeat against Newcastle in October when Miguel Almiron, Sean Longstaff and Callum Wilson found the net to give the Magpies a 4-1 win at Craven Cottage.

Serie A giants Inter Milan are said to have shown significant interest in Robinson and were said to be ‘prepared to offer’ around £16million to tempt the Cottagers to part with the youngster 25-year-old, just over two years after a potential. the move to cross-town rivals AC Milan collapsed.

However, TEAMtalk have now claimed Newcastle are “ready to join the chase” for Robinson as they look to bolster their left-back options. Dan Burn and Matt Targett have filled the role over the past year, but the Magpies are said to be “in the market” for a new left-back during the January transfer window. United have also been linked with Croatia star Borna Sosa and Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo over the past two months.
