Newcastle United are reportedly ready to join the race to sign Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, who is attracting interest from other clubs in the Premier League.

Newcastle United have reportedly identified Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir as a potential signing.

Having made an impression for his club, Cakir has recently been rewarded with his first senior cap for Turkey, a development which has not gone unnoticed by teams in the Premier League.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a future approach for the 23-year-old, who appears destined to sign for a bigger side.

According to 61 Saat, Newcastle are also keen on Cakir, with the North-East outfit having sent scouts to watch the stopper in action.

Cakir has a contract at Trabzonspor until 2024, while it is alleged that club officials could value him in the region of £17m.

The Magpies are well stocked for goalkeepers, however, as Martin Dubravka, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot currently compete for the number-one spot, while Freddie Woodman is expected to be back in contention next season after impressing on loan for Swansea City.
