Here is your 4am Newcastle United transfer digest.
Magpies 'ask' about Ramsey
Newcastle have enquired about Aaron Ramsey's availability at Juventus, according to Goal.
The former Arsenal midfielder has frequently been linked with a return to the Premier League since making the move to Serie A in 2019.
Ramsey was one of Wales' leading performers in Wales' Euro 2020 campaign as Rob Page's side fell at the first knockout hurdle to Denmark.
Goal claim there is no 'shortage of interest' in the 30-year-old, and that discussions between Newcastle and Juventus have been very 'informal' at this stage.
Ramsey is contracted until 2023, and Massimiliano Allegri has stressed the Welsh international's importance to the team throughout pre-season.
Newcastle United have been 'offered' the opportunity to sign forgotten Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz, according to Jeunes Footeux via Sport Witness.
The 28-year-old has made just eight La Liga starts in the last three seasons, and was originally re-signed by the Spanish giants following an impressive spell at Lyon.
However, the financial ramifications of the Covid-19 pandemic mean Real are keen to balance the books and are reportedly looking to offload Diaz in this window.
Newcastle are said to be 'interested' in a potential deal, but have so far not made a transfer a 'priority' at this stage.
Despite his lack of game-time, the title also claim Diaz is in no 'rush' to leave the Spanish capital.
