Newcastle United have reportedly emerged as suitors for Bayern München defender Niklas Süle following their Saudi-led takeover.




According to Bild's head of football, Christian Falk, the English Premier League side are interested in the centre-back.

Süle is out of contract at the German champions next summer and is stalling over a new deal.

The 26-year-old German international recently refused to commit his future to Bayern, telling Süddeutsche Zeitung:

"Of course I'm thinking about my future, but I really can't say yet what it will bring.


"I never said that I definitely have to leave, but I never said that I definitely have to stay here either.

"I know what I have at the club. But I also know that such decisions are always about trust - trust from me to the club, but especially vice versa.

"It's possible that I say: 'I'm on a free transfer and want to try something new'.

"Everything is open in every direction. I can imagine anything."

At the same time, Newcastle are keeping tabs on another German international in the shape of Chelsea forward Timo Werner, per Falk's information.

Falk has also addressed reports linking Ralf Rangnick with the manager job on Tyneside, claiming that the former RB Leipzig chief is indeed interested in a role at the club.
