Report: Newcastle, Arsenal Hoping To Sign Georginio Rutter

Arsenal have the threat of Newcastle United to deal with for the transfer of young Rennes attacker Georginio Rutter.

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Arsenal and Manchester United are both interested in the 18-year-old attacker.

Georginio Rutter has one year left on his contract with his French Ligue 1 side and interested clubs have been told to pay €10m for him.

English clubs Arsenal and Newcastle United are not the only teams to show an interest in the teen sensation.

Other European sides like Lyon, RB Leipzig and AC Milan are also in the running to sign the player.

Newcastle United have spent some money this summer and it’s unlikely that club owner Mike Ashley will spend €10m on a player who has one year to go on his existing deal at Rennes.

The Magpies spent £20m on England international Callum Wilson who joined the club from Bournemouth.

The Cherries suffered relegation from the Premier League last season and Callum Wilson had to move on.

He has linked up with Ryan Fraser at Newcastle United after the Scottish international signed on a free transfer.

Ryan Fraser had left Bournemouth earlier this summer at the end of his contract with the Cherries.
