Valencia stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili has three reasons for wanting to join Newcastle United this summer

Earlier this week, it was reported from England that Newcastle United are monitoring Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili, ahead of a possible move during the summer transfer window. The Georgian international is having another fine campaign with Los Che, although he could be in line for a new adventure from next season.

Relevo have since confirmed Newcastle have scouted Mamardashvili on no less than five occasions throughout this season. Currently, they are best-placed to secure his signature, which they believe would come at a minimum cost of €35m.

According to the report, Mamardashvili is attracted to be prospect of joining Newcastle in the summer, with three positives having been identified. The 23-year-old prioritises a move to the Premier League, and he has also been promised that he would be first-choice goalkeeper at St James’ Park, ahead of current number one Nick Pope. Thirdly, he sees Newcastle as having a great project for regular European football.

It’s unlikely that a deal will be pursued by Newcastle until they understand their FFP situation, but for now, they are leading the race for Mamardashvili. Valencia could be resigned to finally losing him.
