Rostov’s Mathias Normann is another name under consideration.
The list of centre-backs is lengthy – Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo, Lyon’s Joachim Andersen, PSV’s Timo Baumgartl, Sampdoria’s Omar Colley are among the names in the mix.
Any hopes of a move for Newcastle’s Fabian Schar have been ended though.
He had shoulder surgery in the summer, returned to the Newcastle side at the weekend though was forced off injured on his return against Burnley at the weekend after hurting the same shoulder.
