Rasmus Højlund is a forward for Serie A club Atalanta B.C. and the Denmark national team.
The 20-year-old has scored eight goals in his first season of the Serie A showing potential to be a top striker in Europe.
Højlund scored a hattrick in Denmark’s qualifier victory over Finland on Thursday grabbing the attention of clubs across Europe.
Calciomercto has a report on the player. When discussing his suitors, Newcastle is mentioned. It’s claimed Eddie Howe’s side has been interested in Højlund ‘for a month’ and have already sent their scouts to closely observe him.
They add the €50m fee may no longer be enough for Atalanta president Antonio Percassi to “dream of a maxi capital gain” from the star potential sale.
Højlund joined Atalanta from Sturm Graz last Summer, and has managed eight goals and two assists from 25 matches in his debut season.
