Newcastle chasing £52m-rated world class 20-year-old as Botman replacement

Newcastle United has had a difficult season, and the recent long-term injury to Sven Botman is just one more unfortunate event for the team.

If Eddie Howe’s team had been at full strength throughout the 2023/24 season, it is impossible to predict how close they could have been to capturing some well-deserved trophies.

Currently, they have been eliminated from the Champions League and the domestic cup competitions, and it will be extremely challenging for them to secure a spot in Europe for the upcoming season.

Currently, Newcastle is positioned in 10th place with a total of 40 points, trailing 13 points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fifth place and 16 points behind Aston Villa in fourth place.

Newcastle is considering Scalvini as a potential successor for Botman.
At this juncture, their most optimistic outcome might be securing a place in the upcoming Europa Conference League, which, to be frank, would be a significant letdown.

In addition, the absence of strong European opponents is unlikely to be an appealing factor for the club, as they are eager to lure the most talented football players to St. James’ Park.
