Arsenal, Everton and West Ham among a dozen clubs eyeing Newcastle's Matty Longstaff

Arsenal, Everton and West Ham are among a host of clubs eyeing a move for Matty Longstaff as the midfielder considers leaving Newcastle this summer.

The teenager is out-of-contract at the end of the season and is yet to agree new terms on an extension, with reports suggesting the Newcastle academy graduate is considering a departure from his boyhood side.

According to TEAMtalk, Arsenal, Everton and West Ham are all monitoring Longstaff’s situation, whilst there is also interest on the continent from as many as a dozen clubs with Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Atalanta, Ajax and Club Brugge all reported to have made approaches for the youngster.

Longstaff – alongside brother Sean who has two-and-a-half years to run on his deal – has been in talks over a new deal at St James’ Park but a breakthrough has so far failed to materialise, and there is now a growing fear on Tyneside that the club may lose their homegrown stars.

Matty’s situation is especially concerning as he enters the final months of his deal, the 19-year-old emerging as a target for a host of clubs after making 12 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies so far this season.

The midfielder has scored two league goals for the club since making his debut, both coming against Manchester United.
