David de Gea and Aaron Ramsdale are options for Newcastle ahead of the January transfer window, after goalkeeper Nick Pope was ruled out with a dislocated shoulder.
Pope is facing a significant spell on the sidelines after sustaining a shoulder issue in the 1-0 win over Manchester United at the weekend, with Martin Dúbravka introduced as his replacement at St James’ Park.
With the 31-year-old set for a considerable absence, Newcastle could look to sign a goalkeeper when the transfer window opens next month.
De Gea remains a free agent after leaving Manchester United last summer and would reportedly be open to a move to the Magpies, according to The Telegraph. The Spaniard has been assessing his options since ending a 12-year stay at Old Trafford.
talkSPORT have revealed that Aaron Ramsdale is also under consideration. Ramsdale has lost his position as first-choice goalkeeper at Arsenal following the summer arrival of David Raya and could be open to an exit in search of regular minutes.
The 25-year-old is valued at around £50m at Arsenal, a figure which would put him beyond reach of Newcastle in January, but a loan exit could be agreed as Ramsdale looks to earn his place in the England squad for next summer’s European Championship.
