Newcastle United are reportedly exploring a possible move for highly-rated Norwich City goalkeeper Jon McCracken.
According to Football Insider, the Magpies are keen on bringing the 19-year-old to St James’ Park this summer to bolster their goalkeeping options.
McCracken wasn’t included in a matchday squad at Carrow Road last season, with the Canaries clinching the Championship title with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on the final day.
The Scotland youth international has yet to turn out in a first-team encounter after joining from Hamilton in 2016, featuring predominantly in the Under-23 side.
And McCracken’s impressive Premier League 2 performances have reportedly caught the eye of Newcastle officials.
Boss Daniel Farke looks set to be active in the market for a new number one ahead of the new season, with experienced keeper Tim Krul producing some inconsistent displays in the Championship.
And with Farke keen on adding to his options between the sticks, McCracken could be given the green light to depart Carrow Road, ending his three-year association with the club in the process.
Four keepers Norwich may target this summer
Roma’s Olsen looks set to leave Italy over the summer, 12 months on after joining the Serie A giants. The Swede could be a realistic option for the Canaries, with Watford also thought to be keen on the player.
Bournemouth youngster Travers made his first-team debut against Tottenham last month and produced a man of the match performance for the Cherries. The teenager could be a possible option for a season-long loan if Bournemouth are unwilling to sell.
If Premier League experience is what Daniel Farke is after, then Burnley’s Hart could be a shrewd signing. The former Manchester City and England number one has fallen down the pecking order at Turf Moor under Sean Dyche.
Liverpool’s Mignolet is another who has plenty of experience and looks set to leave Anfield this summer in search of regular game time.
