Roma Could Get Newcastle Talent through Everton

Roma are not so secretly in the hunt for wingers and have Yankuba Minteh in their crosshairs. They could get an assist from their owner, who’s on the precipice of acquiring Everton. The Toffees might sign the player from Newcastle United and loan him out to the Serie A side, Il Messaggero informs.

The Magpies purchased the prodigy from Odense in July 2023 for €8M but quickly loaned him out to Feyenoord. He posted 11 goals and 6 assists in the most recent campaign. He has five caps with Gambia and hit the net twice with his national team.

Roma faced Minteh and the Dutch side in Europa League playoffs last season, advancing on PKs. The 19-year-old began his career in Denmark before being poached by Newcastle. According to Fabrizio Romano, Olympique Lyonnais are after the talent as well, but he prioritizes joining Everton and playing in the Premier League.

The Giallorossi have shown major interest in Federico Chiesa and Rodrigo Riquelme, but they risk being too expensive for them. Daniele De Rossi is eager to add more firepower on the flanks following a mid-season coaching change and tactical switch.

Our Take on Roma and Minteh

It might be a little too optimistic to lean on an ownership change, which is a complicated process that always takes forever, to have some transfer market plans come to fruition. It’d also be rather fishy if one of the first acts by the Friedkin family were to help out their other team. It also remains to be seen how much Newcastle United want to sell him.
