Rafa Benitez 'considering' move for Newcastle United midfielder
Rafa Benitez is considering a move for Newcastle United’s Sean Longstaff, according to a report on Merseyside.
Longstaff – who was handed his debut by then-manager Benitez in 2019 – has a year left on his contract at St James’s Park.
The Liverpool Echo claim that a move for the midfielder is “under consideration” at Everton, the club Benitez joined in June.
For his part, Longstaff is focused on the new Premier League season, which kicks off this weekend. The 23-year-old: “I’ve had a pretty strong start to pre-season, and the more goals I can score, the more good performances I can put in will help the team, and hopefully get me on the pitch. I’m really excited for the season."
