There has been numerous left-backs linked with Newcastle in past few months. According to multiple reports emanating from England, Newcastle United will make a move for Antonee Robinson. The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

He has featured in 13 matches for Fulham this term in all competitions.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in USA. Robinson has scored two goals in 32 games for his country.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Newcastle.
Antonee Robinson is a long-term target of Newcastle and could be a decent addition for Eddie Howe’s side.
The Magpies are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Wigan Athletic man would be a versatile addition for the Newcastle, having featured at left-back and in a wider midfield role.
World Football Rumours
According to the report, “Newcastle are ready to join the chase for Fulham and United States defender Antonee Robinson. Robinson has caught the eye for Fulham on their return to the Premier League this season and the jet-heeled full-back has also impressed for USA at the World Cup. The 25-year-old helped USA keep a clean sheet in the goalless draw with England last week and played a key role in helping the Americans reach the last 16, where they were knocked out by the Netherlands. Newcastle are in the market for a new left-back, with centre-back Dan Burn currently playing at full-back in Eddie Howe’s starting XI. Howe is keen for a specialist left-back to be added to his squad as Newcastle look to continue their surprise bid for a top four finish and Robinson is on his list of targets.”
The Cottagers are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the left-back, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
It would take a huge offer from Newcastle to prise the 25-year-old left-back from Fulham.
Good signing for Newcastle United?
Signing the left-back could be a good decision as he could improve Howe’s defensive options.
Antonee Robinson has all the skillset required to be a success story at St. James’ Park. Therefore, it makes sense for Eddie Howe to step up his attempts to bring the USA left-back to Newcastle.
It will be interesting to see where the player ends up this winter.
