The Magpies want to bolster their midfield options and have the Belgian powerhouse on their radar.
Newcastle’s midfield took a major hit when Sandro Tonali received a lengthy ban for his involvement in the Italian betting scandal that rocked football last year.
They have also had to deal with a plethora of injuries, including one to Joelinton that could rule him out for the rest of the season.
The Brazilian may never play for the Magpies again as he is entering the final 18 months of his contract with the club and could be sold this summer if he refuses to sign a new deal.
Joelinton reportedly wants over £150,000 a week, and the Magpies are not keen on agreeing to that figure.
Bruno Guimaraes’ future is also up in the air, with Paris Saint-Germain interested in the Brazilian.
Consequently, Newcastle are after midfield reinforcements and Onana is an option. Everton are open to selling the 22-year-old despite him thriving under manager Sean Dyche.
The Merseyside club breached Premier League Profit and Sustainability rules twice this season and need to sell to balance their books.
Newcastle have been discussing new signings this week, and Onana’s name was reportedly a hot topic even though his £50 million valuation could be the problem.
Manchester United and Arsenal are also interested in Onana, and Newcastle could face a fight to sign the midfielder.
Onana is a midfielder with terrific potential who could bolster Newcastle’s midfield options.
However, they have other targets on their shortlist, including Manchester City’s wantaway midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
