Newcastle are reportedly interested in signing Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea during the January transfer window.
According to The Telegraph, Graham Potter would be willing to let Ziyech leave as the 29-year-old has failed to perform consistently since joining in February 2020.
However, the Chelsea boss would be against letting Gallagher and Loftus-Cheek leave as he is concerned about the escalating injury problem within his squad.

All three players could be interested in leaving Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window as they are struggling to cement a place in Potter’s starting XI.
Plus, the January arrivals of Mykhailo Mudryk, Joao Felix and Benoit Badiashile at Chelsea could push them further down Potter’s pecking order.
Loftus-Cheek has been a long-term target for Newcastle. They registered an interest in signing him during the past two summer windows but failed to secure his services.

Newcastle have also registered an interest in Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay – who has struggled for playing time since Casemiro’s arrival at Old Trafford last summer.
The 26-year-old Scotland international made his last start for the club during United’s 6-3 loss to Manchester City in October and has has since been used a late substitute on several occasions.
According to The Telegraph, McTominay would be open to joining Newcastle as he is concerned about his lack of pitch-time under Dutch manager Erik ten Hag.

Newcastle are also keeping tabs on Ruben Neves as they believe the midfielder would be a valuable addition to their squad.
However, Eddie Howe must be cautious with his budget and ‘has been warned that whatever he spends during the January window will be taken from the summer budget’.
It is believed Howe is prioritising signing another central midfield player. However, he is also interested in signing a winger and right-back during the January window.
