Newcastle join race for Super Eagles-eligible star on the radar of AC Milan, Liverpool, West Ham

Newcastle United have joined the long queue of clubs interested in signing Fulham star Tosin Adarabioyo, reports.

Adarabioyo has been one of the standout performers for Fulham this season, with his defensive partnership with Super Eagles defender Calvin Bassey bearing significant fruits.

Their centre-back pairing is one of the major reasons Fulham are 14 points adrift of the relegation waters with only six games left.

However, Adarabioyo is into the last six months of his contract with Fulham, and he is almost certainly set to leave the Cottagers this summer as a free agent.

With 104 appearances in the Championship and another 76 in the Premier League, Adarabioyo comes with loads of experience, and it is no surprise that top European clubs are keen to snap him up.

Italian giants AC Milan have been on the 26-year-old’s case since last summer, while several English clubs, including Liverpool and West Ham, are also interested.

According to Bein Sports, Newcastle are also interested, and the Magpies have reportedly placed the former Manchester City ace on their radar ahead of a busy summer.

Apart from joining a new club, the end of the season could also see Adarabioyo earn a first call-up to the Nigerian national team.

Adarabioyo played for England at the youth level, but he is yet to be called up for the Three Lions.

He is set to miss out again on England’s squad to the European Championships later this year.

That could help Adarabioyo decide to play for Nigeria, the birthplace of his parents.

Adarabioyo could be in line for his first Super Eagles call-up ahead of Nigeria’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa in June.
