The Magpies have all but secured safety in the Premier League this season and have started planning towards their recruitment in the forthcoming summer transfer window.


Since taking over at Newcastle, boss Eddie Howe has been keen on bolstering his backline, although the Tyneside giants failed with their efforts to land any of their top centre-back targets in January.



Newcastle still see centre-back and striker as priority positions that need strengthening in the summer and are in the process of identifying several targets.


And according to German daily Bild, the Magpies have Frankfurt centre-half Ndicka in their sights ahead of the summer window.



The 22-year-old’s current deal at Eintracht Frankfurt expires in the summer of 2023, and the forthcoming window provides them one of their last opportunities to earn a substantial fee from his departure.


Should Newcastle decide to swoop for Ndicka in the next window, he is tipped to command a fee in the €25m region.



In addition to Ndicka, the likes of Benoit Badiashile and Diego Carlos are among the other centre-backs currently linked with Newcastle.
