Everton & Newcastle United interested in Weston McKennie

Premier League duo Everton and Newcastle United have shown an interest in signing 21-year-old Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie, according to Bild.

With no European football next season for the Bundesliga club, Schalke sporting director Jochen Schneider would be open to selling the United States international, but only for a substantial fee.

McKennie has a dream to play in the Premier League: “For me, the next goal is England. It has always been my dream to play in the Premier League.”

With a contract until 2024, a potential suitor will need to pay in upwards of €25 million.
