Sky Germany reports that Newcastle United have recently sent scouts to watch RB Leipzig duo Dominik Szoboszlai and Amadou Haidara.
Scouts have been present at both home and away games of Leipzig and most recently at their loss to Bayer Leverkusen. Newcastle are more interested in signing Szoboszlai. The 22-year-old’s contract at Leipzig expires in 2026 and he is currently valued at €40m by transfermarkt.
While Haidara’s contract at Leipzig expires in 2025 and the 25-year-old is valued at €17m. Haidara has had long-term admires in the Premier League with Manchester United as well as Newcastle consistently being linked with the Mali international.
Szoboszlai and Haidara are products of the Red Bull system developing at FC Liefering then moving on to Red Bull Salzburg before finally ending up in Leipzig.
Both have featured predominantly for Leipzig this season with Haidara playing 39 times due to the absence at times of Konrad Laimer as well as Xaver Schlager. While Szoboszlai is having his best season in the Bundesliga having scored seven and assisted 13 in his 41 games, with his best form coming under Marco Rose.
