Benitez facing major interest in Newcastle star, six Premier League clubs chasing England man

Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend is a transfer target for up to SIX Premier League clubs this summer, according to the Sun.

The England international only arrived on Tyneside in January, though his form towards the tail end of the season is believed to have attracted a lot of interest.

He was even called up to the provisional Three Lions squad for Euro 2016, though narrowly missed out after he was cut from the final three by manager Roy Hodgson.

A £12m signing from Tottenham Hotspur merely months ago, the 24-year old is believed to have a £10.5m release clause on his deal with the Toon Army.

Liverpool and Manchester City are understood to be casting a watchful eye over his situation in the North East following the Magpies’ relegation, while West Bromwich Albion and Watford have also been linked.

Southampton, Everton, Swansea and Crystal Palace are listed as potential suitors in the report.
