Newcastle United have joined Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea in the chase for Inter Milan defender Federico Dimarco.

The Magpies are keen on strengthening their squad and sees Dimarco as a valuable addition, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.

The Italy international is currently regarded as one of the top left-backs globally, playing a pivotal role for Simone Inzaghi’s side.

While Dimarco has been in talks with Inter Milan for a contract renewal recently, the negotiations seem to be lingering, igniting concerns within the Inter camp about potentially losing one of their standout performers.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have been keeping tabs on the highly-rated defender in recent months, but they now face increased competition.
