According to The Sun, Newcastle United are interested in signing BSC Young Boys defender Loris Benito in the summer transfer window.
It has been reported by the British tabloid that Benito is leaving Young Boys this summer and is available on a free transfer this summer.
Newcastle are claimed to be keen on securing the services of the 27-year-old full-back as a free agent.
According to The Sun, the Swiss defender is keen on playing in the Premier League.
Benito is a very good full-back, and at 27, he is at the right age to make a move to a big club in the Premier League.
Newcastle do need a capable and experienced full-back, and Benito does fit the bill.
Moreover, the 27-year-old is a free agent, and that is very appealing to Newcastle, as the Magpies do not have to pay any transfer fee for him.
Newcastle will be aiming to break into the top 10 of the Premier League next season.
