Newcastle eye Barcelona winger Ferran Torres

Barcelona winger Ferran Torres is the latest wide player to fall under the gaze of Newcastle United.

Torres recently split with his girlfriend Luis Enrique’s daughter Sira Martinez.

And, as revealed in Mail Sport columnist Simon Jones’ latest Transfer Confidential column, he may be getting shunned by Barcelona too this summer as they weigh up sales.

Despite raising £40m with the departures of Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets, Barca need another £160m to break even on Financial Fair Play in the eyes of LaLiga.

Keen to still add Lionel Messi, they are due to make another presentation to the league on the state of their finances.

Former Manchester City flyer Torres, 23, is a candidate to go.

Ex-Leeds winger Raphinha is another player who could leave.

After qualifying for the Champions League, Magpies boss Eddie Howe is keen to bolster his attacking ranks.

They could strike a deal for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, with the club preferring players with Premier League experience.
