NEWCASTLE are set to snatch stopper Robert Sanchez from Brighton and make him their new No 1.

Eddie Howe’s scouts are tracking the extrovert keeper and Toon are lining up a £20million offer in the summer.

Sanchez, 24, has emerged as one of the best young keepers in the Premier League and also has a strong personality for the demanding job.

Howe is looking for a new keeper and has checked out other targets but insiders reveal that Sanchez is the Newcastle boss’ favoured choice.

Brighton will want big money for their discovery, who came through youth ranks at the Amex but the two clubs have already done business for Dan Burn during January’s transfer window.

Dan Ashworth is due to be appointed Toon’s director of football after stepping down as Brighton technical director in February.

The clubs are working on his start date but that may yet be delayed until September, despite efforts to bring it forward.

Newcastle are also targeting winger Ismaila Sarr. The Senegal star looks certain to leave Watford even if they stay up.

Sarr, 24, joined the Hornets from French club Rennes for a club-record £30million in 2019 so Newcastle can expect to pay more than that.

He has two years left on his contract but even at £35m, it would be good business for Newcastle.

Liverpool have also sent scouts to watch the winger.

Sarr has scored five Premier League goals for struggling Watford this season including one November's 4-1 rout over Manchester United.

He also bagged the equaliser in the Hornets' 1-1 draw against Toon in September.
