Eddie Howe refuses to pledge he’ll keep Newcastle up – while Juventus are tipped to target Anthony Martial and Alexandre Lacazette.

New Toon boss Howe will get the first £50million of huge transfer sprees from the Toon’s new Saudi owners in January.

And the ex-Bournemouth chief said: “I’m absolutely confident we can survive but I make no promises.

“The task ahead is huge. It’s a very, very difficult challenge. I’m under no illusions.”

Manchester United striker Martial and Arsenal hitman Lacazette are said to be Juve’s back-up options if they miss out on Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic.

And the chase for Serbia superstar Vlahovic is intensifying.

Arsenal have reportedly joined Tottenham in pursuing the 21-year-old, rated up to £68million

But Vlahovic is thought likely to snub any bid from the Gunners in January as he wants to wait to see which other clubs show an interest next summer.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are keen on Adrien Rabot but would need to persuade the France midfielder to snub Real Madrid.

And Manchester City have joined Arsenal, Chelsea, PSG, Real and Juve in eyeing RB Leipzig attacking midfielder Christopher Nkunku.

Centre-back Andreas Christensen says he has ‘no idea’ if his Chelsea deal will be extended past the season.

And West Ham midfield hero Declan Rice has withdrawn from the England squad to face Albania and San Marino due to illness.
