Newcastle target Rasmus Hojlund is expected to hire a new agent “very soon”, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Magpies are known to be keen admirers of the Denmark international, along with Arsenal and Manchester United, and Romano says the striker will change representative ahead of the summer transfer window:
Understand Rasmus Højlund will be set to appoint a new agent very soon, as top European clubs are following him ⭐️🇩🇰
Højlund has five goals in two starts for Danish national team — sounds huge after excellent first season in Serie A with Atalanta.

As Romano points out, Hojlund had an incredible international break, scoring five times for his country against Finland and Kazakhstan in European Championship qualifiers.
His first campaign for Atalanta has been slightly less spectacular, scoring eight times in total so far, but his club are already preparing for a potential sale at the end of the season.
Reports in Italy suggest Atalanta may be willing to part ways with Hojlund for €50m (£44m). That figure won’t be a problem for Newcastle. Manager Eddie Howe is said to be keen on strengthening his forward line. There have already been links with Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram and Athletico Paranaense’s Vitor Roque but Hojlund would probably be rated as a more attractive target.
