Newcastle want SPAL's Vicari

Rafa Benitez has reportedly asked Newcastle United to sign SPAL defender Francesco Vicari.

According to Sport Mediaset, the Magpies have set their sights on the 24-year-old centre-back.

An approach could well be made in January by the Premier League side.

Vicari came up through the Novara youth academy and joined SPAL in the summer of 2016.

He played a crucial part in getting the Spallini promoted from Serie B in 2016-17.
