Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is Chelsea’s second-choice goalkeeper, is under consideration, as is Dean Henderson, who remains behind David de Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Arsenal’s Bernd Leno and West Brom’s Sam Johnstone are also on Newcastle’s shortlist.

Dubravka has kept 33 clean sheets in 118 league appearances for Newcastle since joining the club, initially on loan, in 2018.

Karl Darlow and Mark Gillespie are also at the club, but Howe is eager to make changes to Newcastle’s goalkeeping department.
