Newcastle United are reportedly making strides in negotiations with the representative of promising Arsenal talent, Amario Cozier-Duberry, for a potential summer transfer. 

The 18-year-old Arsenal academy star has entered the final six months of his contract, allowing him to explore options with foreign clubs, with several European giants expressing interest.

Cozier-Duberry’s stellar performance in the Premier League 2, scoring 9 goals and 5 assists in just 17 matches this season, has garnered attention across the continent. Despite being long heralded as one of Arsenal’s top prospects, his future at the club seems uncertain as contract talks linger amidst growing interest from other clubs.

Clubs like Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, and Anderlecht, alongside Newcastle and Brighton, are reportedly vying for Cozier-Duberry’s signature, with the former able to engage in pre-contract negotiations given his contractual situation. While Arsenal remain in discussions with the player, no agreement has been reached, raising speculation about his potential departure.

Recent reports indicate that Newcastle are actively engaging with Cozier-Duberry’s representatives, signalling their eagerness to secure his services. Despite training with Arsenal’s first team and impressing during preseason, the young attacker has been sparsely utilised in competitive matches, fueling doubts about his future with the Gunners.

Criticism has been directed towards Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for the limited opportunities afforded to burgeoning talents like Cozier-Duberry, Ethan Nwaneri, and Reuell Walters, with fans clamouring for a clearer pathway to the first team. 

Despite accolades from former Gunners manager Jack Wilshire, who likened Cozier-Duberry to Bukayo Saka, the lack of game time may influence his decision on whether to extend his stay at the club.

Last season’s impressive performances for Arsenal’s U18s, including an impressive FA Youth Cup Final run, further underscore Cozier-Duberry’s potential. However, his desire for regular first-team action could pose a challenge for Arsenal’s retention efforts as they seek to secure his long-term commitment.
