Newcastle are closing in on a triple signing with England striker Callum Wilson arriving to complete his transfer from Bournemouth on Monday morning

Newcastle are set to sign three new players: Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson, Norwich left-back Jamal Lewis and free agent Ryan Fraser.

Fraser, 26, will undergo his medical exam on Monday, a day after Wilson awaits his test results and is in the process of formalizing his deal ahead of a £ 20million move from Bournemouth.

Lewis is set to undergo a medical exam on Tuesday after Norwich accepted a £ 15million offer – as Newcastle prepare to announce a triple blow for the players, including two of the relegated sides.

Wilson and Fraser hold the record for most combined goals in a Premier League season (12) – set in the 2017/18 campaign for Bournemouth – while Lewis, 22, had been a target for Liverpool over early in the transfer window, and is currently on international service with Northern Ireland.

Scotland international Fraser has been a free agent since his contract at Bournemouth ended in June, when he chose not to sign an extra time to play at Vitality Stadium in the restart of the Premier League season.

Fraser had been linked with a move to West Ham and Crystal Palace but, after having face-to-face talks with Steve Bruce on Friday, he decided his future lay on Tyneside.

Fraser was keen to know if Newcastle had landed their friend and former teammate before making his final decision, as he wanted to make sure they could rekindle their partnership at St James’ Park.

Wilson, meanwhile, was the subject of a bidding war between Aston Villa and Newcastle over the weekend, with Villa withdrawing their £ 21million offer for the 28-year-old striker after hearing of his preference for moving to Tyneside.

Sky Sports News Newcastle reported on Wednesday that Newcastle had had initial talks with Fraser but still disagreed on personal terms, with the winger wanting to move to the northeast to be closer to his family in Aberdeen.

Fraser joined Bournemouth for £ 400,000 in January 2013 when they were part of Ligue 1, and during his time at the club they were promoted twice as the Cherries reached first place for the first time in their history in 2015.

He then made 229 appearances during his six-and-a-half-year stint at Vitality Stadium – scoring 30 goals for the club during that time – and had previously attracted interest from Arsenal.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, remain interested in a deal for ex-player Matt Ritchie, who signed a new deal at Newcastle in March – although the midfielder’s salaries may be an issue.
