Newcastle wanted to sign him in January but were unable to agree on a fee with the French side, who turned down a £30million offer.

According to Gianluca DiMarzio, Toon retains an interest in the defender along with AC Milan, United and Spurs.

However, the journalist claims Milan are not ready to meet Lille’s asking price, which is estimated at around £34m-38m.

Lille’s lofty demands could play into the hands of Premier League sides, who are likely to have bigger budgets than Milan.

After a move fell through in January, Botman admitted he expects to take the next step in his career this summer.

He is fascinated by the Newcastle project but may also be tempted by the chance to work alongside compatriot Erik ten Hag at United.

Botman said of his future in February: “Everyone says about Newcastle – it’s all about money.

“But it’s a very nice project if you look at where Man City and PSG started. I think it would be very nice to be a part of it, but Milan are a nice club.”

Botman added: “I’m fine in Lille for now. I expect to make a good step in my career next summer.”

“You never know in football. This time, both Newcastle and Milan have been in very concrete talks.

“Both clubs have their positive sides.”

Botman has also previously spoken out about United’s interest, stating he would be interested in an Old Trafford move.

He said last summer: “It’s a nice compliment to hear that these clubs are interested.

“I’m lying when I say I don’t care – it’s the first time such big clubs have been linked with me – but it was early days because I was only at Lille for half a season in January.

“It was nice to hear, but I was focused on Lille and I still am. After the season, I’ll enjoy a holiday and see what happens next.

“If I’m being honest, the Premier League is one of those leagues I’ve dreamed of… but so is Serie A, La Liga, the Bundesliga. The Premier League is something special. It’s the football that I really like and that suits me.”
