Former Premier League star Carlton Palmer insists that Newcastle United need to sign a striker in the January transfer window.
The Magpies have endured a terrible start to the season under Steve Bruce.
They have yet to win a game, drawing with Southampton, Leeds United, and Watford, and losing to West Ham United, Aston Villa, and Manchester United.
Are Newcastle over reliant on Wilson?
Bruce’s side have conceded 14 goals in that time, the second-most in the league, and have scored just seven goals.
Their current top scorers are Allan Saint-Maximin, a winger, and the striker Callum Wilson, who each have two goals to their name. The other three scorers are Jacob Murphy, another winger, Javier Manquillo, a defender, and the midfielder Sean Longstaff.
However, Palmer thinks that the club need to bring in back-up to Wilson if they are to enjoy a successful remainder of the campaign.
He said: “For sure, they’re going to need to do that.”
Newcastle are next in action against Wolves this weekend and will be hoping to put their first win on the board.
