Newcastle United: Magpies target January move for Oleksandr Zinchenko -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly targeting a move in the January transfer window for Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The Lowdown: Lack of minutes

Despite the unavailability of Benjamin Mendy this season, the Ukraine left-back has still seen his minutes reduced at Manchester City, with just six games played so far across all competitions.

Should Newcastle sign Zinchenko?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, he did impress in central midfield in their 2-1 win at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night, helping to keep Lionel Messi quiet with his ‘mammoth effort’ (Manchester Evening News), as the Argentine superstar was reduced to just one shot at the Etihad Stadium.

Nonetheless, Pep Guardiola can still call upon a plethora of options in the middle of the park, so it may now be time for Zinchenko to move on.

The Latest: Newcastle target

As per The Daily Mail, the 24-year-old is now on Newcastle’s list of transfer targets ahead of January.

They are reportedly weighing up an ‘ambitious’ loan move for the Ukraine international as City search for new signings in the left-back area.

The Verdict: Get it done

A loan move for Zinchenko is perfect for the Magpies’ situation, given that they are battling relegation from the Premier League. In the worst-case scenario that they do go down, the 24-year-old can then return to the Etihad at the end of the campaign, but he could certainly help to keep Newcastle up in the meantime.

Dubbed as an ‘exceptional’ player by Guardiola back in May, his ability to play in multiple positions could be so useful to Eddie Howe’s squad.

Having won numerous trophies at Manchester City as well, including three Premier League titles (Transfermarkt), Zinchenko has a winning mentality which could be vital in Newcastle’s dressing room as they aim to stave off relegation.
