With the news that Alexandre Lacazette has rejected the chance to move to Newcastle United and the Premier League, the Magpies will be swiftly looking elsewhere for alternative targets.
McClaren knows that he desperately needs to start winning games sooner rather than later as he looks to move out of the Premier League relegation zone, and in order to do so he will need to look at other forward options who would bolster his side’s goalscoring potential.
The fact that the Magpies saw a club-record bid of £22 million accepted by Lyon and yet Lacazette still favoured to stay in France, which suggests that the club were perhaps being slightly ambitious in their efforts and should perhaps be looking for more realistic targets who would actually consider the move.
