Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern will be hoping that their side can bring in a striker this summer having witnessed Joselu’s inability to find the back of the net last season.
The Magpies will need to make major improvements over the course of the summer if they are to challenge for a European spot next season, as plenty of other teams around them will be strengthening in preparation for the start of the next campaign. Interestingly, it looks as if Newcastle are taking a look at a striker, as according to the Mirror, Newcastle United are interested in Liverpool’s Danny Ings.
Encouragingly, the Englishman wants to leave Liverpool as he goes on in search of regular first-team football.
And, with Newcastle desperately needing to bring in a striker having failed to make the most of promising opportunities in front of goal last season – securing Danny Ings would guarantee them a consistent goal flow.
However, it’s understood that Crystal Palace are also interested in securing the 25-year-old’s services.
So, Benitez may finally get rid of the ineffective Joselu if they manage to land Danny Ings this summer, as the former Burnley forward would push him even further down the pecking order. Many of our local residents are absolutely delighted with the news as the Magpies have been crying out for a prolific goalscorer.
