Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern are desperate for their side to enjoy success next season, with the summer transfer window being of huge importance.
The Magpies struggled to ensure consistency this season, so the summer transfer window should help them strengthen before the start of another Premier League campaign. And, with Rafa Benitez at the helm, many of our local northerners believe that their side may be able to secure a European place next season.
Of course, having witnessed Newcastle United’s struggles in front of goal last season, they’ll be desperate to bring in a striker this summer.
And, many of our local residents have been experiencing flashbacks of Alan Shearer’s brilliance back in the day, as the club have never really managed to replace him at St James’ Park.
Indeed, the 47-year-old is arguably the best striker to have ever played in England, with success never being too far away when he was in the Magpies’ starting XI. So, supporters would love nothing more than to see a striker brought in that can replicate his magic, as goals were never a worry when Shearer was in the side.
With that in mind, landing this striker would surely give Newcastle fans Shearer flashbacks…
Vincent Aboubakar, who is valued at £16.2 million (by Transfermarkt), was prolific this season, with 26 goals and seven assists to his name.
Not only does the striker carry a quite significant goal threat, he is quite creative too. And, having been impressively consistent over the last three years, the 26-year-old is at the perfect stage from which to take his career to the next level, with a move to the Premier League.
So, with supporters still admiring how fantastic Shearer was back in the day, it may not be long until they uncover another Newcastle hero, as Vincent Aboubakar has already shown that he can score an incredible amount of goals with a killer instinct in front of goal.
