Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern will be expecting a busy summer after witnessing the club’s inconsistencies in the campaign just gone. Understandably, Rafa Benitez will need to turn his attention to the summer transfer window, with a permanent signing being craved.
The Magpies have made a rather slow start to the summer transfer window which has caused for many of our local northerners to look on in concern. Indeed, after only managing to bring in three loan players back in January, supporters are dreading a repeat of this.
Although, Rafa Benitez has always managed to work his magic at St James’ Park, so he’ll know that he needs to make the most of the transfer window in order to challenge near the top next season.
Therefore, the Tyneside club desperately need to look at bringing in a proven goalscorer this summer after witnessing Joselu’s misfortunes.
With that in mind, Newcastle United desperately need to bring this player in ASAP…
He may have failed to make an impact during his time at Leicester City, but the Croatian’s scoring record has always been rather impressive, with Newcastle United possibly swooping in for his services this summer.
The 26-year-old, who is valued at £24.3 million (by Transfermarkt), was named in Croatia’s 23-man squad for the World Cup, so he will be looking to impress on the big stage over the course of the next month.
Since joining Hoffenheim in 2016, the striker has scored 28 goals in 68 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit. But, with the German side gearing up for Champions League football next season, the Magpies will need to prepare an enticing offer to stand any chance of luring him to St James’ Park.
