Newcastle United will be desperate to get the better of an in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers side on Monday night, with a trip to Molineux on the cards.
The Magpies still find themselves at risk of slipping into a relegation battle after losing their last Premier League fixture, so they’ll want to come away with all three points tonight.
But, the Tyneside club should also already have one eye on the summer transfer window, with there still being plenty of room for improvements.
Indeed, one player whose contract is up in the summer is Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck. The Englishman is currently out on the sidelines recovering from an injury, but it looks as if he’ll be leaving the Emirates at the end of the season.
Interestingly, the forward won the Champions League and two Premier League titles during his time at Manchester United, and he’s enjoyed a number of successful years in North London as a constant goal threat.
It’s a no-brainer for Mike Ashley if he still hasn’t sold the club by the summer as he has the chance to secure a prolific striker for free. Welbeck leads the line extremely well as he’s able to hold up the ball, as well as offering his own attacking threat, so he’d fit perfectly into Rafa Benitez’s style at St James’ Park.
Newcastle United have had to rely on Salomon Rondon in the final third this season and even his future isn’t necessarily certain at St James’ Park as he’s currently on loan from West Bromwich Albion.
So, the Magpies can secure themselves a constant flow of goals for years to come by landing the pacey striker, which would be sure to put supporters in dreamland.
