Newcastle United managed to return to winning ways yesterday as they got the better of Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Magpies are slowly creeping up the table under Rafa Benitez after a terrible start to proceedings, with the January transfer window being vital at this point in their season. Indeed, it’s thought that the Tyneside club are eyeing a possible addition, as according to The Daily Mail, Newcastle are targeting a move for Michal Travnik.
Newcastle United are following Czech Republic midfielder Michal Travnik, but Fulham are also in the race.
Indeed, the 24-year-old has been prolific in the current campaign having scored 10 goals in 17 appearances for current club Jablonec.
He has five caps for his country and is valued at around £4 million by his club, but the likes of Augsburg and CSKA Moscow have also been impressed.
Mohamed Diame has struggled to make an impact in the current campaign, so bringing in a central midfielder could prove vital in terms of adding a possible goal threat and providing balance.
Newcastle definitely need to bring in reinforcements in the summer transfer window, with a number of improvements required in different areas on the field.
However, with Travnik currently attracting the attention of a number of European clubs, perhaps the Magpies’ will struggle to secure his services due to a lack of European football.
