Newcastle are preparing for life back in the Premier League under Rafa Benitez and are being linked with a host of new players following their promotion from the Championship.
In Benitez, the Toon have a manage who knows exactly what he is doing and is experienced enough to know just what his side needs heading into the August kick off.
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks that with a few solid additions, the Magpies could surprise a few in the top flight and even mount a challenge for the top ten. He’s been in some deep discussions this week out in the beer garden with the Toon Army, and one name he has mentioned who they could take a punt on is current Spurs striker Vincent Janssen.
The Dutchman spent the season woefully out of form following his big money move to London last summer, but there are those that think there is certainly a decent centre forward in there, he just needs some confidence.
The chance to move to the North East and play in front of passionate supporters like the Toon Army are, could be the sort of thing which is the making of someone like Janssen, who will surely not want to give up on the Premier League just yet.
Newcastle will need goals, and Janssen might well be the answer if the club could persuade Spurs to part ways with the striker on a loan deal.
Newcastle fans, what do you think? Good signing or no chance? Let us know!
