Our landlord reckons Newcastle could return to the Premier League with a bang – but only if they pull off some fantastic business during the summer transfer window.
Indeed, Rafa Benitez seems to have settled on his style of play and the majority of his first-team squad, but the Spaniard needs to source some genuine Premier League quality this summer if the Magpies are to do anything more than avoid relegation next season.
Not every Magpies fan in the Tavern is exactly on board with the idea of taking off-cuts from other Premier League sides, but if there’s one club they’re willing to make an exception for it’s Chelsea; not only are they reigning champions, they also have a vast array of promising youngsters on their books.
Newcastle have already snapped up Christian Atsu and have been linked with a loan deal for Blues strike prodigy Tammy Abraham, so our landlord’s taken it upon himself to outline three more Chelsea fringe players the Tynesiders should target this summer.
