The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern are brimming with excitement at the prospect of a new investment.
The Daily Star has exclusively revealed that talks between Newcastle United representatives and Amanda Staveley in London earlier this week with a view to establishing a possible transfer budget for Rafa Benitez.
According to this report, Newcastle United manager Benitez will be handed a war chest of up to £100m with which to strengthen his squad.
And The Daily Star has revealed Newcastle’s three top targets with a left-back, a midfielder and a new striker on their wishlist.
During the meeting, discussions were held over the three targets.
West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been touted for a return to St James’ Park.
The towering and physical centre forward has fallen below Javier Hernandez in the pecking order at struggling West Ham United and could be set for a move back to Tyneside.
Meanwhile, Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is on Newcastle’s radar.
The former Southampton star has struggled to adjust since his big money move to Man United and he finds himself out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
Ross Barkley is the third option for the Magpies.
The Everton midfielder has a precarious contract situation and the struggling Toffees might cash in on him.
