Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern are excited to see who the Magpies will sign now the summer transfer window is officially open – our punters are hoping to challenge for Europe next year.
Rafael Benitez guided the club to tenth in the Premier League despite a lack of investment into the playing squad. The ex-Liverpool manager deserves plenty of credit for his work but now must be backed in the transfer market if the Magpies are to push on. With some new signings, they are capable of challenging for a spot in Europe.
An area of concern will be in attack, with the Spaniard desperately needing some reinforcements to add goals to the side. Joselu failed to impress since moving to Stoke, and Ayoze Perez has been linked with a move away from the club. Now, after Aston Villa’s failed attempt to gain promotion, they should make a move for Jack Grealish.
The 22-year-old has been one of Villa’s key players this season, he would be perfect for Benitez. He can play as a number 10 or out wide and is valued at just £4.5m according to Transfermarkt. Grealish has scored three goals and notched five assists in the Championship.
He is ready to take the step up the Premier League and start fulfilling his potential.
