Newcastle United simply have to go all out to land this £22.5m-rated Russian World Cup star

Newcastle United will be hoping to make some significant signings in the coming weeks as manager Rafa Benitez seeks to add some real quality to his squad.

Last season saw Benitez pull off something of a miracle by keeping the Magpies in the top flight, and many Newcastle fans have been crying out for owner Mike Ashley to back the club this summer and make sure they once again maintain their Premier League status.

That looks set to become a reality too, with news emerging this weekend of potential funds being made available for Benitez.

We here at the Transfer Tavern think the Spaniard would use the money very wisely, and one player we think would be a simply superb addition for the club is Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, who was in brilliant nick for his country this summer.

The £22.5m-rated star has already drawn plenty of admiring glances from some of the top clubs in Europe, which makes it even more impressive if Newcastle could indeed snap him up.

The Toon Army deserve to see their club bring in some top quality additions, and in Golovin, Newcastle would be getting a player who really does have the potential to be a world class star in the long run.

Good in possession, and capable of contirbuting at both ends, Golovin would be a simply superb addition for the Magpies if Benitez is given the funds to strengthen.

Newcastle fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
