The Toon Army here in the Transfer Tavern are set to ponder whether Newcastle will look to strengthen and if they are set to bring in some fresh faces heading into the transfer window.
For what is such a big club, who at times of old used to challenge at the summit of the Premier League questions are being asked of the current ambition of the club.
After being promoted to the top flight after a title-winning Championship season, the Tyneside club have taken to the rise in level all too well as they sit in a respectable 9th place after 7 games.
However, unlike last January, Rafa Benitez needs backing from the top. Problems under Mike Ashley are still prevalent, so it’s time for Lee Charnley to deliver his much-celebrated manager with some New Year additions
The man from Gosforth and Benitez have a very close bond together. The 39-year-old quickly climbed the ranks as he worked his way up from managing director, and now looks set to provide for the club in the upcoming transfer window.
Having had previous experience in the Premier League, Benitez will know just how challenging it’s going to be to continue this momentum in order to get where they want to be.
As the January transfer window edges closer, the need for experience in strength and depth and an all-important firing striker, this has left the opening month of the year with an added importance.
Here are two signings that Charnley must bring to the Sports Direct Arena come January…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
