Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are again faced with the possibility of relegation this season as their campaign continues to act like a yo-yo.
The Magpies, along with other teams around them, are far from safety this season as the Premier League survival race remains tighter than ever. Newcastle have had a mixture of results over the past weeks but if they want to remain in the Premier League further than this season, scouts should be eagerly analyzing new talent to help them out next campaign.
One man surplus to requirements at Liverpool that Newcastle could target is Danny Ings, who is valued at £7.20 million on Transfermarkt. Ings arrived in the Premier League with a bang, helping his former team Burnley with the input of 11 goals and four assists over four years ago now. Currently, the 25-year-old has faced long battles with the treatment room, limiting the chance to make an impact for Liverpool over his time with the club. However, us punters must remember he still has time on his side and the potential to be a good addition for a team lower down the Premier League table.
Newcastle have found themselves very short of goals this season and with the chance to grab someone determined to prove he still has what it takes in the top flight of English football, this could be a good deal for both parties.
Our landlord is persistent in telling us fans around the bar that Ings is a dangerous striker on his day. The turn of pace and the finishing prowess he possesses has been known to cause problems for teams and given the opportunity to play regular football at St James’ Park, this shouldn’t be an opening to turn down.
