Newcastle United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating the 2018/19 Premier League season, what with their team seeking to build upon their impressive tenth place finish last time round.
Rafa Benitez’s men deserve great credit for securing a top half finish upon their return to the English top-flight last term, having just 12 months earlier lifted the Championship title. Yet it’s pretty clear based on their limitations last season that reinforcements will be needed at St James’ Park this summer, especially if manager Benitez has ambitions of taking the North East giants back to their former glories.
Thus, there are many expectant Magpies fans up and down the country, several of whom are likely to be interested by reports linking their side with a move for Liverpool’s Divock Origi.
The 23-year-old has struggled for regular football since moving to Anfield back in 2014 to the point that he has enjoyed two loan spells at Lille and Wolfsburg since joining the Reds, the latter of which coming last time round to underline his lowly place in Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order.
And it appears that Benitez’s Newcastle are keen on landing the striker this summer, although there are plenty of other Liverpool stars who the Magpies should seek to sign during the close season that would offer them more than the 23-year-old Belgian ace.
As such, they should forget Origi and instead seek to land these TWO Reds stars…
