Newcastle will understand how important signings could prove to be in January, with the Magpies hovering just above the relegation zone.
Rafa Benitez simply needs more from his current players and the owner, should he actually be able to make some progress with this team.
Newcastle’s have been on a rollercoaster journey in recent seasons, one minute they’re winning, the next losing.
That has to stop and for that to happen, they simply need better players in their team.
Money has to be spent wisely in upgrading the team and midfield could be a position they look to change up and Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse could be a great option, with the Englishman struggling for proper game-time at the club.
Ward-Prowse, (who is valued at £13.5 million on Transfermarkt) has become accustomed to playing with no regularity, as he’s only started three games this season.
For a player of his quality, that isn’t good enough and Newcastle could be a good new home for him, as he aims to make more of an impact in the Premier League.
James Ward-Prowse is still only 24-years-old and it amazes some Southampton fans to think that he was so important last season, yet completely forgotten this time around.
He made 35 appearances last season, contributing five goals and four assists during that time. Ward-Prowse is not only a solid midfielder but his dead-ball ability is brilliant, hence the good return of both goals and assists.
Newcastle don’t have a player like James Ward-Prowse, someone who can play anywhere in midfield and still do a job.
So to improve both squad quality and depth, Ward-Prowse is a very necessary signing for the Magpies.
