Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their side brings in this summer as they aim for a successful return to the Premier League.
The men from St. James’ Park are back in the big-time for the new campaign and though the prime aim is survival their fans naturally want to see them get further up the table.
Indeed, they are certainly the best placed side out of all the teams to have been promoted from last year to finish high up in the league and so Rafa Benitez needs to sign some top players to help ensure that happens.
Who comes in, then, remains to be seen but The Northern Echo reckons that Benitez is closely monitoring Pepe Reina’s situation at Napoli in the hope that he can bring him in.
The Spanish goalkeeper is stalling over signing a new deal with the Serie A side and so if the Magpies can see a chance for them to steal in and snap him up, they surely will.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
