Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for their side to start signing players when the summer window opens up for business.
The Magpies are more than capable of attracting some top names and with Rafael Benitez in charge, that factor has surely only been boosted.
Now, then, the Tynesiders need to identify who they want to bring in and, according to ghanasoccernet, Afriyie Acquah could be one of those to come in.
The Ghanaian has impressed in Serie A this season for Torino and it is thought that Juventus have also got an interest in the player meaning it could be quite the battle for his signature.
Certainly, the current Italian champions are an attractive proposition for most players you would have thought and so Rafa Benitez will need to pull out all the stops to win the race.
If he can, though, it will surely provide proof that the Magpies are more than capable of putting together a good season when it begins.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
