Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are certainly excited about this summer window and who they could potentially sign ahead of the new Premier League season.
The men from St. James’ Park are back in the top flight and our local Magpies are deep in discussions about who they would like to sign.
For sure, Pepe Reina’s name has come up on a number of occasions but it appears as though that a back-up plan is being put in place if they cannot manage to sign the experienced Spaniard – as per The Northern Echo.
Indeed, their report is suggesting that if a deal cannot be agreed then the men from Tyneside will go for Willy Caballero of Manchester City – something that might not please many fans.
Certainly, Caballero has left a lot to be desired during his time in the Premier League with him not the most dominant figure when it comes to commanding his area.
He would, then, represent a poorer option than former Liverpool ‘keeper Reina, and Newcastle fans will surely be eager to see the Spaniard reunite with Rafa Benitez instead of seeing Caballero come in.
Thoughts on this Newcastle fans? Would you take Caballero as an alternative or someone else if a Reina deal can’t be agreed? Let us know below!
