Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their side manages to sign in the summer window with them expecting plenty of good deals.
The Magpies have returned to the Premier League for next season after their year away in the Championship and the plan has to be to try and make sure they stay there.
For sure, then, they need to sign players that are going to help them achieve that aim and we think, with that in mind, that a move for Fernando Llorente of Swansea would be ideal.
Indeed, the Magpies are really lacking a powerful forward at the moment and with only Dwight Gayle really a solid source of goals they need a new forward undoubtedly.
And, after a decent season at Swansea, Llorente has shown he has what it takes to fire a team to safety in the Premier League.
Of course, Newcastle fans would like to think that their team will be well above the relegation zone but there can not be any resting on laurels in that regard particularly after last time’s relegation.
The Magpies, then, need to get in players that are well equipped for the battle at the bottom and can then help them with moving up the league and, looking at Llorente’s CV, he’s got the tools for the sharp end too.
The Spaniard, then, would be the ideal signing to sum up Newcastle’s plans for progression and so they should do all they can to bring him in ASAP.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
