Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who Rafa Benitez is going to sign in the summer window as they look to make a fist of being in the Premier League.
The Magpies are back in the top flight after their one year hiatus and many are expecting Rafa Benitez to throw some serious money around to make sure they stay put now.
It could, then, be an exciting window for fans of the club and the rumours are certainly suggesting that might be the case at the moment.
Indeed, Jeinny Lizarazo has suggested the Magpies want Olivier Giroud from Arsenal – a move that would seriously cause some surprise:
Newcastle are trying to sign Giroud. £22M, £16M first year then £4M a year the next two years.
If Arsenal say yes..have to go get Lacazette

Giroud, then, might be on his way as the Magpies look to make a statement of intent this summer.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
