The Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are becoming eager for Benitez to cut off any dead weight as they seek the addition of new players.
After the impressive start that The Toon Army have made they’re seeking to build from this as we all know how quickly things can change in the Premier League.
In what is a very thin squad, it’s quite visible to see the men that are in his thoughts going forward as he begins to sideline out any individuals that don’t fit the pipeline he’s running on Tyneside. With the January transfer window on the horizon, it’s only a matter of time before some players are saying their goodbyes to the Premier League.
Benitez is a very ambitious man, so for someone who isn’t being given the sufficient funds he’s required, he is finding himself dipping into the sales market as he looks to offload an unwanted weight.
Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Serbian forward who after firing in previous seasons has lost his way for the Tyneside club this season as he struggles with a measly 1 goal for the club in what was his one and only appearance.
This is clearly a man who Benitez doesn’t see in his plans but has already attracted attention from Premier League strugglers Brighton as they look to prepare a bid to bring the Serbian to the Amex.
So, with one man possibly out the door, a back up striker is something that Benitez will definitely look in to as he goes in search of curing his forwards goal drought.
In a squad that has players living in the fringes, there’s no question that there will be people hitting the exit door.
So that’s why we take a look at the players who will possibly be taking the first train out of Newcastle…
