There’s a huge season ahead for Newcastle United as they make their return to the Premier League.
Rafa Benitez’s Magpies have got a huge job on their hands as they look to ensure they remain in the division at the first attempt and it’s safe to say the Newcastle fans drinking at the bar are confident they can do it.
But with a tough-looking campaign ahead, they need to add players that will certainly be good enough to keep them up this time around.
And one man that has been linked with a move to the club this weekend is Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore, with the Chronicle reporting that discussions over a move are now underway.
The former Barcelona winger impressed, despite Middlesbrough’s relegation last season and a move to St James’ Park would mean he wouldn’t have to relocate that far in the slightest.
It’s thought that Rafa Benitez wants more compeititon down the wing for the upcoming campaign, as he looks to add to the likes of Rolando Aarons, Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu.
Traore more than showed off his pace and skill last time out and he’s expected to leave relegated Middlesbrough at some point over the summer.
Newcastle fans- is Traore good enough to help keep you in the Premier League? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
