Now majority-owned by cash-rich Saudi Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, the Magpies are expected to inject vast sums of cash into their playing squad in an attempt to restore the club back to its former glory.

Although the club has been linked with several high-profile players, including Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, the latest big-name understood to be a target for the Geordies, is Napoli and Italy attacker Lorenzo Insigne.
