Striker with 154 goals has been offered to Newcastle United

Posted by

Following their takeover less than 12 months ago, Newcastle United are now blessed with the financial freedom to make considerable signings. However, one thing manager Eddie Howe wants to avoid, is the club being taken advantage of.

The Magpies have been linked with multiple top players already this summer and while the vast majority of players will not end up being signed, one area of the pitch that Howe is expected to reinforce is the striker’s role.

Currently with Chris Wood and Callum Wilson at his disposal after Dwight Gayles recently sealed a switch to Stoke City, Howe and his recruitment team will know they will need a lot more firepower if they’re to continue in their push for European football.

Interestingly, according to a recent from 90min, the Toon have been offered the chance to Barcelona winger Memphis Depay and Atalanta forward Duvan Zapata.

It remains to be seen if the Geordies will pursue either player, but 90min seems to think Howe isn’t keen on either, due to their suitability to his team’s system.

  1. Yes we need a number9 but maybe it may be more possible in new year when someone comes available
    if we reach a higher position in league and go into Europe and win a trophy this is a good starting point the present footballers would be happy and it would draw other top players to the club
    Bring in Bruno’s mate yes he is a mid field player but can score goals with a better set of players across the middle section a good defence now established we could support Callum till Xmas

    1. Wilson has a huge target on his heel and calf. Defenders study this information to give them an advantage. It is, after all a professional sport. What happens, against Forest, if a defender targets his achilles – which is more likely than not – and is successful in causing another eight month injury lay off?
      Wilson will score goals when he’s fit. It’s a sickening thought though to know he will miss games. They’re protecting him now in the pre-season games.
      We need a striker to cover, if not take over from Wilson. Wood ain’t that man in a million years. We need to buy now, because we need to be ready to hit the road sprinting. Reacting to a Wilson injury is how we got Wood. Let’s be ready this time.
