An update has emerged on Newcastle United and their plans for the rest of the summer transfer window…
What’s the talk?
Journalist Dean Jones has revealed that the Magpies are still in the market to improve their squad ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
PIF have brought in Nick Pope, Matt Targett, and Sven Botman on permanent deals and are now plotting significant additions to bolster Eddie Howe’s team.
Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I think it’s worth pointing out that Newcastle do still want another midfielder. So, at the moment when it seems like things are quiet around Newcastle, it’s not.
“They’re working on a wide forward, a centre-forward and a midfielder. There’s three big positions and three big signings still to come.”
Supporters will be buzzing
This update will leave the supporters buzzing for multiple reasons.
Firstly, they will be delighted to learn that the club still want to make at least three more ‘big’ signings before the end of the window. It means that the fanbase has plenty to look forward to in the coming weeks as the Magpies’ business is far from over.
This will leave fans speculating over who they could bring in and getting excited by rumours regarding players the club are interested in, as they know that PIF are committed to making more splashes in the market.
Secondly, the supporters will be buzzing with the prospect of another central midfielder coming in the door. The arrival of Bruno Guimaraes in January has shown that the club can identify, and attract, top talent in that position and bringing in another player with similar quality would be exciting.
In the Premier League last season, the Brazil international averaged an exceptional SofaScore rating of 7.25 across 17 outings in the division. He chipped in with five goals and one assist in the middle of the park, whilst also showcasing his defensive awareness with 3.1 tackles and interceptions per game.
The 24-year-old excelled at both ends of the pitch and showed that he has the quality to be a standout performer in the English top flight.
Now, imagine PIF signing Guimaraes 2.0 between now and August. The fans will surely be excited by the prospect of another ‘big’ signing coming in that area of the pitch and will be keeping a keen eye on the club’s business in the weeks to come.
