Newcastle United will be making a bold move in the upcoming transfer market for West Brom striker Saido Berahino.
Certainly we need another striker brought in because we have too much trouble scoring goals – and Newcastle have only 16 goals in our 15 league games.
Only Aston Villa, Swansea and West Brom have scored fewer goals.
Maybe the great 2-0 win against Liverpool will help us get some good players in during the January transfer window and we need to do that to retain our Premier League status.
Saido Berahino – West Brom striker
Not only that but those running the club should be going all out to fortify the squad so we can even have a decent season – although our start has been one of our worst ever.
Berahino was on the bench again over the weekend and it seems he will be available for sale in January, but Spurs have to be the top favorites to sign him.
Newcastle were reported to be interested in him over the summer and we may have a chance to sign him next month because West Brom don’t want to sell him to the north London club.
There was a lot of hassle between Spurs and West Brom over the summer and that could even open up the way for Newcastle.
Newcastle fans are getting a little fed up with the pathetic way the club is being run and some big signings in January are what’s needed to get the fans back on the side of the club.
Aleksandar Mitrovic was signed in the summer, but he´s taking some time to settle in – and we have to remember he’s still only 21.
Saido already has ample experience in the Premier League with 80 games played and he´s scored 22 PL goals and his speed could give Newcastle a new dimension up front.
Overall Saido has played a total of 124 games including loan spells at Northampton, Brentford and
Peterborough and scored 44 goals.
At 22 he’s four years younger than 26 year-old Charlie Austin and some in the club could be thinking he’s a better buy for us than Charlie.
The youngster would be a popular signing if we can get him in – but that still has to be a big if.
