Newcastle have so far brought in Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea and Henri Saivet from Bordeaux and they look like two good signings for us.
But we still need more players brought in and a winger, striker and left back could make this transfer window a great one for the club.
Raphael Guerreiro – Lorient left-back
Newcastle´s defense has been a weakness for a long time and especially in central defense but with Colo and Mbemba starting to strike up a decent partnership it could be that Newcastle wait until the summer to sign a top center-back.
But we could do with bringing in a new left back this month and we have been linked for some time with 22 year-old Portuguese left back Raphael Guerreiro who plays for Lorient and has 3 full caps for Portugal.
He signed for Lorient back in 2013 from Caen and made his Ligue 1 debut in August of that year in the 1-0 away loss at Lille.
Since that time he has played 85 times for Lorient with 8 goals and is now an accomplished left back who could do well in England – and could be bought for around £8M.
Newcastle are said to be in communication with Spurs and Andros Townsend about a possible move this month.
If reports are to be believed Steve McClaren is keen to get the England intentional on Tyneside either permanently or on loan for the rest of the season.
Andros would be a good signing for us because once he´s fully fit – he hasn´t played for the Spurs first team since October – he can start producing for Newcastle on one of the wings.
Townsend can both score goals and make goals so he would be a good signing for Newcastle
We would love to see Newcastle get Loic Remy in on loan through the end of the season even if he wont sign for us full time.
Loic would be able to produce for Newcastle almost immediately, but it may be difficult for Newcastle to persuade the French striker to come to the north-east again.
If the London press are to be believed he would prefer to remain in London, with Tottenham and Crystal Palace both reported interested in taking the player from Chelsea this month.
Loic would be a terrific second half of the season signing for Newcastle.
So those are three players – Raphael Guerreiro, Andros Townsend and Loic Remy – who could do very well for Newcastle if brought in this month.
Two other things – Charlie Austin would be a great buy right now but he does have a hamstring injury which may complicate things this month.
So maybe we wait bit get him to sign a pre-contract agreement now – and then make the deal final when he is a free agent in the summer.
And if Newcastle are going to negotiate with Lorient for Guerreiro, why not try to get Lamine Kone, who is the impressive center-back who Sunderland failed to sign recently.
He´s available for just £5M and the Ivory Coast Intentional would be a great buy for us either now or in the summer.
