Newcastle will give Rafa Benitez as much money as he thinks he needs to bring in new players to strengthen the Newcastle squad for the rest of this season and for next season too.
Newcastle have plenty of money in the coffers after making a huge profit of £31M in the summer – so much for buying our way back to the Premier League.
Rafa has already said he has identified the positions he wants to strengthen for the run-in to the Championship season.
Rafa Benitez wants to strengthen Newcastle squad
And while he doesn’t give much away he has hinted that maybe he wants another winger in the January transfer window.
This is what he said yesterday in the local press:
“We have one or two problems.”
“Rolando Aarons is a long-term problem.” “We need to find a player to balance the team.”
“Maybe we can manage, maybe we can bring someone in.”
There is speculation on Tyneside that he could make winger Christian Atsu’s loan move from Chelsea into a permanent signing next month – but that doesn’t bring in a new player.
Rolando Aarons is out until at least the end of the season and maybe a lot longer than that with the serious ACL injury he picked up in training.
So it looks like a winger could come in and we were linked only yesterday with being interested in 21 year-old Angers winger Nicolas Pepe, who has one cap for the Ivory Coast.
Newcastle have also been heavily linked with Daryl Horgan of Dundalk and the club have watched him a lot this season.
Daryl has said he would be delighted to join a massive club like Newcastle.
