Not too much about the transfer window in the last couple of days but there was a report in ESPN that Newcastle are interested in striker Richmond Boakye of Red Star Belgrade in Serbia.
At the very least we need to bring in two strikers in January, but maybe we also need some defenders – since the defense is not looking as robust as it was at the beginning of the season.
Boakye is in his second season at Red Star and last season he scored 16 goals in 20 appearances, and he only joined the club in January.
This term he has 22 goals in 27 total appearances.

So he already has a massive 38 goals and 4 assists in 47 appearances for Red Star this year.
The 24-year-old Ghanaian International (12 caps – 6 goals) can score the goals.
Boakye is attracting attention from clubs across Europe with his excellent goalscoring form and the other Premier League side interested are reported to be West Brom.
Newcastle must bring in one or two strikers in January although Rafa Benitez is not sure what transfer funds he will get from Mike Ashley next month.
From his record alone, it would seem that Richmond Boakye would be an excellent signing for us.
