Rafa Benitez will be trying to bring some younger players into the club this summer – players who can be coached on Tyneside to become possible first-team players at Newcastle.
The Chronicle have identified one of those players today as young Spanish central midfielder Alejandro Viedma who is currently at Sevilla.
We wouldn’t be surprised if Rafa’s contacts in Spain have alerted him to the talented individual.

The teenager has a contract that runs through the end of June so he could be available for a bargain price.
He came through the Barcelona Youth Academy but two years ago signed on at Sevilla.
He played for Sevilla’s reserve side last season in LaLiga2 and made four appearances, so he hasn’t had much playing time at Sevilla.
Newcastle will need to pay some compensation for Viedma, but again he should come at a decent price.
Whether he is signed by Newcastle will depend on how much manager Rafa Benitez rates the player.
