Newcastle Already Have Four New Goalscorers In The Side

July 25th, 2015 · 64 Comments

With Aleksandar Mitrovic signing for us this past week, and with Newcastle now having three midfielders who can also score goals – Gini Wijnaldum, Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons – maybe we don’t need another striker brought in this summer?
