Newcastle Retain Serious Interest In Top Summer Target – Report



Reports have varied on what Newcastle’s intentions are for the January window. There appears to be fervent intent on adding some youngsters to the ranks, especially at right-back and in the midfield.

Players like Velez Sarsfield midfielder Maximo Perrone and Leeds right-back Cody Drameh have hit the headlines often in recent weeks. Neither would take up a squad place and, while ones for the future, would provide cover for injuries.

If one of the big fish becomes available, Newcastle may pounce. Leicester City’s James Maddison could be one to watch with contract talks seemingly not progressing at the King Power. The England international will have just 18 months left on his contract when January rolls around.

Football Insider is reporting that Watford’s Joao Pedro remains in the picture. Newcastle had a bid of £30m plus add-ons knocked back in the summer before going all in on record signing Alexander Isak. Talks for Pedro were advanced enough to get a patented ‘here we go’ from Fabrizio Romano. One of the rare times the transfer guru missed the mark.

Pedro signed a new deal in September to 2028 which certainly complicates matters. If Newcastle want the versatile attacker, they will have go beyond what they were willing in August. That seems very unlikely to occur in January.

The form of Miguel Almiron has also lessened the need for a wide forward on the right. The Paraguayan has emerged as Newcastle’s leading goal threat and has blossomed under the tutelage of Eddie Howe.

    Check I think England could do it. The days of carlton Palmer’s in midfield are long gone and I’m not sure that Brazil are not overrated. France have lost a talisman striker. I’d say Argentina and Spain could be serious rivals for you.

    Nor will criticise him based on the putrid football his teams churn out.

    When they play a bit more on the front foot i shall be happy to praise him.

    Until then nope, bloke is a charlatan. Gareth Brucegate.

    But thanks for the advice on how to think.

    England should make Wilson captain with ‘the armband’ he gets yellow carded takes it off plays for 20 minutes (probably get a hat trick)
    then sub him for HK.

    Bit harsh on Southgate. You nearly won the last tournament you were in. Therr again if u miss a pen for England you get it in the neck from over expectant, stupid supporters. I think you are top 4 and see what happens after that. I’d feel sorry for Southgate. Massive pressure and he has to talk about politics and lgbtq issues etc.
