Newcastle United made a blistering start to the summer transfer window. They made Matt Targett’s loan move from Aston Villa permanent while also signing Sven Botman from Lille and Nick Pope from Burnley. It had looked like they were close to signing Hugo Ekitike from Stade Reims as well but that saga has dragged on for much longer than anybody could have anticipated and the move is now in major doubt.
At the moment, there is not a lot of noise surrounding Newcastle United despite the fact that the club are still expected to make a few more additions to their squad.
It appears that despite not a lot of rumours and links, Newcastle United are still looking to sign a winger, a striker and a midfielder.
As reported by GIVEMESPORT, Dean Jones said about the Magpies’ transfer plans going forward this summer:
"“I think it’s worth pointing out that Newcastle do still want another midfielder.“So, at the moment when it seems like things are quiet around Newcastle, it’s not.“They’re working on a wide forward, a centre-forward and a midfielder.“There’s three big positions and three big signings still to come.”"
Exciting Newcastle United transfer plans revealed
Newcastle United showed incredible improvement in the second half of the previous season and ended up finishing in 11th in the Premier League table, when it had looked like they were headed for relegation till the halfway mark of the season.
If they are to improve upon that position though, and potentially challenge for the European qualification spots next season, the club will need to improve their squad further.
They have already started that by bringing in Targett, Botman and Pope on permanent deals, and if they are able to add quality options up front, on the wings and in the middle of the park, the fans should be very happy with their signings this summer.
Of course, it remains to be seen who these signings turn out to be as Newcastle United have been linked with a long list of names in recent times. Let’s see how things transpire over the coming weeks and months.
