And, this is creating huge pressure on the manager. Now, Howe wants new signings. However, with the Financial Fair Play restrictions and the loss in the latest financial report, Newcastle just cannot afford to sign a new player. That is why things are getting bad from worse. What is making things worse is the comments made by Newcastle CEO David Eales who in an interview stated that all Newcastle players have a price tag on them and if a team comes with the correct price, the Magpies will consider that offer. This will give a boost to Arsenal who are looking to sign Alexander Isak and this Newcastle transfer news is massive.
