Newcastle United are looking for reinforcements in the forward area.

So far, the wing play of the Magpies is a thing of concern for Eddie Howe as Newcastle are struggling to create good chances from the wing. Yes, Anthony Gordon has been a revelation for the Magpies. However, he has been struggling in recent times. Miguel Almiron who operates from the right is having a season to forget. Thus, Newcastle are looking for a winger who can operate from the right. After watching Michael Olise bag a brace against Brentford to secure a much-needed win for Crystal Palace, Newcastle fans took to social media to urge Eddie Howe and the board to sign him. So, you will get more Newcastle transfer news on Michael Olise.

Newcastle transfer news: Michael Olise can solve Eddie Howe's problems

If you watch Michael Olise play, you will see that he is versatile and dynamic while operating from the wing. His direct approach is something that most clubs that want to play modern football would want from their wingers. That is why Chelsea also wanted to sign the English winger and Crystal Palace wanted £35million for him. Chelsea were ready to pay that money but Olise decided to reject the Blues and sign a new contract with Palace.

Eddie Howe is facing problems in the attacking front because of the lack of chances for his strikers from the wing. Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almiron are having a very poor season. That is why he would be looking at players like Olise to solve his problems of the wing play. However, the Financial Fair Play restrictions might hinder Newcastle from making a move for the Palace winger. Still, fans can expect more Newcastle transfer news on Michael Olise as the January transfer window opens.
