Newcastle United want to sign a striker this January transfer window. Yes, they have Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson. But, Eddie Howe wants to strengthen his forward line and that is why he wants to sign a forward who would bolster his attack. In the last few games, the Magpies are struggling to find the back of the net. With back-to-back defeats to Luton and Nottingham Forest in the Premier League, Newcastle are willing to spend money on a forward player. The same is true with Erik ten Hag and Manchester United.

According to the latest Newcastle transfer news, both clubs identified VFB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy as a target for the January window.
