The new Newcastle owners are inevitably going to want to show their financial power by making a statement signing, but there could be some January bargains available.
With several big names out of contract in June 2022, clubs could be forced to accept cut-prices for their stars to ensure they don’t leave on a free transfer.
The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala are all on that list, but the players we have included as potential options for Newcastle are a combination of realistic and ambitious, plus names we haven’t heard linked with Newcastle since the takeover.
So here we are….
The Croatian winger would be a quality addition and given Inter Milan’s financial struggles which saw them cash in on Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi in the summer, the Italian giants could sell Perisic to recoup further funds.
The 32-year-old was a major target for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho and with 31 goals from 109 international caps, Newcastle would be getting a player who recently helped Bayern Munich win the Champions League and Inter win Serie A, under that man Antonio Conte last year.
Perisic has the talent and work rate to match. He could be a big hit at St James’ Park.
After starting the first three Premier Leagues game this season, the attacking midfielder hasn’t started a game under Daniel Farke since.
It could well be that with his future unresolved. Farke doesn’t want the additional distraction of the 23-year-old’s future clouding the team’s struggles in the top-flight any further.
In 33 Championship games last season, Cantwell scored six goals and made seven assists.
In his debut campaign in the Premier League, the England under-21 international scored six goals.
If Cantwell is proving to be a distraction and his future remains unresolved come the new year, the Canaries could be open to selling one of their key players.
Newcastle would be getting a player who is tried and trusted in the Premier League and would add goals and creativity to the team.
After spells with Celtic, Galatasary and Sunderland, the former Manchester City defender has impressed with French giants Lyon.
Establishing himself as a regular starter for his club has seen Denayer become a key part of Roberto Martinez’s Belgium side.
Denayer could feel he has unfinished business in the Premier League and at the age of 26 Newcastle would be getting a player who is entering their prime.
Denayer is quick, strong and comfortable on the ball. He’s the type of under the radar signing that could help glue a team full of potential stars together.
The Marseille man, who can play in defence and midfield, has been offered a new contract to stay with the Europa League club according to French outlet L’Equipe.
But nothing has been signed as of yet and after apparently not being convinced of a summer move to the Magpies, perhaps Kamara will now be chomping at the bit for a Newcastle bid to come his way.
