Newcastle United now face a real battle to preserve their Premier League status.

Today, fans were left reeling as an update arrived on Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron.

Both players left the action early against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, and the club say they will be out of action until April.

They join Callum Wilson in the treatment room, and Steve Bruce has a serious job on now, with Fulham improving under Scott Parker.

There have been problems all over the park this season and an overhaul will be needed in the summer.

Strikers Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle are both out of contract, and Joelinton has consistently shown he just isn’t good enough.

Wilson cannot do it all on his own, and the Magpies will surely need to invest in another striker.

One man who may be worth looking at is Tammy Abraham.

 

There are doubts about how much Thomas Tuchel values the England international, and rumours about a possible move for Erling Haaland have been rife.

The Telegraph say Premier League clubs are thinking about the 23-year-old, and maybe Newcastle ought to get involved.

Abraham would be a great signing

Abraham has now proven he can score goals in the Premier League, after exciting spells with Bristol City and Aston Villa in the Championship.

He has 26 in the competition in 87 appearances, which is not too bad given he is still relatively young and currently in competition with the likes of Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud.

Abraham holds the ball up well and is a strong aerial threat. He would be a big upgrade on Carroll but of course, Newcastle will undoubtedly have to stave off relegation to stand any chance over a potential transfer.

There’s a good transfer relationship between the two clubs, with Newcastle having signed the likes of Geremi, Damien Duff, Scott Parker, Celestine Babyaro from the Blues in the past, as well as loaning winger Kenedy. Maybe there would be a chance of a deal.
