Newcastle reportedly eyeing another “big name” signing

A big Newcastle United transfer update has emerged as the club look to bolster their squad on deadline day…

What’s the talk?

Journalist Keith Downie has provided a tantalising claim on a mysterious target for the Magpies, with a deal for a player potentially being influenced by the move for Hugo Ekitike.

Speaking live on Sky Sports News (14:20), the reporter said:

“The decision that Ekitike has not yet made has ramifications as to another big name player and a potential arrival. We can tell you that this afternoon Newcastle are pushing to bring Jesse Lingard in from Manchester United. We know that they have been in talks with Manchester United.

“It had reached an impasse but with Ekitike hanging in the balance, Newcastle United are beginning to look elsewhere. As we understand, Newcastle very keen to bring him in and are pushing hard to do so this transfer deadline day.”

Should Newcastle sign Lingard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Elated

The Toon Army will surely be elated with this news for several reasons.

Firstly, the idea of another ‘big name player’ being targeted will excite the supporters. Not only does it suggest that a high-profile name could be on their way to St. James’ Park on deadline day and that could leave fans delighted as it is, but it also provides an air of mystery around it that could leave them on the edge of their seats.

 

They will be buzzing with the prospect of another major addition to the squad, as Eddie Howe’s team is in dire need of reinforcements. The Magpies are 18th in the Premier League table and have only won two matches all season, which suggests that the current crop of players are not good enough to avoid the drop. That is why bringing in a ‘big name’ player could bolster their chances of survival.

The potential arrival of Jesse Lingard would also leave fans elated as he is a proven Premier League player who could come in and make an impact.

Who scored more goals for Newcastle? An easy one to start...

Last season, he produced nine goals and four assists in the top-flight on loan to West Ham, which shows that he has the quality to be a match-winner with his clinical edge in the final third.

He could, therefore, be a player who is able to improve Howe’s XI and help the team to pick up more wins and points to help them avoid relegation down to the second tier, which is another reason why fans will be buzzing with this news.
