Throughout the season it has been evident that Newcastle United are lacking something in the attacking department.
Rafael Benitez’s side headed back into the Premier League with an impressive scoring record from the second tier.
The North-East outfit topped the Championship table with 85 goals in the 2016-17 campaign, but since returning to the top flight, it has been a different story.
The Magpies have managed just 22 in 24 outings, with Joselu top-scoring on four, while Dwight Gayle has nabbed just three.
Micky Quinn, who spent three years of his playing career at St James’ Park, believes that it is imperative that the club sign a new forward before the transfer window shuts on Wednesday.
The football pundit made the suggestion on Twitter after watching his former club lose 3-0 to Chelsea in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
3-0 to Chelski
FA Cup over again for another year for @NUFC
All focus now is on Burnley next week and bringing in a center forward before deadline day

Newcastle have been linked to numerous strikers in the last few weeks, with the Chronicle reporting that the club are interested in bringing in Feyenoord hitman Nicolai Jorgensen.
