According to Chronicle Live, Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has been assured that he will have money to spend in the January transfer window.
The Magpies have been strongly linked with a move for Atlanta United playmaker Miguel Almiron in recent weeks, and are said to be in the driving seat.
Chronicle Live have insisted that Benitez will be backed in the January window regardless of whether the club is sold either side of the new year.
It might well be a busy January for the Magpies, and the club’s supporters have been on social media discussing which players could arrive.
Almiron has long been linked with a switch to Newcastle, while the likes of Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico – who represented Argentina at the 2018 World Cup – has also been mentioned.
One fan said that he wanted to sign Tagliafico off the back of the defender’s impressive performances during the summer tournament in Russia.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Newcastle supporters can be seen below:
