With only one week to go until the January transfer window slams shut, clubs up and down the country are working hard behind the scenes to bring in some new additions.
Newcastle United have been linked to numerous names over the past few weeks, while a handful of their current squad have been rumoured to be on the possible exit list.
It is no secret that the Magpies have been struggling up front given that Joselu is the team’s top scorer with four goals.
In total, the North-East outfit have netted 22 times in 24 Premier League games and currently sit one point above the relegation zone.
Some fans believed that West Ham United forward Javier Hernandez could solve the team’s woes up front.
The former Manchester United star’s agent has told FOX Sports that his client is open to moving on from the London Stadium.
Newcastle fans have suggested that both parties could benefit if Hernandez, who has scored five league goals this season, becomes part of a swap deal involving midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.
I'd have Hernandez, even if it meant we sent Shelvey the other way…
As long as a replacement was brought in for shelvey!
Plus another striker brought in too, loan or permanent.

Shelvey and hernandez swap deal? Wouldn't be averse to that. He would be am upgrade on what we have currently. We'd still need a midfielder though if shelvey goes. #NUFC

Wanna swap Hernandez for Shelvey??

I am not sure whether this is a popular opinion or not but I would happily swap Jonjo Shelvey for Javier Hernandez.
Both players are in need of a fresh start.
Maybe Rafa Benitez could find a replacement for Shelvey in the same way he found Mikel Merino? #NUFC #WHUFC

#NUFC If West Ham want Shelvey so much, how about making Javier Hernandez part of the deal?

I would swap Shelvey for Hernandez any day. Shelvey has been average this season and we need a quality striker

I'd swap shelvey for Hernandez, and sell Mitro to gain funds for a target man. No point having him if Rafa isn't going to play him
