Two players Newcastle must buy and one they should sell this summer
Newcastle United have already made a couple of additions in the summer transfer market, but manager Rafa Benitez will likely want more in the coming days and weeks – especially with the window closing early on August 9 this year.
The signings of Martin Dubravka and Ki Sung-Yueng have hardly broken the budget, and there will certainly be a few positions they need to strengthen in if they are to improve on the impressive 10th-place finish they achieved last term.
Those reinforcements could come in attacking positions in particular given the Tyneside outfit only managed to score 39 goals in their 38 Premier League matches during the 2017/18 campaign, especially with someone like Aleksandar Mitrovic looking likely to be on his way through the St James’ Park exit door sooner rather than later.
