Newcastle targets for January Transfer Window 2022: Magpies to snap up Arsenal captain?

Just hours into the January transfer window and the Magpies, newly-flushed with cash after their takeover in October, have been revealed to be targeting the Arsenal forward who has an uncertain future at the Emirates after a disciplinary issue, which has seen him lose the captaincy and be sidelined by manager Mikel Arteta.

Newcastle, who are set to be without Callum Wilson for a long period of time through injury, are mulling over a move for the Gabonese forward according to latest reports from The Mirror. The Magpies are reportedly considering a loan deal with a view to buy the player for £20million if it proves successful. It could indeed turn out to be a wise decision for both parties involved as the striker could find a way out of the Arsenal stands while the Magpies would get a strong, consistent goalscorer, someone they have lacked for awhile now.

Darwin Núñez to Tyneside? Newcastle targets for January Transfer Window 2022

According to Italian website Tuttomercato, Newcastle United are looking into a potential £50 million move for Benfica star Darwin Núñez this month as another striking alternative.

The young Portuguese striker’s superb form this campaign has seen the likes of Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and a few others keep an eye out but Newcastle are looking to win the race for the forward’s signature this January. The Magpies are looking to make a £50 million offer despite the fact that the 22-year-old’s release clause stands at £100 million, as the club are convinced that they can get Benfica to sell him for a reduced fee although the forward does have just over three years left on his current contract. It remains to be seen if the Portuguese club are up for such negotiations.

Defensive reinforcements incoming?

Veteran English right-back Kieran Trippier, who won a league title with Atletico Madrid last season and was named in the La Liga team of the year has been targeted by Eddie Howe for long as Newcastle’s first January signing. According to Sky Sports, a move is close as the defender appeared to wave goodbye to Atletico fans after Sunday’s game. If Newcastle are able to bring him to St James’ Park, Trippier will add leadership, experience and quality to the backline. Trippier can be a part of Newcastle targets for January Transfer Window 2022.

Another defender being linked with a move to Tyneside is Lille center-half Sven Botman, for whom Newcastle have reportedly had their approach slapped down by the French side A £30million swoop for Botman would have been a major coup for the Magpies, given that he was virtually ever-present as Lille pipped PSG to the Ligue 1 title last season. At just 21 years old, the Netherlands international could also have plenty of years ahead of him at the top level and Newcastle are expected to make a second approach soon.

Thus, to sum up Newcastle’s latest transfer news, manager Eddie Howe, with the backing of the Magpies’ wealthy new owners, is likely to have a busy month as his cash-backed team attempt to steer clear of Premier League relegation.
