5 Players Newcastle Could Realistically Sign in January

Samuel Umtiti - Barcelona

Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti has been a peripheral figure at the Nou Camp in recent years having been frozen out of the side by current manager Ronald Koeman.It is very easy to forget that the 27-year-old formed a solid centre-back pairing with Manchester United’s Raphael Varane in the 2018 World Cup which France won.

Newcastle are reportedly looking for a left-footed centre-back of which Umtiti which matches the former Lyon man’s profile. The Barcelona man must be desperate to play first-team football having featured in just 638 minutes of his club’s matches since the start of last season and will likely be available for a cheap fee as he is on big wages at the Nou Camp and unwanted.

The Frenchman would have the opportunity to kick start an exciting project at St James’ Park and provide a high-quality defender to a backline which has leaked 16 goals in seven league matches.

James Tarkowski - Burnley

James Tarkowski is perhaps one of the most underrated players in the Premier League at present and having missed out on the chance to join the likes of West Ham United and Leicester City in recent years, perhaps this could be the Burnley defender’s chance to move on from the Turf Moor club with just over six months left on his current deal.

The Oldham-born defender is 28-years-old and would be coming into the squad at the prime age of his career and potentially at a cut-price fee, like Umtiti, meaning that the Magpies will have plenty of budget to spend on other areas of the squad.

With plenty of experience and an understanding of the English game, it could be crucial for Newcastle to make a solid base at defence with the likes of Tarkowski and Umtit coming in alongside club captain Jamaal Lascelles as first and foremost, the Magpies need to solidify their position in the Premier League and then look to make significant gains up the league table next season.

Jesse Lingard - Manchester United

United midfielder Jesse Lingard is another name that has been heavily linked with a move to St James’ Park. Again, alike Tarkowski, the United midfielder is 28-years-old and his deal also expires at the end of the coming season, potentially allowing the England international to leave for a cheaper fee than the £30m which was being demanded from West Ham United last summer if the Hammers wanted to take the Warrington-born midfielder permanently.

Lingard has played just 45 minutes of Premier League football so far this season, scoring twice, ironically against the Magpies and versus the Hammers, but, despite showing flashes of what he is capable of, he still struggles to get the game time a player of his calibre perhaps deserves due to the qualities of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

Last season, Lingard didn’t play a single Premier League minute for the Old Trafford club and was loaned out to West Ham as mentioned above, where he flourished, scoring nine and assisting five in 16 appearances, showing that he could be a vital player for the Toon Army if they are to acquire him.

Aaron Ramsey - Juventus

Aaron Ramsey is another good footballer who has been somewhat frozen out of the Juventus setup, playing just 106 minutes worth of football since the start of the season, meaning that he has played more for his national team Wales in the last eight months than he has for the Old Lady at club level.

At Euro 2020, Ramsey was arguably Wales’ best player and showed his capabilities on the pitch as a box-to-box central midfielder. The 30-year-old may be a slightly more short term option but in the process, the Magpies will likely have a high turnover of players as Manchester City did between their takeover at the start of the 2008/09 season, before becoming league champions in 2012.

The Welshman would undoubtedly improve the Toon Army’s midfield due to his energy, passing range and goalscoring prowess and if he helps aid their climb up the table and is able to play a big part next season, he would be a successful signing at this present time.

Mauro Icardi - PSG

PSG striker Mauro Icardi is the final player to feature on this list of five players that could potentially move to St James’ Park following the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund’s purchase of the club.

Icardi would provide the Toon Army with more firepower, as the 28-year-old has shown in limited appearances for PSG in the last two seasons, with three goals in 389 minutes this campaign and seven goals and four assists in 1074 minutes last time out. The Argentinian will be desperate to go to a club that will both pay him good wages and utilise his goalscoring talents, which he showed at Inter Milan when he found the back of the net 121 times, as well as creating 30 assists in 219 matches.

Prior to his move to PSG, Icardi was regarded as one of the best strikers in the world and to some, still is despite his lack of game time, having been named as Serie A player of the season in 2018 following a 29 goal league campaign with Inter that saw him claim the Golden Boot.

Following PSG’s summer of major transfer activity, it is likely that Icardi will be made surplus to requirements due to the likes of Lionel Messi arriving at the Parc des Princes has knocked the 28-year-old further down the pecking order.
