Newcastle United invited to sign Manchester United and Arsenal stars on loan as January transfer budget “revealed”
The wealth of new owners continues to see the Magpies linked to multiple players before January.
Newcastle have a £ 50million transfer budget in January
Newcastle have a planned January transfer budget of £ 50million, although they are allowed to spend £ 190million under Financial Fair Play rules.
This is according to the Daily Telegraph, which understands that the club’s majority shareholder, the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund, wants to build gradually.
Since the takeover, United have been linked with a number of big named transfers.
One player reportedly on the radar is Burnley defenseman James Tarkowski, who is in his final year of control.
Magpies urged to target large-scale loans
Former Liverpool and Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy has urged Newcastle to target high-profile loans in January.
That’s because Murphy believes the Magpies will struggle to draw players to permanent deals in a relegation battle.
United sit 19th in the Premier League table without a win in their opening seven games.
“They have the money to pay high salaries, so why not aim big in the loan market,” Murphy told the Daily Mail.
“Try to bring in Edinson Cavani from Manchester United because he won’t be playing at Old Trafford, or Alexandre Lacazette who is in the last year of his Arsenal contract. Dare Timo Werner at Chelsea.
“This type of player is not going to take the risk of joining definitively in the event of relegation.”
Fiorentina star linked to Toon and Spurs
Newcastle and Tottenham are ready to fight for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, The Sun reports.
The Serbian star, 21, is attracting interest from several European clubs who have scored six goals in eight appearances this season.
Serie A are resigned to losing Vlahovic, despite having slapped a price of £ 77million on him on the head.
Vlahovic, whose contract expires in 2023, has previously been linked with Arsenal, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
