An insight into Newcastle United’s January transfer plans has been provided.

Newcastle must spend in January

Eddie Howe was named as Newcastle’s new head coach last month.

Howe joined whilst facing up to the mammoth task of keeping the North East outfit in the top-flight.

At present, though, that seems pretty unlikely after 18 games of the campaign. Newcastle are second bottom of the Premier League table, and have so far picked up just one win.

They also have the worst defensive record in the division, having conceded a hefty 41 goals in 18 games.

In turn, given the size of the task facing Howe, it seems imperative that Newcastle spend well in the upcoming January transfer window.

And the club’s new boss is seemingly being backed to do so, with it reported that the former Bournemouth man could have £50m to spend in the winter market, to add to a number of loan swoops.

In turn, now, as we edge closer to January, an insight into exactly who Newcastle are targeting has been provided.

Newcastle’s January plans

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, the Magpies are planning to sign one or two centre-backs in January, with Lille defender Sven Botman top of the list.

It is added that the Geordie club are waiting for an answer from Lille about the final price-tag of the Dutchman.

Romano also claims that Newcastle are looking for a new right-back, though no specific name is mentioned.

Given that Eddie Howe’s men boast, statistically, the worst defence in the Premier League right now, it would make sense for them to be targeting several players in this area. But will the arrivals come too late to save their season?
