Newcastle United Keen To Sign This In-Demand Championship Forward: Why Rafa Should Get Him

Newcastle United are ready to start their new campaign, having made a re-entry in the top tier, having won the Championship the last term. The Magpies will be facing one of the biggest clubs in English football in the recent times in the form of Tottenham Hotspur and will be looking to create an upset in the very first match for both the teams in the 2017/18 season.

However, the Toon manager Rafa Benitez is far from satisfied with the way his team has shaped up going into this term and is looking to bring in a few more players into his team to stabilise it for the new season. He is well aware of the fact that he needs a few more attacking options at his disposal and is eyeing the Spanish winger Jota, who is currently playing for the Championship club Brentford.

The 26-year-old attacker has made a name for himself in the Championship with his brilliant attacking mentality and cool and composed finishing. He has been the mainstay for Brentford throughout the last few seasons, since his arrival at the club in 2014. He has made 75 appearances for the club and has been one of the most reliable scorers for them with 23 goals under his belt.

The player has been able to grab the attention of a number of clubs from the top flight as well as Championship, who wants to bring him in for the new season to boost their attacking department for this season. Newcastle United’s man in charge Rafa Benitez has also found grave interest in the attacker and is looking forward to bag him, as he is finding a dearth of attacking options in his team, with only Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dwight Gayle to bank upon for the time being.

The Spanish youngster is known for his darting runs down the right-hand side to make it into the heart of the opposition defence and bamboozle the defenders with his mesmerising footwork and dribbling. He is also capable of unleashing powerful shots to beat the goalkeeper and find the back of the net with ease. He can also score from set piece situations by taking free kicks and can also finish the deal with some of the best finishes from the close range in the Championship.

Newcastle United are all charged up for their comeback season in the Premier League and are looking forward to making it as memorable as possible. The addition of a player like Jota will definitely help their cause.
