Who Should Benitez Go With At Newcastle: This Liverpool Star Or This Powerful Turkish Forward?

Newcastle United made a mixed start to their campaign this term, having won four of their nine matches so far. Their last match was against the team placed in the bottom of the table, Crystal Palace, which they won by 1-0 to boost their chances of surviving in the top flight in their comeback season.

The Magpies have performed well so far this season under the stewardship of Rafa Benitez, However, the Spaniard has been sceptical about the lack of attacking options at his disposal since the start of the season and is eyeing a number of players to be added to his squad in the near future.

Among a number of players who are on the target list of the Spanish mastermind, the name of Danny Ings is right on the top of the pile. The Englishman is currently striving to make a comeback into the first team after a long injury layoff restricted him to feature for his current club Liverpool.

The Reds striker has, however, not been able to feature on a regular basis for Liverpool and might be willing to make a move out of the club in the future. Benitez might look to latch upon the opportunity and bag the player for his side in the next transfer window. A player of his stature will undoubtedly add to the firepower of the Magpies and help them to put the ball in the back of the opposition net more often.

The only glitch that might come in the way of materialising the move for the Tyneside club is the injury concern surrounding the English striker. It has been detrimental for the player throughout his tenure with the Merseyside club since his move from Burnley in 2015. However, the player is reportedly being tracked by the Magpies, who might put an offer for a loan deal on the table in January for Ings.

One more player, Cenk Tosun, who is making headlines with his brilliant and composed presence in the frontline for the Turkish club Besiktas, is also being monitored by the Magpies to be added to their side in the next transfer window.

Benitez is eyeing a shake-up in his squad, especially with limited strike power at his disposal and the Turkish forward can be the perfect man to lead the line for the Tyneside club if they can land him in January.

Given the current form of both the players, it will be a better deal for the Magpies if they can rope in Tosun in the next transfer window. Ings, albeit a good striker, might not be picked owing to his injury prone nature.
