This Serbian Ace Unhappy With Current Situation At Newcastle United: 3 Replacements If He Leaves

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s gruelling impatience at Newcastle United has been growing day by day and the Serbian international might reconsider his future once the winter transfer window opens in January. Rafa Benitez has ignored the player, as his first and second preferences have always been Joselu and Dwight Gayle throughout this season. In the last season too, when Newcastle had been in brutal form in the Championship, he was rarely used by Benitez.

Now it seems the Spanish gaffer doesn’t rate the player very highly as he has been keeping him apart from the starting lineup. The Magpies are craving for goals but despite their lack of intent in the attacking third, Benitez has been pretty intent on not using the 23-year-old.

Mitrovic recently spoke on his future and cleared his intention that had it not been the support of the Magpies’ fans, he would have left the Tyneside. “I’m patient, but we will see.

“My patience is almost to the end, so we will see. I want to play. I want to be on the pitch. I’m patient, but we will see.”

Newcastle are unlikely to keep the player at St James Park and if he is to leave, three possible players who might come in as his replacement at the club are as follows.

Fernando Torres

An old warhorse and a compatriot of the Newcastle manager, Fernando Torres gelled pretty well with Benitez as the pair worked at Liverpool before. The Spanish forward has been struggling for game time at Atletico Madrid and won’t mind playing some top-notch football in the Premier League

Torres is pretty well versed with the competitive nature of the Premier League and his inclusion will help in a big way, as Benitez would have a lot of options to play with.

Lucas Perez

The 29-year-old didn’t have the desired start for Arsenal since his move from Deportivo La Coruna and he has been eventually loaned to his former club.

The Spaniard has found his form back to some extent as he has found the net four times for his Spanish club. Arsenal are unlikely to keep him so Benitez might fancy a chance of luring Perez to Newcastle.

Divock Origi

The young Belgian is currently in Germany, plying his trade with Wolfsburg. He is a bit inconsistent but has the tendency to find the back of the net and if he is given a good run of games, he could become unstoppable.
