Newcastle United To Switch Attention Away From Cenk Tosun: 3 Strikers Benitez Would Like To Bring In

After an impressive season last time around, Newcastle United played found themselves back to the league they belong. However, their return to the zenith of English football has not gone according to plan and although they had enjoyed a decent start to their new English top-flight campaign, things are now pretty tough at the club.

After a passive start, they fared well and slowly come back to their regular grind. Things have fallen apart since for the Magpies and they are suffering from the tenacity of the English league. They are now 13th in the league. They have collected just eight of the last 27 possible points.

With the January transfer window coming up, Newcastle will look to seek redemption in the market after failing to register quality, new players in the summer. Rafael Benitez has made no secret of the fact that Newcastle United need new players. However, with Newcastle unable to sell their existing crop of players, Newcastle has had to deal with a stagnant squad and that has frustrated Benitez.

Here is a look at three possible strikers they can bring in to help the club.

Fernando Torres

The Spanish striker currently plays for his childhood club Atletico Madrid. However, Torres is no stranger to a move to England having spent the prime years of his footballing career in Liverpool and Chelsea. He was at the peak of his powers at Liverpool where he became the world’s most fearsome striker and eventually earned a record transfer to Chelsea. His Chelsea career never took off but the striker did win the coveted Champions League trophy at Stamford Bridge. He is now striving for game time at Atletico and a move to a club of a smaller stature might earn the 33-year old some regular time on the pitch.

Stevan Jovetic

A career that began with great promise has gotten lost somewhere. Jovetic continued to flourish in his early days at Fiorentina but his move to Manchester City saw the striker’s demotion to the bench for the first time in his career. It affected the player’s morale and confidence. His City career never really took off and he ended his time there with 11 goals and 6 assists in 44 games. He secured a transfer to French champions Monaco this summer. However, his time at Monaco has not gone smoothly either with Jovetic frustrated at being reduced to a bench role in the club. He has just played only a handful of games for the French outfit so far. A low-key move might just be the late boost Jovetic needs to kickstart his stagnated career once again.

Moussa Dembele

Celtic forward Moussa Dembele bagged 32 goals in his first season in Scotland which helped Celtic swoop the domestic treble. Despite struggling with injuries this term he still has scored plenty of goals for the Hoops. He has scored around 40 goals in just over 60 games for the club already and has become their first team hitman above Griffiths. The 21-year-old Frenchman is tipped to become one of the deadliest finishers in Europe and could prove to be a deadly signing for Newcastle United.
