Newcastle United have been looking to make the next season a good one in terms of results, this one being their comeback season in the Premier League after spending one year in the Championship and eventually winning it to head back into the top flight.

The Magpies have one of the most experienced managers in the history of the Premier League in the form of Rafa Benitez, who made a great impression with Liverpool during his regime at Anfield before moving to the Italian Serie A. The Spaniard is well aware of the fierce competitiveness of one of the most intriguing leagues in Europe and is looking forward to put together a team that can take on the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and defending champions Chelsea.

So far, Newcastle United have been able to bring in five players in the current summer transfer market in an attempt to revamp their squad for the next term, in the form of Florian Lejeune, Javi Manquillo, Jacob Murphy, Stefan O’Connor and Josef Yarney. However, Benitez is looking further to invest into a few more players for the next season and the name on the top of his priority list is that of the Greek midfielder Andreas Samaris.

The 28-year-old enforcer is considered to be one of the best in the whole of Europe and has been instrumental in the success of his current club Benfica, who were crowned the Champions in the Portuguese Primera Liga in the last term. The player has attracted interest from a number of clubs from the whole of Europe with Newcastle looking to make an ambitious bid to bag the player in the next term.

Samaris is known for his cool and composed display of skills on the pitch, helping his team to keep possession of the ball and keep his opponents at bay with his swift footwork.

He is also known for his strong leadership skills on the field, marshalling the midfield and also threading pinpoint passes in the attacking third so as to feed his teammates with goal scoring opportunities. He himself also can pack a punch when it comes to unleashing lethal shots on goal in order to score for his team and keep them in the advantage.

The 28-year-old midfielder has made 110 appearances for his club so far and has a contract that sees him staying with them till 2019. However, Newcastle will be hoping that they can land the player, which will be a major boost for them.
