3 Forwards Newcastle United Could Consider Signing In January Including This Liverpool Striker

Newcastle United have had a rollercoaster of a season so far after making a nightmare start to their Premier League campaign only to recover over the past few weeks under the tutelage of Rafael Benitez. The Magpies currently find themselves in the 13th place of the league table following three successive victories in the English top-flight. 

The biggest problem that Benitez had to address in recent weeks has been on the attacking front. The Tyneside giants lack in firepower up top which is mainly due to the lack of investment in recent transfer windows. The likes of Salomón Rondón, Ayoze Perez, Yoshinori Muto and Joselu have all failed to score goals consistently at St. James’ Park this season.

The Toon Army would now hope that the club’s owner Mike Ashley would loosen his purse strings so that Benitez can bring in some reinforcements during the winter transfer period.

Here are three forwards for the Magpies to consider in January.

Dominic Solanke

The Liverpool youngster has not featured for Jurgen Klopp’s senior team at all this season so the Merseyside club might be open to sending him out on loan in January so that he can continue with his development. The Magpies should consider landing him on a temporary basis as he has the potential to be a big hit at Tyneside if given regular first-team opportunities under Benitez.

Krzysztof Piatek

The Polish forward has started this campaign on fire after scoring 14 goals in 14 matches for Genoa this season. He would be a fantastic addition to the Magpies squad but only if Benitez can find a way to fund a move for him.

Divock Origi

Another Liverpool forward who has hardly found any game time at Anfield this season. The Belgian prospect has not been able to break into Klopp’s first-team and his decision to stay with the club this season has come back to haunt him. Newcastle United should weigh up an offer for him as the Belgian will be a significant upgrade over what Benitez currently has at his disposal at Tyneside.
