Newcastle United have endured a hard time in the Premier League this season and are currently stranded in the 14th position in the league table. The Magpies managed to clinch only their fourth win of the season against Huddersfield over the weekend, and the fans would be hoping for a proper turnaround soon.
However, it will not be easy for the Tyneside club to get back to winning ways as they lack aggression in their squad. The Magpies have been able to hit the target only on 14 occasions so far this season with Salomon Rondon doing the bulk of the scoring.
Rafa Benitez would be happy to see some new faces come into the side and help his team start winning matches. But the financial problems at the club have not helped his cause. However, with the ownership of the club on the verge of experiencing a change, there is the possibility of cash flow during the January transfer market, which might help the Spaniard get his hands on his desired targets this season.
According to Mail Online, the Newcastle United manager has his eyes on the midfield sensation Michal Travnik, who has been in good form this season. The Czech Republic midfield ace has scored ten goals so far and has dished out a number of match-winning performances for his current club Jablonec.
There has been an acute dearth of match winners in the Newcastle United ranks this season, and a player of Travnik’s quality could be an excellent addition to the squad. However, it is yet to be assessed whether the Czech Republic midfielder can persist in the Premier League as many players better than him have failed to do so in the past, given the fast and ruthless nature of the English top tier.
Newcastle United are in need of inspiration to turn around their season and it might not be possible for them without the inclusion of new faces. However, they need to be wise in decision making as they might not have the right amount of cash to splash on new players in the January transfer window.
