Eddie Howe makes decision over current star as Newcastle United handed striker opportunity

All the latest Newcastle United transfer news and rumours as Eddie Howe and his men prepare to face Brighton.

Newcastle United are back in action on Saturday when they take on Brighton away from home.

The Magpies will be looking to make it two from two in their first away clash of the season, though it could be tricky, with sizzling temperatures awaiting them down South.

Eddie Howe’s men defeated Nottingham Forest in their first outing of the campaign, and there is excitement aplenty as we head further into the season.

Newcastle have snapped up a number of new signings this summer, and they are still scanning the market, with a striker the priority.

Here we round up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding St James’ Park.

Allan decision

Newcastle are said to be willing to sell Allan Saint-Maximin this summer.

The 23-year-old has been on Tyneside since 2019, scoring 11 goals in 87 league appearances from out wide.

But while he is liked by fans, it appears as though Howe could be willing to sell Allan, but only on one condition.

It’s claimed by Football Inside that Howe is willing to part ways with the forward if he can land one of his attacking targets.

Newcastle are said to be asking for £40million for the Frenchman if they are to sell.

Icardi opportunity

Newcastle could get their chance to land former target Mauro Icardi.

The Magpies were said to be interested in the PSG star in January, but they never made a move.

According to The Daily Mail, Icardi is now set to leave PSG this summer, with the Ligue 1 club no longer requiring his services after just two years.

PSG signed Icardi for £42million back in 2020, and they are likely to look for a similar fee to sell him.

The striker, who has 11 goals in 44 league games since moving permamently to Paris, is till only 29 years of age,
