Newcastle are targeting an in-form Premier League attacker, according to reports

Newcastle United are reportedly in the market to sign a highly-rated Premier League winger who has the ability to light up St James’ Park. Newcastle have started the season with four wins from their opening eight matches, while they also find themselves top of their group in the Champions League.

Fans have already been treated to a host of memorable moments this season, but Eddie Howe is reportedly still keen to strengthen his team further and recently claimed the 2-2 draw against West Ham was a sign of a “hangover” from Champions League football.

The Magpies added to their wide attacking options by bringing in Harvey Barnes in the summer and the ex-Leicester man arrived as a direct replacement for the outgoing French star Allan Saint-Maximin.

Barnes is currently sidelined for the next few months due to injury and it remains to be seen whether Newcastle will add further depth to those areas.

One potential target according to TeamTalk is Wolves star Pedro Neto. The Portuguese winger has been a standout player for the West Midlands outfit this season and he has scored one goal and provided five assists.

Neto is the joint leading assist maker in the Premier League alongside Kieran Trippier and is a key asset to a team that was expected to struggle at the start of the season after the early resignation of Julen Lopetegui.

The 23-year-old would offer Newcastle depth on both wings as he can be deployed on both the left and right hand side. He has also proven when injury free that he is a player capable of thriving in the top-flight.

However, the Magpies are not the only team interested in the player’s services and the outlet also adds that Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Aston Villa could also bid for the player.

In recent times, Wolves have let go of the likes of Ruben Neves, Matheus Nunes, Nathan Collins and Raul Jimenez due to financial difficulties and they may well look to cash in on other assets who may attract a lucrative fee for the club.
