Newcastle United are gearing up for their clash with strugglers Everton this evening as they look to bounce back from their controversial defeat to Chelsea.

The Magpies were left feeling hard done by after their loss to Thomas Tuchel’s men, feeling a number of decisions went against them.

But they must move on swiftly, facing Everton at Goodison Park, with the opportunity of taking a huge step towards guaranteed safety.

In the meantime, Newcastle continue to be linked with a number of signings, and here we catch up on the latest.

Darwin Nunez problem

Darwin Nunez has been linked with Newcastle for a number of months, and there has even been talk of a failed January move.

Nunez scored a winner for Benfica in the Champions League this week as they stunned Ajax, and that only increases his value.

According to Record via SportWitness, Benfica won’t sell their talented Uruguayan for any less than €80million this summer, which might put the Magpies off.

Jan Oblak links

Newcastle are being linked with a shock move for one of the most talented goalkeepers in the world.

The Magpies could well improve the goalkeeper position this summer, and according to Goal, they could be among the potential suitors for Atletico Madrid superstar Jan Oblak.

Oblak will be in the final year of his contract next season, and that could put Atleti in a vulnerable position this summer.

They will almost certainly try to tie him down to a new long-term deal before that, even with some questionable form this season, but if they don’t, the Magpies may have their shot.
