Eddie Howe was very keen to strengthen his ranks, and he still will be with just over three weeks remaining in the summer window.

Newcastle want another striker, and they could also add another creative player before the window slams shut.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding St James’ Park.

More incomings expected

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believes Newcastle could still add ‘two or thre’ signings this summer.

The Magpies will still want to get stronger as they look to take a jump into the top half of the table.

And Romano believes they could act on that with further new signings, telling GiveMeSport: “I can see Newcastle moving on two or three targets.

“It depends also in this case on the outgoings, but they will be in for a striker and a creative midfielder.”

Newcastle are, of course, armed with new found wealth this summer, but they still have to balance the books due to Financial Fair Play rules.

Pedrosa links

While attacking players are at the top of the wishlist, Newcastle are also being linked with a move for a La Liga left-back.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Magpies are eyeing a move for Espanyol defender Adria Pedrosa.

The report claims the Catalan club are trying to tie Pedrosa down to a new deal, but they face competition amid interest from Newcastle and Brighton.

Pedrosa would likely cost between £6million and £7million, but Newcastle are not likely to make a move until they address their attack.
