Seven players Newcastle United could sign before transfer deadline - plus 6 possible exits
As we enter the final month of the summer transfer window, Newcastle United are stepping up their search to bolster the attacking areas.
The Magpies kick-off the new Premier League campaign on Saturday when they welcome newly-promoted Nottingham Forest to St James’ Park.
United finished 11th in the league table last season after an incredible run of results in 2022, form bettered only by Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Naturally, the aim this term is to improve on that finish.
To try and do that, Eddie Howe has strengthened his backline with the arrivals of goalkeeper Nick Pope, central defender Sven Botman and left-back Matt Targett.
But when it has come to recruiting attacking players, the Magpies have been left frustrated but won’t panic with still plenty of time left in the summer window.
And here, NewcastleWorld takes a look at some of the transfers - both ins and outs - Newcastle could complete before the deadline on September 1.
