8 New Players Linked With Newcastle After Takeover

With the January transfer window edging closer, here are eight new players who have appeared on newly-rich Newcastle United's shortlist following the club's billionaire-backed takeover.

Click through the gallery above to see eight new players on Newcastle's radar, according to several reports.

Plenty of high-profile players have been linked with the Magpies since it was confirmed that the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund had successfully taken over the English club.

While stars such as Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho have been mentioned as potential targets, some new names have appeared on their radar, including German teenage sensation Florian Wirtz.

The 18-year-old Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is among the most promising young footballers in the world and could come at a cost of more than €60 million (R1 billion), although Newcastle would likely be competing with many other clubs for his signature.

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has also emerged as a potential target considering his current situation at the Red Devils. The Dutchman, 24, has played just 141 minutes this season across all competitions for United.

According to Football Insider, Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse is being eyed by the Toon, who, it is said, could explore the possibility of landing a deal for the 26-year-old England international.

Man Utd's Next Manager Identified?

Steve Bruce was recently sacked as manager of Newcastle following a difficult start to the season, in which the Magpies are yet to win a game. Ex-Roma boss Paulo Fonseca is believed to be the favourite to succeed him.
