According to the Daily Telegraph, the Magpies will be able to spend about €224 million (R3.8 million) in the coming transfer window following the successful Saudi-backed takeover last week.

Newcastle's new owners are believed to be the richest in the Premier League, with many now expecting the club to splash the cash in order for the objectives they have set themselves to be fulfilled over the coming months and years.

This could result in several high-profile footballers being attracted to their project, especially after reports suggested that a new first-team manager is being lined up amid rumours Steve Bruce is close to being relieved of his duties.

Here are the 10 wealthiest owners and ownership groups in the Premier League: 

Lucien Favre, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are among the managers reportedly being considered by Newcastle, but which players could be brought in?

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, valued at €55 million (R951 million) by Transfermarkt, has been mentioned as a potential target given his current situation in Italy, where his contract expires in June 2022.

The Ivory Coast international is said to be playing hardball over a new deal with the Italian giants, and could therefore have his head turned if the newly mega-rich Magpies present him with an offer.

Anthony Martial is one of four United players being strongly linked with Newcastle, while out-of-favour Juventus star Aaron Ramsey is also being looked at, as per WalesOnline.
