Sebastien Haller is Newcastle United's number one transfer target

Sebastien Haller is Newcastle United's number one transfer target Newcastle United have identified Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastien Haller their number one target when the January transfer window opens, according to a report from Scott Wilson of The Northern Echo. Rafael Benitez wants to bring in a new centre-forward and an attacking midfielder in January in an attempt to resolve the issue of his side looking for from potent in front of goal. The Magpies have yet to win a league game all season and have scored just six goals in 10 Premier League matches so far, so it’s clear that something needs to be done if they are to remain in the division. Benitez, according to Wilson, has met with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley to discuss transfers and whilst he was not given a specific budget, the Spaniard is confident that he will get some backing from the club in the winter. Haller only joined Frankfurt in 2017 but Newcastle have been scouting him for a while and Benitez will be confident of completing a deal, if Ashley gives him the money to do so.

Newcastle are preparing to allow two players to leave in January, according to reports.

Full-back Achraf Lazaar is set to leave on a permanent deal, after failing to establish himself in the first-team since arriving from Palermo in 2016.

The Moroccan joined the Magpies on a five-year deal, but was sent out on loan to Benevento in 2017. Serie A provided no relief for the left-back, as Lazaar made just nine appearances in his time back in Italy.

Lazaar will likely leave Newcastle having made just nine senior appearances, in what has been an entirely forgettable stay.

On a lighter note, Cal Roberts is to get a chance away from St James’ on loan. An impressive run of form for the U23s has meant Rafael Benitez is ready to allow the South Shields-native to leave temporarily.

Newcastle scout Bordeaux duo as they ponder January swoop

Newcastle scout Bordeaux duo as they ponder January swoop Newcastle have reportedly had scouts keeping a close eye on Bordeaux duo Francois Kamano and Samuel Kalu. According to a report from Italy, who cite claims from the Chronicle, the pair are on the Premier League side’s radar with attention beginning to turn to the January transfer window. The report claims that the Magpies had scouts present during Sunday’s game against Nice. The game finished 1-0 to Nice, but both players started for Bordeaux. Kamano was heavily linked with a move away from the French side during the summer but decided to stay put having joined in 2016. Rafa Benitez will be keen to add goals to his squad during the new year, with the Magpies among the lowest scorers in the Premier League. The Newcastle boss will be hoping for an equally successful January window this time around, with the new year period a key part in their attempts to avoid relegation last season.

Ciaran Clark and Rob Elliot could leave Newcastle in January.
Newcastle could allow both Ciaran Clark and Rob Elliot to leave in January, according to the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas. Defender Clark could be sold in January if Florian Lejeune returns from injury in time, whilst Elliot could be loaned out in order to get regular first-team football. Here’s what Douglas had to say when asked about January outgoings. “If Florian Lejeune returns in time, Newcastle would listen to offers for Ciaran Clark while either Rob Elliot or Freddie Woodman may also make a loan move with Newcastle over-loaded with goalkeepers and centre-backs.” Lejeune is nearing full fitness and when he’s back ready to play, he’s likely to go leapfrog Clark in the pecking order of the club’s defenders, so it makes sense for him to be sold in order to create more revenue for Rafa Benitez to spend. Meanwhile, with Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow in the squad, Newcastle have the cover to allow a goalkeeper to leave on loan in order to get regular football.
