Newcastle United need to strengthen their attack this winter.
The latest reports in England suggest that Newcastle are preparing mega offer for Tyrese Campbell.
The England international joined Stoke City from Manchester City on a free transfer in 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
The striker has featured in 12 matches this term, netting 3 goals in all competitions.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Tyrese Campbell has represented England at Under-17 and Under-20 level, winning 5 caps and scoring 2 goals.
He has been in impressive form for Stoke City this season and it looks like he caught the eye of many Premier League clubs including Newcastle United.
The Magpies have earmarked Stoke City striker as their target, with Eddie Howe being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player.
Newcastle will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The former Manchester City man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
According to the report, “Newcastle want to make Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell their first signing of the Saudi era for £20m. Campbell, who turns 22 later this month, has scored twice in eight Championship appearances this season. A former Manchester City youth player, he is now attracting interest from the top flight. According to The Sun, Eddie Howe wants to take Campbell to Tyneside in January. If they get the deal done early enough, he could be the first signing the club make since their Saudi-backed takeover. Howe has reportedly been a fan of Campbell ever since he was in charge of Bournemouth. He was never able to take him to the South Coast but now finds himself at a club capable of affording practically anyone. Newcastle’s challenge will be convincing top targets to join them while in a relegation battle. Therefore, they may have to look for smaller deals for players who could grow with them, like Campbell.”
