The topic of potential Newcastle United summer transfers has made headlines on Wednesday morning.

A report from The Mail saying that their information is that a series of meetings are scheduled to be held this week, where NUFC’s scouting team are to discuss which players should be targeted.

When it comes to Newcastle United summer transfers, the report states that the positions up for discussion are goalkeeper, centre-back, central midfield, winger and striker.

The Mail have made public 14 players who they have been informed will be amongst those being discussed for the various positions.

Goalkeepers

Bernd Leno (30 year old German international, currently number two at Arsenal)

Sam Johnstone (29 year old England international who plays for West Bromwich Albion)

Dean Henderson (25 year old England international who is number two at Manchester United)

Kepa Arrizabalaga (27 year old Chelsea player and Spanish international, although The Mail say he is seen as only a potential loan option)

Central Defenders

Josko Gvardiol (20 year old left-footed central defender who can also play left-back, plays for RB Leipzig and Croatia)

Lloyd Kelly  (23 year old England Under 21 international, is currently captain at promotion chasing Bournemouth)

Midfielders

Yves Bissouma (25 year old Brighton player who plays international football for Mali)

Kalvin Phillips (26 year old England international currently with Leeds)

Wingers

Brennan Johnson (20 year old playing for Nottingham Forest and Wales international)

Moussa Diaby (22 year old France international, who plays club football for Bayer Leverkusen

Strikers

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (25 year old England international, currently with Everton)

Darwin Nunez 22 year old striker who plays for Benfica and Uruguay)

Patrik Schick (26 year old Czech Republic international who plays club football for Bayer Leverkusen)

Alexander Isak (22 year old who plays for Real Sociedad and Sweden)

Of course, media reports from elsewhere have claimed recently that Newcastle United’s owners are set to make available a transfer kitty of only around £60m. With that figure potentially increasing depending on the sales, or not, of a significant number of players who won’t be fighting for first team places if they stay.

Assuming Premier League safety can be achieved, I think for sure what we will see, is unlike under Mike Ashley, Newcastle United will be moving for transfer targets very early in the summer window, in order to be in the best place possible for when the 2022/23 season kicks off in August.
