Newcastle United fans want to see a Striker transfer
Are satisfied with Newcastle United's recruitment so far this summer
Sven Botman / £35m / Lille
At 22, there's plenty more to come from the Dutch centre-back but he's already an accomplished player. His positioning is generally excellent and he's good in the air but a lack of pace is a concern. 3/5
Matt Targett / £15m / Aston Villa
A solid if unspectacular signing in a position of need. Targett endeared himself to the Geordie faithful last season and the move is a logical one given their other options in the position and the reasonable fee. 3/5
Nick Pope / £10m / Burnley
A top-class shot stopper and an upgrade in goal for Newcastle but his disturbution leaves a bit to be desired and means he's not quite the perfect fit for Eddie Howe's system. 3/5
Loan / Norwich
Loan / Reading
Loan / Sheffield United
Undisclosed / Stoke City
Newcastle gathered 38 points in the second half of last season. Only Liverpool (51) and Manchester City (46) collected more.
Newcastle became the first team ever to go winless in their first 14 games of the Premier League campaign and avoid relegation.
Allan Saint-Maximin once again proved the entertainer in this side, leading the top five European leagues in both most successful dribbles (140) and most dribbles attempted (230).
Callum Wilson has finished as Newcastle’s topscorer the last two seasons despite missing a combined 35 games through injury in that time.
Newcastle are a club transformed by a change of ownership and their rise can continue with a top-eight finish on the cards in 2022-23. Ongoing investment is improving the quality of the squad and there is a feel-good factor among the supporters after the strong finish to last term. Fans are looking forward to a Champions League nights in the future but top-level European football may have to wait.
