It seems like Newcastle has their eyes on a special transfer target. Do you have any guesses on who it might be?

Despite an utterly turbulent second full campaign in charge of Newcastle, Eddie Howe could yet lead them back into the Premier League’s top six.

They do have somewhat of a fight on the cards with Chelsea and Manchester United but Europa League qualification feels like a genuine possibility.

There are still battles to wage this season but, naturally, attention is already turning to the summer transfer window.

Newcastle were reportedly on the hunt for defensive reinforcement this summer even before long-term injuries to Sven Botman and Jamaal Lascelles.
