Steve Bruce has told the Telegraph’s Luke Edwards that the club are expecting to sign “three or four” quality players this summer.
The NUFC boss states the plan is to add “quality” to the “experienced core” we’ve already got, vowing to make moves to sign the targets that have already been identified once the coronavirus crisis ‘blows over’ and the transfer window opens.
Here’s what he’s had to say during an ‘exclusive’ chat with the Telegraph:
“The plan is to grow and improve,”
“We will add three or four quality players in the summer to the experienced core we have got.
“Players like Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin, who everybody can see have improve us.
“We have identified transfer targets and when this blows over, we will make the moves to get them. We know what we need.”
Promising comments from Bruce, with it seeming that our policy this summer is quality over quantity.
It’s also interesting that he uses Almiron and Saint-Maximin as examples when discussing the type of players he plans to bring in, suggesting he may be looking to sign a few more ‘game changers’ able to get bums off seats inside St James’ Park.
As for the ‘three or four’ signings, I’d like to bet the areas targeted will be a striker, winger, central midfielder and left-back.
Time will tell!
