Lorenzo Insigne and John Stones are the latest high profile names who could be offered to the new-look Newcastle United, according to The Chronicle.
Toon fans have been overwhelmed the past week with links to players who, this time last week, we could never have even dreamed of signing.
Lee Ryder, The Chronicle’s chief writer, claims Newcastle could be in the hunt for Italian forward Insigne when his contract expires at the end of the season, with a Serie A expert telling the paper that he’ll be offered our way.
The report claims the Napoli winger is currently earning £74,000 a week – a wage the PIF could easily double now they’ve made us the richest club on the planet.
Signings world class players on free agents could be a smart tactic from our new owners next summer, with us looking to improve the side while operating within Financial Fair Play rules.
As for Stones, the Man City defender was one of the best performers under Pep Guardiola last season, but has found first-team football hard to come by this campaign and hasn’t played a single minute of Premier League football.
Gareth Southgate has stayed loyal and kept him in the England side and he scored the equaliser in the Three Lion’s 1-1 with Hungary.
