After making headlines, Newcastle United look all set to go big as the January transfer window arrives. The Magpies have now been overtaken by one of the wealthiest men in the world, and the richest owner in world football. While they are struggling massively in the league right now, Newcastle United will be backed by their owners this transfer window to bolster their team. We look at the 3 Arsenal players Newcastle United can target to buy.
#3 Gabriel Martinelli
Regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the league, Gabriel Martinelli could well be on Newcastle’s wishlist. The 20-year-old truly made his mark when he ran past Ngolo Kante of Chelsea and found the net as he pulled off an iconic celebration in front of the Chelsea fans. Martinelli’s ability to dribble combined with his blistering pace makes him the perfect winger going forward.
The Brazilian is also very versatile, as he has been used as a striker as well by gaffer Mikel Arteta. While it will not be easy to convince Arsenal to sell their young gun, they could be tempted if a big offer arrives for him.
#2 Eddie Nketiah
Eddie Nketiah has less than a year on his contract at the Emirates and is not looking to extend anytime soon. While he was heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this season, he eventually decided to stay as Arteta convinced him to do so. Nketiah has been phenomenal for his country at the U21 level and is one for the future.
The Gunners will look to put him up for sale in the winter transfer window should he not put pen to paper in January. Newcastle United lack attacking options and Eddie Nketiah could just be the one.
#1 Rob Holding
Rob Holding has been previously linked to Newcastle United on several occasions and their interest could regenerate again this January. The Magpies will certainly look to improve their defence with Fernandez and Clark being their only options at the center-back position.
With the arrival of Ben White, Holding’s place has been a big question mark. Arteta’s first team options, Ben White and Gabriel have been nailed starters after keeping 3 clean sheets on the trot, as Rob Holding tops this list of 3 Arsenal players Newcastle United can target to buy.
