Newcastle can still complete four deals despite transfer window closing if they target free agents

Newcastle United had a good January transfer window but must target more signings to help them stay in the Premier League. The Magpies knew they had to do good business to salvage their season. They still sit in the relegation zone and need one win to get out of the relegation zone. Their five signings in the January transfer window can help them stay in the Premier League.

These five signings will probably directly slot in the starting lineup. However, the quality of depth must also be improved in order to achieve consistency in results. Newcastle lacks experience in the squad and does not have winners with a fighting mentality. A combination of a young and experienced squad can help a lot to the club.

Newcastle had a disastrous start to the season and have not changed their results completely under Eddie Howe. However, that needs to change if they want to stay in the league for the next season. The Saudi takeover can help the club in getting players according to the manager. They can help the club invest in order to grow.

What options are available for Newcastle to target for even after the transfer window?

Diego Costa

He would be an absolute statement signing for Newcastle United. Although he is not as good as he was at Chelsea or at Atletico Madrid, he can still use his experience and the fight in him to survive the relegation battle. Moreover, Newcastle needs that arrogance and dominance in them to fight and win but should be wary of Costa’s disciplinary record.

Mateo Musacchio

Musacchio has lost his form after his ankle injury however he is a solid rock at the back when he’s fully fit. He went to Milan in 2017 where he lost his form and could get a fresh start at Newcastle. The 31-year-old can also use his experience to succeed at Newcastle and help the Magpies rescue their season.


He is another center-back Newcastle can sign on a free. Although Newcastle have signed Dan Burn, they wanted to sign two central defenders this January. He can be that second center-back signing and can also provide depth to the Newcastle bench. Wallace has a point to prove as he failed to reach his full potential and can do that with Newcastle.


Elkeson has scored 12 goals in 185 appearances in the Chinese Super League. This goalscoring record can help Newcastle in the attacking department. Calum Wilson has remained injured for the majority of the season and needs a good backup at least till the end of the season. Newcastle did sign Chris Wood from Burnley but what happens if even he gets injured.

Newcastle United will need a lot of work to get back on track in the Premier League. They are currently not the team that can create some fear in the big clubs. They should be capable of hurting even the big clubs on their day and snatching away points. The experienced free agents can help the youngsters and teach them how to compete on the highest level.
