Newcastle should consider a summer swoop for Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj.
The Daily Mail report that Celtic, Marseille and Real Sociedad are interested in signing the 22-year-old in the transfer window.
Newcastle should enter the race for the Belgian and blow their rivals out of the park to secure his signature.
Rafael Benitez is keen to bolster his squad ahead of the club’s return to the Premier League and could do with some extra quality in the wide positions.
The Magpies already have the likes of Matt Ritchie, Christian Atsu and Yoan Gouffran as wide options, but need some extra quality to aid them in the top flight.
Januzaj is a player that divides opinion, but Newcastle should take a chance on him this summer.
The right winger has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford in recent years, which have seen him experience loans at Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland.
He has failed to set the world alight during his loan spells and provide a consistent goal threat.
Newcastle fans would see his signature as a risky move, but they certainly need some extra quality in his position and should bank on the untapped potential of the youngster.
Januzaj burst on to the scene as a youngster for United and clearly has the quality to beat an opponent with ease.
He needs some restored confidence in his game and that is something experienced boss Rafael Benitez could certainly give.
Newcastle fans have always appreciated an individual player that can get them on the edge of their seats and Januzaj certainly has the potential to do just that if he is given a consistent run of games.
In other Newcastle transfer news, a Championship club are set to rival them for a teenage goal sensation.
