Report: Newcastle intend to do most summer business in Spain and Germany

Newcastle United are expected to add quality to their squad over the summer transfer window.

Newcastle United are targeting the Spanish and German markets in the summer transfer window, according to a report in the Chronicle.

The Magpies reportedly feel that players from La Liga and the Bundesliga offer good value for money and they are tipped to step up their recruitment drives in both these countries. 

Newcastle have been scouting Spain and Germany heavily and they have formed some good contacts in the two countries, as a result.

The North East outfit have already felt the benefit of these, with their transfer of Ayoze Perez from Tenerife being a huge success.

Perez was brought in last season as a relative unknown, but he has rapidly created a reputation for himself and is now one of the most exciting players in their squad.

The success of this deal may have encouraged Newcastle to continue shopping in this region and they may be hoping further additions could work out just as well. 

The Chronicle also say that Newcastle have been scouting Belgium and France too, but they regard these two divisions as back-up options.
