Earlier this summer Rafael Benitez suggested that Newcastle United do have the funds available to them to make a marquee signing this summer.
And an irresistible opportunity may just have presented itself to Newcastle.
Arsenal may have to offload Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer, in a deal worth around £30 million.
That could be difficult for Chelsea or Liverpool to offer, but Newcastle could bring Oxlade-Chamberlain in and make him their number 10.
The Magpies are likely to still need an increase in creativity, if they are to be a major threat at Premier League level.
And Oxlade-Chamberlain would have the ability to become the creative fulcrum of Benitez’s team.
The former Southampton man is still only 23, meaning he has plenty of time to develop.
And if Newcastle were able to bring the skilful attacker to St. James’ Park, it would really show they mean business ahead of the new campaign.
