Newcastle United have been linked with Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
Newcastle United fans have suggested that they should be targeting a striker instead of Jasper Cillessen in the January transfer window.
Newcastle have been said to be looking at the Barcelona stopper by El Gol Digital in Spain, as the Magpies look to improve their goalkeeping options.
Rafael Benitez has been on the hunt for a new number one at St. James’ Park for a considerable period of time.
However, while some Newcastle fans see the worth in bringing in Cillessen, others are urging Benitez to focus on bringing in a new striker rather than a goalkeeper.

WE NEED A STRIKER FIRST— Saleh (@Saleh0vic) November 9, 2017
Defo better than all our current but hopefully we strengthen further up the field too!— Liam (@Liam_Aspo) November 9, 2017
I'd take him but we need a striker.— Anthony (@Anthony__N__) November 9, 2017
All these people saying we need a striker, we’ll yeah, but do you just turn down a decent player if they become available? Of course not— Michael Bell (@mickbell38) November 9, 2017
That'd be a great shout, seen a bit of him in the Copa Del Ray.— Joshua Chapman (@Chaperman) November 9, 2017
Rob Elliott has been Newcastle’s first choice stopper over the campaign so far and the Republic of Ireland international has performed well.
Newcastle have not looked so impressive going forward though, with many of their current striking options struggling.
Joselu and Dwight Gayle have both failed to score prolifically at Premier League level, while Aleksandar Mitrovic has barely been used.
Despite Newcastle’s striking problems, they are still performing well in the Premier League, and currently sit in 11th place in the top flight standings.
