According to The Chronicle, Newcastle United are interested in signing two central midfielders in the January transfer window.

It has been reported that Newcastle have been scouting in France, Spain and Portugal recently for central midfielders.

The report has claimed that the Magpies are looking in the Championship in England and in the Premier League.

It has also been claimed that Newcastle have been monitoring 22-year-old Jarrod Bowen of Hull City for a long time.

 

January signings needed

Newcastle have a good squad, but manager Steve Bruce needs to add to his team for the Magpies to stave off the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season.

Bowen is a very good attacking player who has been a star in the Championship, and the 22-year-old does have the calibre to make the step-up to the Premier League.

According to WhoScored, the youngster has scored four goals and provided two assists in 11 Championship appearances for Hull so far this season.
