With the start of the January transfer window just weeks away, we asked Newcastle fans who they would like to join the club.  

The Magpies have been linked with many players for the upcoming transfer window, including James Maddison, Leandro Trossard and Cody Gakpo.  

Michael, a student at Newcastle University, said: “The ideal signing would be James Maddison. We’ve got a top-class winger in Almiron and two fantastic midfielders, but we could do with one more of each, and Maddison can fill both roles with his dribbling ability, creativity and goalscoring. He would be a statement signing.” 

Alan, 38, also said that James Maddison would be the preferred signing, saying: “He is back in the England fold and has everything. Goals, assists and workrate.” 

Newcastle saw two bids rejected in the summer for James Maddison and may return with a fresh offer in January for the 26-year-old.  

Ben, 18, said: “[Christian] Pulisic. He suits the way that we play, and he would improve a lot under Howe.” The winger was away at the World Cup with America and impressed in games against England and Iran at the group stage.  

Olly, a worker at Nissan, said that Gakpo would be a great signing: “He is a young player with a lot of great potential. He has a lot of experience at club level and his country as we have seen at the World Cup. He has bags of quality.”  

Matthew, 19, said: “Signing [Sofyan] Amrabat would be an ideal player to fit the deep central midfield role in our current set up. His great performances at the World Cup have proved he could do a good job against elite level players and would work very well with Joelinton and Bruno [Guimarães].”  

The prospect of adding additional quality in January is exciting for Newcastle fans, as they will look to build on their impressive record going into the second half of the season.
