Newcastle takeover complete
In case you have been under a rock, or avoided football during the international break, the long-awaited acquisition of Newcastle United by the Saudi public investment fund has finally been confirmed, making its new owners the most rich of the world.
An investment group led by the Public Investment Fund, and which also includes PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, has completed the acquisition of 100% of Newcastle United Limited and Newcastle United Football Club Limited from St. James Holdings Limited.

Amanda Staveley, a spokeswoman for the inauguration, has already set the club’s goals for the next few years in an interview, revealing that she wanted to see the club at the top of the Premier League, but stressing that it was a 10-15. project of the year and it wouldn’t happen overnight.

However, there will be movement in January.
Newcastle targeting positions revealed
Of course, Newcastle United are currently languishing in 19th place, having failed to win a game in their first 7 meetings of the season. While speculation about the future of coach Steve Bruce continues to circulate, it is clear that they also need additions in January if they are to avoid a rather humiliating relegation given the inauguration.
As previously reported, one of his main targets this January is Burnley defender James Tarkowski, who has six months left on his contract at Turf Moor when the transfer window hits.

However, this is by no means the only work Newcastle plans to do in early 2022, and the Telegraph also reports that:
The club will also seek to sign at least one full-back, a central midfielder, a winger and a center forward, but there is no limit at this time to the number of signings they can make.
If they round out the signings of seasoned Premier League players of similar caliber to Tarkowski in each of these positions, as well as players like Joe Willock and Alan Saint-Maximin, they should survive comfortably.
However, will they succeed?
