3 Chelsea players Newcastle should target in January

3 Chelsea players Newcastle should target in January

Newcastle takeover completed

The main news in the football world this month has of course been that Newcastle United now have new owners.

After 14 years of Mike Ashley, Newcastle finally said goodbye to the owner of Sports Direct on Thursday.

The magpies have been purchased by SAPIF, PCP Capital Partners, and RB Sports & Media, with an official announcement arriving on October

In the later part of this development, since then it has been revealed that the new owners of Newcastle have wealth worth more than 10 times that of the current owners of Manchester City.

It has also been He suggested that magpies will be able to spend more than £ 200 million over the next three years, without violating the rules of Financial Fair Play.

In turn, now that Newcastle appears to be the richest club in world football, Geordie’s team is of course expected to spend a lot in the coming months.

Although Newcastle now have the richest owners in world football, they, despite all the social media memes, will obviously not be able to bring the caliber of players like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé.

What the Magpies should be able to do, however, is target some of the fringe stars of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.

Such players were probably out of Newcastle’s grasp in previous years, partly due to the Northeast team’s limited budget and also because, let’s be honest, very few major stars would have left clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United to join Newcastle.

And while it could still be a few years before Newcastle can truly establish themselves as a Premier League first-half side, a good salary package will likely convince some players to make the move to Newcastle.

With that in mind, here are three Chelsea players Newcastle should target in the January transfer window.

Ross Barkley

On paper, Ross Barkley looks like the perfect signing for Newcastle in January.

The Englishman’s time at Chelsea has been quite disappointing and with 18 months remaining on his current contract in January, the Blues moved Barkley over the winter makes sense.

So far this season, the midfielder has racked up just 36 minutes of action for Chelsea across all competitions, suggesting that Chelsea probably wouldn’t need much to break away from him.

Meanwhile, from Newcastle’s perspective, they would get a proven Premier League midfielder who would only be 28 at the time of signing, meaning they should get at least three years out of Barkley in his prime.

And while he has struggled at Stamford Bridge, Barkley’s loan to Aston Villa last season showed that he is still very capable at this level when given the opportunity.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Ruben Loftus-Cheek finds himself in a situation similar to that of the aforementioned Barkley.

Although he has played more minutes in 2021/22 (215 in five starts), it is fair to say that Loftus-Cheek still has 4th or 5th choice in the pecking order of Chelsea’s midfield today.

And with Billy Gilmour and Conor Gallagher returning to the club next year, it seems the 25-year-old’s chance to secure a regular spot in Chelsea’s midfield has come and gone.

However, this is not to say that RLC is not someone worth targeting, especially for a promising side like Newcastle.

The Englishman has been hampered by injuries throughout his career, but when in shape, his ability to face players and control the game from deep down, as he has done at times with Chelsea this season, it is certainly a positive thing.

Hakim Ziyech

The last Chelsea player Newcastle should try to sign is Hakim Ziyech.

This pick is perhaps the least likely option on the list, but since Ziyech has yet to become a regular feature at Chelsea with Thomas Tuchel, who knows what could happen if the right offer came through.

The Moroccan has certainly displayed patches of quality throughout his Chelsea career, but every time he has hit a hot streak of form, it has usually ended with injury.

And given that Ziyech doesn’t fit too well into Tuchel’s system, perhaps Chelsea could sell Ziyech in January, especially since he’s already 28 years old and probably Chelsea’s least valuable attacking asset.

Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also on the sidelines of the Londoners’ attack. But they are both significantly younger than Ziyech and CHO is also used as a right back under Tuchel, making him a more important asset today.
