Can Newcastle Buy Their Way Out Of Relegation In The January Transfer Window? The Magpies face a difficult challenge in maintaining their Premier League status with half of the season yet to play. Newcastle United’s troubles haven’t changed in the new year. Eddie Howe’s squad is mired in a relegation struggle and in desperate need of a miracle. 

Magpies were down to the bare bones due to Covid-19 instances and noteworthy injuries to Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson, and had no option but to request that their matches against Everton and Southampton during the holiday season be postponed.

Luckily for Newcastle, the January transfer window has arrived at the ideal time, and all eyes will be on the new owners to see how much money they spend and if they can attract the right players to St James’ Park, as this could be a pivotal moment in the club’s history, determining whether the black-and-whites avoid relegation for the third time in 12 years.

A Busy Transfer Window For Eddie Howe’s Newcastle

This is the first transfer window after a Saudi-backed group completed their ownership of the club in October 2021, making The Magpies the wealthiest team in the world.

Given the club’s present league position, there is understandably a lot of pressure on the leadership this month to get the right business done. They must also offer the finances to bolster the team, since a lot of areas require immediate replacements, and Howe will be looking for players with Premier League experience.

Newcastle have been connected with everyone in the winter window despite being second bottom of the table with only one win this season, but certain targets are more probable than others.

According to reports, Kieran Trippier might join the club from Atletico Madrid soon, which would be a huge show of commitment from the new owners as well as a fantastic first acquisition.

Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey, Burnley’s James Tarkowski, LOSC Lille’s Sven Botman, and former Magpie Georginio Wijnaldum, who scored 11 goals and provided five assists in his only season at St James’ Park in 2015/16, have all been heavily linked with a move to the North East.

Leeds United, Watford, Burnley, Newcastle United, and Norwich City appear to be in a five-way fight for survival. But who will make it?

Leeds United are currently in 16th place, eight points above the relegation zone, but have failed to improve on last season’s stunning ninth-place finish, which was largely due to key injuries to midfield maestro Kalvin Phillips and talisman Patrick Bamford, who were both instrumental in the club’s successful first season back in the Premier League.
