The Magpies at present sit eight factors above the Premier League relegation locations forward of internet hosting bottom-three strugglers West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, however have confirmed extraordinarily reliant on summer season signing Callum Wilson since his arrival from AFC Bournemouth.
Wilson has accounted for seven of Newcastle’s 12 top-flight strikes over the opening 10 fixtures, with Allan Saint-Maximin, Jacob Murphy, Jeff Hendrick and £40million report signing Joelinton every discovering the again of the online simply as soon as.
Does Bruce have to signal a brand new striker?
Sure, it is an apparent want
No, he has sufficient STs
Bruce is but to see Andy Carroll rating since making his Tyneside return in 2019, both, because the 31-year-old has been unable to interrupt the aim line in any of his 30 outings in black and white after being launched by West Ham following an injury-ravished spell in east London.
Experiences have surfaced suggesting the Toon are on the hunt for offensive reinforcements this winter, tipping Aberdeen’s Sam Cosgrove as a possible £2m possibility to supply an improved degree of depth behind Wilson and Joelinton.
And former Newcastle midfielder Lee, who spent 10-years at St. James’ Park, believes Ashley is loath to offer Bruce with the funds he wants to higher the Magpies with a confirmed Premier League striker in January.
“When Callum Wilson doesn’t play, we appear to be we’re not going to attain so we definitely want any individual who’s going to attain some targets, however they price some huge cash and I don’t consider for a one minute that Steve Bruce might be given some huge cash to spend,” Lee advised Soccer FanCast.
“To get a confirmed goalscorer within the Premier League will price you an terrible lot of cash, however I believe we’d like a inventive participant. Somebody who can play within the 10 from midfield, will get ahead, scores targets, creates targets, as a result of it’s alright having a centre-forward up there, however you’ve bought to create probabilities for them.
“I believe we’d like a right-back as nicely. When our crew’s on the pitch, it’s okay, it’s not dangerous, we are able to deal with most individuals however once we’ve bought just a few accidents, we are able to’t cope and a Premier League crew the stature of Newcastle used to have power in debt, which we haven’t bought.”
Wilson’s pivotal significance to Bruce’s plans stretches past his team-high seven targets within the Premier League, because the £20m former Bournemouth ace additionally accounts for essentially the most pictures (15), pictures on the right track (8) and assists (2) by a Newcastle participant so far this time period, whereas rating second solely to defender Jamal Lewis (9) for key balls (8) and second to Saint-Maximin (2) for large probabilities created (1), per SofaScore.
Bruce’s dire want for offensive reinforcements is additional laid naked in Joelinton solely discovering the goal with 5 pictures in his 9 appearances so far, but rating second to Wilson with Saint-Maximin solely discovering the mark on 4 events and Jonjo Shelvey – who missed three video games by a groin damage – fourth with three on-target efforts to his title.
It stays to be seen if Ashley does put his hand in his pocket and coughs up the money Bruce wants for Newcastle to signal a confirmed Premier League striker in January, however they definitely want one.
AND in different information, Steve Bruce is in talks for Newcastle United to signal a £75k-p/w worldwide who’s “getting into into his prime”.
