How Newcastle could line up with Gordon, Zaniolo and McTominay as they look to seal transfers for top four push

    NEWCASTLE could have a very different look if they wrap some last-minute January deals.

    Toon have kept their powder dry this month, choosing to be patient while waiting for the right deal at the right price.

    But there could be a flurry of activity in the last window with Eddie Howe’s side linked to two midfielders and a winger.

    The biggest of those could be a move for Everton star Antony Gordon.

    Newcastle have reportedly opened talks with the Toffees over a £40million transfer.

    But Everton, who rejected bids from Newcastle and Chelsea for Gordon last summer, are holding out for £60m.

    Newcastle are hopeful Everton will lower their demands with Gordon absent from training amid the speculation.

    The 21-year-old could slot onto Newcastle’s left flank and provide competition for the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton.

    And he could be supported on the left by the addition of Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo.

    The Italian, 23, has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham but Newcastle attempted to hijack the deal with a £31m bid.

    That bid was rejected with the Serie A outfit looking for around £35m, but if he does arrive he could add creativity and goals to Howe’s midfield, something Newcastle have lacked.

    Manchester United star Scott McTominay could also bolster Newcastle’s midfield after the club held talks about signing the Scot.

    And the Red Devils are reportedly willing to cash in on McTominay in order to ease financial fair play concerns.

    Newcastle have also been linked with a swoop on Chelsea with three players catching their eye.

    Conor Gallagher and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are being eyed as midfield upgrades while Hakim Ziyech could boost the Magpies’ forward options.
