There are some eye-catching names that could be available during the summer transfer window.

It is set to be a hectic summer transfer window for Newcastle United as the Magpies make a whole host of major decisions over their squad.

Several current players are approaching the final months of their current deals at St James Park and there are questions over the long-term future of stalwarts such as Paul Dummett and Matt Ritchie. Speculation over the future of big money signings Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak has continued over recent days with Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal linked with lucrative moves for the Magpies duo.

However, adding to Eddie Howe’s ranks remains a priority and there are a number of positions that have been identified as areas to improve during the summer months. Injuries to Sven Botman and Jamaal Lascelles mean that a new centre-back has jumped to the top of the agenda and improving at the top end of the pitch will also be prioritised.

United’s ongoing battle with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability regulations means the Magpies will have to be wary of overspending and they could look to the free transfer market to get some value from their summer spend. There are some high profile players that could be available as their contracts come to an end this summer - and we have identified 15 that could be of interest to the Magpies.
