NEWCASTLE’S ownership group will meet to firm up their January transfer plans in the next two weeks, with Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe having emerged as an early potential target for the turn of the year.

The Londoner has also been linked with a possible move to West Ham United, and while Mikel Arteta will be reluctant to lose anyone in January with his side in the midst of a Premier League title challenge, the Spaniard could come under pressure to allow Smith Rowe to leave if an acceptable offer is received.

It has been suggested that Arsenal value Smith Rowe at around £50m, but FFP rules would almost certainly force Newcastle to be creative when it came to putting together a deal for the attacking midfielder.

Definitely should get at least the Anthony Gordon fee for him if he leaves, but would be gutted if he does. Don't see where he gets a start under Arteta, though.

Newcastle line up January move for Premier League midfielder - as plans are firmed up

NEWCASTLE’S ownership group will meet to firm up their January transfer plans in the next two weeks, with Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe having emerged as an early potential target for the turn of the year.


Directors Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi are due to meet with Newcastle chairman Yasir al-Rummayan, who is the head of the club’s majority owners, the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, before the end of the international break to discuss their options for the January window.
Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe will also be involved in the discussions, which will help to finalise a budget for when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year. With Newcastle having spent around £120m on Sandro Tonali, Harvey Barnes and Tino Livramento in the summer, and committed more than £30m to the likely purchase of Lewis Hall when his current loan deal expires at the end of the season, there is unlikely to be scope for major incomings in January.


However, with the Magpies fighting on four fronts this season, and hoping to qualify for Europe again next term, there is a determination to do everything possible to support Howe’s ongoing attempts to continue driving Newcastle forward.

It is understood that Smith Rowe has already been discussed within Newcastle’s recruitment team as a potential target, with his lack of game time with Arsenal this season potentially opening the door for a transfer.
The 23-year-old’s only senior start for Arsenal this term came in the Carabao Cup, and his only Premier League involvement came courtesy of two substitute appearances that amounted to a combined total of ten minutes. He was an unused substitute as Arsenal beat Manchester City at the weekend, and while he boasts three senior England caps, the fact he was not even considered for Gareth Southgate’s current squad underlines the extent to which his career has stagnated in the last year or so
The Londoner has also been linked with a possible move to West Ham United, and while Mikel Arteta will be reluctant to lose anyone in January with his side in the midst of a Premier League title challenge, the Spaniard could come under pressure to allow Smith Rowe to leave if an acceptable offer is received.

It has been suggested that Arsenal value Smith Rowe at around £50m, but FFP rules would almost certainly force Newcastle to be creative when it came to putting together a deal for the attacking midfielder.

Ideally, the Magpies would almost certainly prefer an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer in the future, which is the arrangement that enabled them to complete Hall’s summer move from Chelsea. Whether that would interest Arsenal remains to be seen, although Arteta did agree to the loan departure of both Kiernan Tierney, to Real Sociedad, and Albert Sambi Lokonga, to Luton Town, in the summer.

Newcastle will also look to move on another two or three of their fringe players in January in an attempt to further balance the books.




We should sell, I thought we'd never get back his value (Villa offer) given how injury prone he is.

If he cannot get game time for us it is only fair for us to sell him to a club where he wants to go. He has done nothing wrong as far as I can see it and if Newcastle is fine as a destination for him and the club I say sell him. I will only have love for the lad. He was a bright light during a very dark time. 💯

No saka or Martinelli and he can’t get a start. Said in the summer I only see him starting the league cup and that is looking more and more likely. Even Nelson seem to be ahead of him from the bench. Just sell him for his own sake. Don’t want him to rot on the bench when he is clearly good enough to have a solid career in the pl

It's a shame that ESR has had so many injuries it is taking a big chunk of his playing career away, He looked like he was about to break into the team only to be injured, And now you can't rely on him because you don't know when the next injury is going to happen.

Maybe, Maybe. But maybe not. He may fire the Magpies to a title before we get one.. Why strengthen a rival?

Because we'd get £50m and he isn't good enough to play in a title winning team regularly. If he was good enough he'd be getting gametime.

It's possible Newcastle are desperate for a 10 and they'll pay through the nose for our back up. Brilliant business if we can do that.

We cant sell this player, he gives us what Maddison gives Sp**s between the lines. He's that good.

Arteta needs to incorporate him into our squad, otherwise such a transfer becomes a reality.

Can see us selling if theres an offer of £50M on the table, especially with the rumoured interest in Neto.
Either way ESR isn't a big priority here, he's behind Havertz, Vieira and probably Rice/Partey for the 8 role. If Timber was fit he'd also find himself behind Zinchenko. Not a chance he starts over Ødegaard as the 10.
