Eddie Howe may have finally discovered the flexible forward he’s been hunting for to improve his forward line. This player can cover multiple spots.

This summer, Newcastle United will place a high premium on finding a new right winger, but the key to that acquisition will be finding one who can also fill other positions, particularly center-forward, if necessary.

A flexible attacker like Anthony Gordon would be essential for the Magpies going into the upcoming campaign, as Craig Hope recently stated that Howe isn’t giving a striker much thought since he wants to hang onto Callum Wilson.

Thus, it makes sense that Newcastle is interested in Brentford attacker Bryan Mbeumo, who only cost The Bees £5.4 million in 2019, according to French publication L’Equipe.

The 24-year-old Cameroon international is coming off the back of his best season in the Premier League where, despite a three-month absence with an ankle injury, the forward still managed nine goals and six assists in 25 outings, which when compared to Miguel Almiron’s three goals and one assist in 33 outings shows why we need to upgrade.

Unfortunately for Newcastle, though, that form has also attracted the attention of Liverpool who have started to look for a long-term replacement for Mo Salah with Mbeumo telling L’Equipe that he’s open to a summer switch. CLICK TO SEE A SUPERSTAR
