Newcastle’s New owners first £400,000 marquee signing revealed

Newcastle United's Saudi-led takeover was completed on Thursday, and the club have already been linked with several household names from around the globe as they plot a squad overhaul.

Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey is reportedly being looked at as their first big-name signing at the club following their £305million takeover.

Newcastle are considered to be the richest club in world football, with a host of big-name players already linked with January moves to St James Park.

The club’s ambitious owners have already expressed their desire to win the Premier League and to do so they will need to bring in a number of marquee signings.

According to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, Ramsey is considering a return the Premier League, and Newcastle are one potential option.

The same reports says that Juventus sporting director Federico Cherubini wants to get rid Ramsey’s hefty £400,000-a-week wages off the books.

Former Aston Villa captain Gabriel Agbonlahor recently told talkSPORT that he thinks Newcastle should sign Ramsey, while also mentioning Philippe Coutinho as a potential option.

“I’d go and get Ramsey or someone like that,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’d take Coutinho, too, because we were talking about the Man City takeover and they had Robinho come in.”
