Newcastle’s striking problems this season have really shown on the pitch.

Dwight Gayle has failed to reproduce what he was able to do in the Championship. The 28-year-old has failed to even score so far this season, with other strikers also producing poor numbers.

Spaniards Joselu and Ayoze Perez scored once in the league, with Aleksander Mitrovic having one despite not making a start so far.

Additions are desperately needed in January if Newcastle are to survive in the Premier League this season. Goalscorers win you games, and with no Newcastle player scoring more than two so far this season, the Magpies are in real trouble.

Targets do exist though throughout Europe and closer to home in the Premier League and Championship.

Here, we look at some of the players that Newcastle could possibly look at signing in the January transfer window to help them survive in the Premier League.
