After a solid season in the Premier League, Newcastle will look to bolster their attack once again this summer with on-loan striker Rondon not guaranteed to return to St James’ Park.

Rondon played a key role this season by scoring 11 goals and providing a further seven assists.

With Dwight Gayle likely to be sent out on loan or sold, here we look at some of his potential replacements to fill the gap Rondon will leave.

The alternatives listed range in styles and ability but Newcastle already have the services of Yoshinori Muto and Joselu as well as the more elegant players in the impressive Ayoze Perez and relatively new big-money signing Miguel Almiron.

Anyone added to the forward ranks would have to compliment their style and be fit for purpose in a hard-working Newcastle side, something Benitez demands of his players.

With the potential of a Newcastle takeover happening, that would obviously increase the target market and shop window that the club could search in for forwards.

Here are some realistic centre forward alternatives that the club could target.
