The form of Steve Bruce’s side has picked up in recent weeks, meaning that the need for January signings as not as urgent as was once feared earlier in the campaign. However, you can always improve and Bowen would add more of a goalscoring threat down the right side. He has scored 36 league goals since the start of last season for Hull in the Championship, showing how clinical he is in front of goal – despite it being a level below where Newcastle play.

Miguel Almiron has not been good enough in front of goal, with no strikes in almost a year at the club. He has not been productive enough in the final third, which means that competition for his place could be a big boost to Newcastle’s squad. 

Would he be a good signing?

Yes
