Fans Think They Already Know Who Newcastle's First "Big Name Signing" Will Be Under New Owners

It's the beginning of a new era at Newcastle United, one that will doubtless see several star players make their way North to don the famous Black and White strip.

However, some fans are already casting their minds ahead to January, wondering who the club will target first after the Saudi Investment Group's high-profile takeover.

One man who might just fit the bill is Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who, despite being one of the Italian club's highest earners, could be let go this winter.

The former Arsenal man has struggled with injury during his time in Serie A, and after an underwhelming two-year spell, now could be the perfect time for Newcastle to swoop.

According to the Daily Mail, Ramsey has been deemed surplus to requirements, after starting just 25 games in total for The Old lady.

The 30-year-old arrived in Turin back in 2019 on a free transfer from Arsenal.

Juventus have a remarkable track record of shrewd free signings down the years, having also picked up Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba for next to nothing previously.

And yet, for whatever reason, things never quite worked out as planned for the Welshman - which does open the door to a Premier League return in a few months time.

Signing Ramsey would be a coup for Newcastle's new owners, as they are one of the few clubs who could - in theory at least - match his current Juve wage of £187,000 per week.

Fans on social media were quick to link the Magpies with Ramsey, after stories of his planned exit emanated online at the same time as the Premier League club's takeover.

Could we see the club target big names like Ramsey in January, or will the new owners instead go after exciting young talents like Jude Bellingham?

Nobody knows for the time being at least, but the January transfer window should offer us some fascinating clues as to how the club will operate long-term.
