Newcastle Willing To Pay 'Crazy Money' To Land Statement Signing In January

Newcastle United are reportedly prepared to pay 'crazy money' to land one of their main transfer targets in January.

The Magpies have been linked with a host of star players following their Saudi Arabia-backed takeover.

And it appears the club have their eye on a certain midfielder ahead of the transfer window reopening at the start of next year.

According to the Athletic, Newcastle are ready to splash the cash to sign Inter Milan's Marcelo Brozovic.

The report claims they're willing to offer 'crazy money' to lure Brozovic to Tyneside amid Manchester United links.

The Croatian international is attracting interest from around Europe, with Man United thought to be keeping tabs on him ahead of potentially revamping their midfield.

Newcastle, though, are planning to offer a bigger financial package to the player in a bid to convince him to move to St. James' Park.

However, the bosses could struggle to land Brozovic with their precarious league position.

The report adds that he's unlikely to strike terms with Newcastle, who have yet to win a game in the Premier League this season.

They may have to look elsewhere for their statement signing.

The likes of Juventus' Aaron Ramsey, Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele and Man United's Donny van de Beek, among many others, have also been linked with a switch to Newcastle.

Eddie Howe's team are winless in 13 league games and are rooted to the bottom of the table.

They have just six points on the board heading into December.

Speaking about his side's transfer plans in January, Howe said: "I can't make any promises on that, but I can promise that the people above me, the owners, will support the team and support me in trying to achieve what we need.

"That's all I can say at this time. It would be foolish of me to make rash promises or statements.

"My priority at the moment is to get the best out of the players we have."
