Newcastle Transfer Odds: Who Could Sign For The Magpies In January?
There are just two days of the January transfer window remaining and betting sites anticipate plenty of business being done between now and midnight on Tuesday.
Newcastle United are among the clubs looking to bolster their ranks before the deadline, as Eddie Howe attempts to secure a top-four finish for his side this season.
The Magpies recently completed a deal to sign Anthony Gordon from Everton, with the £45m man in line to make his debut against West Ham United on Saturday.
Newcastle could make further acquisitions before Tuesday - and you can find the latest transfer odds below.
Leicester Duo Still On Newcastle’s Radar
Newcastle were linked with both James Maddison and Youri Tielemans last summer, but both players ended up staying at Leicester City.
However, it is increasingly clear that their futures lie away from the King Power Stadium, and Newcastle could renew their efforts to sign either player in the next 36 hours or so.
Maddison is available at a best price of 7/2 to begin next month at St James’ Park.
Newcastle have struggled for goals of late, and Howe would no doubt love to add more guile and invention to his team’s attack.
However, prising Maddison away from Leicester at this late stage of the window will be tricky.
The Foxes could be more open to a deal for Youri Tielemans, who is priced at 5/1 to join Newcastle.
The Belgian is out of contract in the summer, when Leicester risk losing him for nothing.
Chelsea May Need To Offload One Or Two Players
Chelsea have picked up where they left off in the summer, signing Andrey Santos, Noni Madueke, Mykhailo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana and Malo Gusto so far in this window.
And they are not done yet, with the Blues now ready to revive their interest in Enzo Fernandez despite a hefty £105m price tag.
Even if they do not capture the Argentine, Chelsea will surely need to offload one or two players before Tuesday’s deadline.
Conor Gallagher, available at 5/1 to join Newcastle, would bring energy and dynamism to a midfield which has lost Jonjo Shelvey to Nottingham Forest, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is listed at 7/1.
Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech are both priced at 4/1 with football betting sites, but the signing of Gordon means Newcastle may now be focused on improving other areas of their squad.
Amrabat And Mac Allister Alternative Midfield Targets
“I rate him very highly,” Howe said of Shelvey on Monday. “But there is his situation to think about and that’s where we’ve come to. We’ll see what we can do in the market to try and bring a player in.”
As well as Gallagher and Loftus-Cheek, betting apps offer odds on Newcastle going for Alexis Mac Allister (11/1), Sofyan Amrabat (12/1) and Enzo Fernandez (25/1).
Chelsea appear to be the only show in town as far as the latter is concerned, while Fiorentina will be loath to lose Amrabat right before the deadline.
Ditto Mac Allister, whom Brighton expect to be at the Amex Stadium until the end of the campaign at the earliest.
Hazard And Ramos Among Overseas Targets
Eden Hazard’s dream move to Real Madrid turned into a nightmare, with various injury issues restricting the Belgian to a bit-part role at best.
The former Chelsea man would probably consider a return to the Premier League and Newcastle are priced at 6/1 with Unibet to buy him, but this would be a risky signing given his fitness record.
Goncalo Ramos is available at 10/1 to end up in the northeast of England.
He caught the eye for Portugal at World Cup 2022, but Benfica want to keep him at the club for a while longer yet.
Maguire And Harrison Are Longer Domestic Shots
Jack Harrison (10/1) was thought to be on Newcastle’s radar earlier this month, but it is hard to see them buying both him and Gordon in the same window.
That is good news for Leeds United, who will want to keep hold of a player who has been key to their rise in recent years.
Harry Maguire is no doubt considering his future beyond this season, having lost his place as a regular starter at Manchester United.
But it is not worth taking up odds of 10/1 on a January switch to Newcastle, with Maguire likely to stay put at Old Trafford for now.
