Newcastle United have been tipped to sign Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic in January.

Pulisic has struggled for game time at Stamford Bridge this season and former Everton striker Kevin Campbell believes that St James’s Park could be a good place for the 24-year-old to be playing regular football.

“I like Pulisic. He is a very good player.” Campbell said.

“It has not worked out for him at Chelsea. He normally just comes off the bench. As an international, he wants to start games. He will feel he deserves to start games.

“I think he would benefit from a move to a club where he can play week in, week out. He needs to build himself back up.

“Could Newcastle offer him that? I think they could. Newcastle need players who can take them to the next level.

Allan Saint-Maximin is unplayable on his day, but he is not always available. The best ability is availability. Saint-Maximin is just not available enough.”

According to reports in Turkey, Newcastle United are interested in signing goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.

The Trabzonspor stopper has also been linked with a move to Manchester City with reports that Newcastle are ‘closely following’ the 26-year-old who has kept three clean sheets in just seven league starts this season. Trabzonspor reportedly value Cakir at £17.5million.

After allowing Martin Dubravka to join Manchester United during the summer transfer window, and following injury to back-up ‘keeper Karl Darlow, the Magpies were forced to dip into the free agent market to sign Loris Karius to act as deputy to Nick Pope.
