Pundit Stan Collymore has urged Newcastle United to make a splash in the transfer market this summer, stating the Tyneside outfit should try to sign Cesc Fabregas, John Terry and Jermain Defoe.
Rafa Benitez has successfully led the St James Park outfit back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, with the Geordies claiming the Championship title on the final day of the season.
The Spanish manager is expected to push owner Mike Ashley for a financial commitment to improve the squad this summer as Newcastle prepare for the step up to the top division.
Terry is expected to leave Chelsea this summer on a free transfer and talk in the press has stated that he will be open to playing for another English team next season.
Fabregas has mostly been a fringe player for Antonio Conte this term but will surely look for a team playing in the Champions League if he is to leave the London side this summer.
Defoe has had an excellent season with Sunderland, but the veteran striker making the move from Wearside to Tyneside would be a massive controversy.
Despite this, Collymore has picked the trio as the players he feels Newcastle should target this summer.
“Ashley must trust his manager, let him use his contacts and profile in the game — and there are three players in particular I’d love to see Benitez go for,” the pundit wrote in The Mirror.
They are Cesc Fabregas, John Terry and Jermain Defoe, who would all do a sensational job at St James’ Park.”
