Newcastle may have pulled off a masterstroke after recalling goalkeeper Martin Dubravka from Manchester United. The Slovakia international had been at Old Trafford on loan since the start of September but could now form part of a potential swap deal for Leicester playmaker James Maddison.
Newcastle were battling to avoid relegation to the Championship at this time last year. But fast forward 12 months and the Magpies are fighting for Champions League qualification after rising to third in the Premier League table.
The Tynesiders have lost just one of their 17 matches this season and have already beaten the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton. But to secure a top-four finish they may have to bolster their squad this month. And they have been heavily linked with Maddison, who has bagged seven goals and four assists in 13 top-flight matches this campaign.
Maddison only has 18 months remaining on his Leicester contract after putting pen-to-paper on a new deal in 2020. So the Foxes could be tempted to cash in on their prized asset. But Newcastle will have to stump up a huge transfer fee to land their man as he is currently regarded as one of the best attacking players in the country.
