We are drawing closer to that time when clubs splash the cash to strengthen their squad as well as doing away with those they feel are surplus to requirement. Ahead of this year's edition of buying and selling, speculations about what clubs intend doing have been flying all over the place. We have got one here for you.

Reports suggest that Newcastle United are weighing up a switch for Danny Welbeck in the fast-approaching summer transfer window.

This is coming after they reportedly missed out on sealing a move for the striker when business was ongoing in January.

The English international if not offered a new contract in coming weeks would become a free agent meaning Arsenal will get nothing to pocket from his departure.

Welbeck has endured an injury-plagued reign since joining via a £16million deal from Manchester United in 2014.

He has impressed but the fact that he has been off the pitch more than he has been on it calls for concern.

The 28-year-old previously suffered two injuries that kept him out for nine months on two different occasions before the current one that sidelined him since November 2018.

Besides, he will find it hard to get regular playtime with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still at the club.

At his age and due to competition, it won't be a bad idea for him to head somewhere else so as to be able to feature more often, and Rafael Benitez's side is just one of the perfect options he has.
