Newcastle United are expected to make significant additions to the squad in the summer transfer window despite the club having already made several signings this year. And the newcomers managed to impact the team’s performance as well, as they quickly rose through the ranks of the Premier League table and a top 10 is not out of the question now.
This might have been unthinkable a few months ago when the Magpies were one of the favorites to qualify for the Championship. So the players deserve a lot of credit.
But at the same time, Newcastle United can’t stop improving and their next goal must be to compete for a European qualification spot in the near future.
Perhaps surprisingly, the club have been linked with a number of goalkeepers of late despite Martin Dubravka’s consistent performance between positions. And journalist Pete O’Rourke has cast doubt on his future at St James’ Park. As reported by GiveMeSport, he said:
“I’m not sure Dubravka will be happy to be number two at Newcastle. It will be interesting to see if that’s the case.
Doubts rise over Dubravka’s future at Newcastle United
Dubravka deserves a lot of credit for the work he has done for Newcastle United with gloves in hand and he is one of the main reasons for the club’s improvement since the arrival of Eddie Howe as manager.
But at the same time, if the manager thinks someone else can be brought in who would improve the team as a whole, then that needs to be considered.
Newcastle United have been linked with several interesting names like Dean Henderson, Kepa Arrizabalaga and others in recent times. And it remains to be seen if The Magpies will end up making the move for one of them this summer.
If Dubravka wants to leave, there should be no lack of interest in signing him, from clubs in England and beyond.
