Martial to Newcastle United?
Football Transfer Centre

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has emerged as a potential target for Newcastle United ahead of the January transfer window.

The Frenchman has dropped down the pecking order this season, and he is reportedly assessing his options ahead of the New Year.

Martial scored in the recent 2-2 Premier League draw against Everton, but there are still doubts over his playing time prospects.

Marcus Rashford will return to action after the international break, and that could further hamper Martial's game time this season.

The Magpies are keeping a close eye on the proceedings following their long-awaited takeover from a Saudi-backed consortium.

The message is clear that they will spend money on big-name stars. They could be forced to do so as early as the January transfer window.

The club are languishing in 19th place in the league standings. A poor run of form in the coming months may urge the new owners to spend.

Bolstering the attack will be one of the prime priorities. Aside from Martial, Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette also appears on their radar.
