Despite struggling in the Premier League drop zone for most of the 2021/22 season, Newcastle United lifted themselves to a respectable 11th-place finish last term.
Inspired by charismatic manager Eddie Howe and wealthy new owners, the Magpies will target their first top-half finish in England’s top-flight since 2017/18.
With a host of Europe’s top players linked with a summer switch to St James’ Park, no one can put it past Newcastle to join a battle for the European spots in 2022/23.
Highly-rated Ligue 1 starlets Hugo Ekitike of Reims and Lille’s Sven Botman reside at the top of Howe’s shopping list going into the summer transfer window.
As per 90min, the Magpies are growing frustrated with delays in their unrelenting bid to sign Ekitike.
Yet, there is still plenty of optimism that the deal will soon go through.
With less than two months left before the kick-off of the 2022/23 season, Howe wants to get Newcastle’s affairs in order as soon as possible.
Newly-promoted Nottingham Forest will arrive at St James’ Park on August 6 to get the Magpies’ 2022/23 Premier League fixtures underway.
Howe’s desire to see out the signings of Ekitike and Botman in no time comes as no surprise.
In terms of opponents, August will not be kind to Newcastle by any stretch of the imagination.
