Magpies need options in the attacking line, and a move with £2 million could be a cheap plan for them.

Newcastle is reportedly planning to sign Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove in the winter transfer window.

The Scottish Sun has claimed that

's scouts are closely monitoring the 24-year-old English striker and will likely try to sign him in the winter transfer window. Aberdeen had previously agreed to sell their striker to French club Guingamp in the summer. The French club's offer was £2 million, but in the end, Cosgrove turned it down. Now it looks like his transfer to the Premier League is very likely.

Paying £2 million for Newcastle to buy the striker would be a cheap figure, and club boss Steve Bruce needs to increase his options on the attack line. They have scored 12 goals in 10 Premier League games this season and have problems in the attacking line. That stats put them 14th in the table, and this week's game against Aston Villa was postponed due to the outbreak of the Covid 19 virus among Newcastle players.

Cosgrove has scored 45 goals in 94 games for Aberdeen. Last season he scored 23 goals in 37 games, but this season he made his debut in October and has scored one goal in 7 games. He joined Aberdeen from Carlisle in January 2018 and already has a history of playing for Everton.
