We know that Newcastle United's top priority this summer is to find a player to take over on the right-hand side of the attack from Miguel Almiron.

Miguel Almiron remains at Newcastle, but the club are desperately trying to move him on after he refused a transfer to Saudi Pro League side Al-Shabab in January, but that's not stopping the Magpies from shopping for his replacement.

Jarrod Bowen sits atop of the Magpies' list, but both he and West Ham are adamant that he's going nowhere this summer.

Swedish international Anthony Elanga is also in their sights after they tried to bring him from Nottingham Forest as part of the Elliot Anderson switch. Forest are also keen to retain Elanga, but Newcastle could test their resolve.

Noni Madueke is still of interest to Newcastle

Newcastle retain an interest in Chelsea forward Noni Madueke

The Athletic have also confirmed that Newcastle retain an interest in Chelsea forward Noni Madueke who joined the Blues just last summer for £29million.

Madueke was seen as the alternative should Newcastle's £60million bid for Michael Olise fail, which it did, however with Chelsea also chasing Olise before his move to Bayern Munich, reports were that Chelsea would still want to keep Madueke even if they landed the former Crystal Palace man.

The fact that Olise opted for Bayern Munich means that Newcastle could find some tough resistance for Madueke, which means all three options could be hard work for Newcastle.

Madueke has plenty of potential after an unimpressive season

Chelsea.news reported on Newcastle's interest in Madueke earlier today and they finished off their piece with this:

"If Newcastle really did make their interest serious, we’re not sure there would be too much dissent around Stamford Bridge – assuming a top player came in to replace him."

That doesn't exactly fill us with confidence that he'd be the right move to make. Madueke did play 34 times for Chelsea last season scoring eight goals and providing three assists. Hardly inspiring numbers, but the fact that he was selected so often suggest that Mauricio Pochettino saw something in him.

Maudeke is only 22 so he could still have plenty to learn and could develop into a top player.
