Be sure to check back to 101 for regular updates in the run up to, and throughout, the January transfer window.
Magpies in pole position for Kieran Trippier
Firstly, Newcastle are allegedly becoming increasingly confident of making 31 year old Kieran Trippier one of their additions in January. The current Atletico Madrid man is out with a shoulder injury until Jnauary, but was heavily linked with a move back to England in the summer, and was reportedly keen, with Manchester United interested.
Now, however, it could be Newcastle United’s turn.
According to Football Insider:
“Newcastle are optimistic of getting a deal done as Trippier is keen to return to the UK and he is not fazed by the impending relegation fight.
He has told friends he is keen to get the deal done early in the January window.”
Would he be a good addition moving forward for the Magpies, or should they be looking for a younger profile as they look to stay in the top flight?
Dele Alli on the move?
From a past Spurs player to a present one, could there be a move to Tyneside on the cards for Dele Alli.
The Athletic revealed that the Tottenham man was free to depart the club in January, as he struggles to nail down a first team place under yet another manager, and has now been made available.
🚨 Tottenham have decided to let Dele Alli leave in January, probably on loan. Daniel Levy refused in past amid #PSG interest but stance has changed & 25yo needs regular game time. #THFC contract until 2024 & barely playing so sale unlikely @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/bQagj4buGV

It could be a move that suits both parties, and allows Dele Alli to try and re-find his form and resurrect his Tottenham career.
Chelsea enter the race for Niklas Sule
Newcastle have been linked with a move for soon-to-be out of contract Niklas Sule, potentially making him their first marquee signing under new ownership, and he would certainly improve them no end.
However, a new party have emerged, in the form of Chelsea, set to compete for his signature.
The Blues are set to lose Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on free transfers come the end of the season, and are reportedly looking at the Bayern Munich man to replace one of them, report Football.London.
Would Niklas Sule be a good replacement for Antonio Rudiger?👀🤔https://t.co/Pxyd4Qp2O9
