Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United are now showing interest in former Manchester City forward Ferran Torres.

That is according to TuttoJuve, which has named three other clubs who want to sign the Barcelona forward in the January transfer window.

So, what has been reported about Newcastle United and Ferran Torres? Let’s take a look.

Newcastle United linked with former Manchester City forward Ferran Torres

Well, according to TuttoJuve, Newcastle United are interested in signing  Ferran Torres from Barcelona in the January transfer window.

The report in the Italian news outlet has claimed that Torres wants more playing time and “is seriously thinking about leaving Barcelona”.

TuttoJuve has noted the competition that the Spain international forward is facing at Barcelona at the moment, stating that he could “consider tempting offers to move on loan”.

Unfortunately for Eddie Howe’s side, they are not the only club who are keen on the 23-year-old. Juventus, Napoli and Atletico Madrid, too, are interested in Torres, who cost Barcelona £46.3 million (Sky Sports) in transfer fees when they signed him from City in January 2022.

Arsenal and Aston Villa were linked with Torres in the summer of 2023.

My View: Newcastle United should avoid signing Ferran Torres

In my view, Newcastle United should not sign Ferran Torres from Barcelona in the January transfer window, even on a loan deal.

I do not think that the 23-year-old would make the Magpies better or more potent in attack.

Yes, Torres is a very good ‘forward’, but he is not a ‘natural’ striker. I do not think that the youngster will score too many goals.

While Newcastle could do with signing a ‘striker’ who could score goals regularly when Callum Wilson is not playing, I do not think that Torres is the right player.

Torres has scored three goals in 14 La Liga matches and has scored two goals and given one assist in five UEFA Champions League games for Barcelona this season.
