Newcastle United’s takeover appears to be edging ever closer and the financial clout that the northeast outfit will possess has already been seen with them being linked to many a European star.

The latest of which is former Liverpool hotshot Philippe Coutinho, who has struggled to gain a regular opportunity at Barcelona, so much so that he’s currently on loan at Bayern Munich.

Who the heck is that?! Can you name all 25 of these obscure Newcastle signings…

According to Sport.es, the Magpies want to make the Brazilian playmaker their first signing under the new regime with the La Liga outfit willing to listen to offers whilst the Bundesliga giants are unlikely to make the move permanent this summer.

The 27-year-old is valued at £50.4m by Transfermarkt, which is a whopping decrease since leaving Anfield for a total of around £142m in January 2018.
