Newcastle United have been linked with a host of top stars due to their new-found wealth following a highly-publicised £305m Saudi takeover last week.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged the Magpies to sign Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, who is yet to start a Premier League game for Manchester United this season.
Lingard has made three substitute appearances for Manchester United in the Premier League, scoring two goals.
“I’d be going to try and make like a mad couple of signings, like huge, that I think would be gettable,” Ferdinand told his YouTube show Vibe with Five.
“I’d be looking at people like Raheem Sterling. Raheem Sterling’s not playing regularly, I’d go ask him the question. I’d go and ask Declan Rice, ‘What’s going on?’
“Them two would be the first two on my list, and I’d go all out to go and get them. And then I’d be trying to get people like Jesse Lingard, who’s in and around the Man United squad.
“It’s unrealistic until you ask the question. I’d be going out there to get answers from these types of players and then you work your way down your list.”
