It is pretty evident what Newcastle United need.

The Magpies have scored 36 goals in all competitions this season and 61% of those goals have been scored by defenders and central midfielders.

Service certainly has been an issue - hence why Steve Bruce decided to switch to a 4-2-3-1 and sign Nabil Bentaleb and Valentino Lazaro on loan - but the black-and-whites will surely revisit the situation up front whenever the transfer window reopens later this year.

Bruce recognised his side's Achilles' heel, himself, in January and Newcastle did look into signing Olivier Giroud on loan but the veteran striker was ultimately not convinced.

It may sound strange to be saying this about a Newcastle No.9, but will that ultimately prove to be his role going forward?

As the days ticked by in the mid-season window, Bruce felt there was no one else out there who would instantly improve the forwards at his disposal.

There is sure to be movement in the forward department this summer - can Newcastle guarantee Dwight Gayle the games he needs at this stage of his career?
