Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori are examples of how Newcastle could line up under Frank Lampard ahead of Steve Bruce’s departure.
Following their £300 million takeover, NEWCASTLE might turn to Frank Lampard to lead them into a new era.
Following conversations with part-owner Amanda Staveley, Steve Bruce is due to be fired in the next days and is hanging to his job.
Former Chelsea and Derby County manager Lampard is a strong contender for the post, according to SunSport.
And if the Stamford Bridge legend takes over, he may be accompanied by a few familiar faces.
According to estimates, Newcastle will be able to spend up to £200 million in January without breaking the FFP restrictions.
While Newcastle are expected to spend significantly less – about £30 million – if the appropriate targets become available and the club falls deeper into a relegation struggle, that figure might rise if the right targets become available and if Newcastle fall deeper into a relegation battle.
Newcastle has been connected with a slew of huge names, including FIVE Serie A stars and four Manchester United rejects.
Lampard, on the other hand, might start with two former Chelsea players, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori.

In a scintillating wing duet under Lampard, the USA star could line up on the right side with fan favorite Allan Saint-Maximin on the other.
Meanwhile, after leaving Chelsea and joining AC Milan, Tomori has found his best form.
The 23-year-old centre-back has even made his way back into the England squad, coming off the bench in last week’s 5-0 thrashing of Andorra.
Newcastle might have a solid centre-back duo come January, with Burnley’s James Tarkowski linked with a transfer to the North East.
Lampard, on the other hand, may find it difficult to sign Tomori, with the defender only joining Milan permanently in the summer and a slew of European giants vying for his signature amid his hot form.
The Toon have also been connected with Matthijs de Ligt of Juventus, which is perhaps a bit of a stretch.
In 2022, Eric Bailly and Stefan de Vrij have been suggested as possible transfer targets.
Aaron Ramsey, Franck Kessie, Marcelo Brozovic, and Federico Chiesa are among the Serie A stars rumored to be on the Magpies’ radar.
In attack, Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette, as well as Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, are intriguing options.
