Newcastle United fans believe they know who the club's first signing will be under the new owners.

An official takeover of the club was announced on Thursday night by the Saudi Investment Group and fans are also speculating who the club will target first.

According to multiple Toon fans, Aaron Ramsey might be the man who fits the bill. The former Arsenal man has struggled with injuries during his time with Juventus, and after an underwhelming two years, he could be on his way out of the club in the upcoming transfer window.

The Daily Mail have claimed that Ramsey has been surplus to requirements at Juve, having just started 25 games in total, and fans were quick to link Newcastle with Ramsey.

It was reported earlier that Juventus could let Aaron Ramsey leave for free in the January transfer window.

Ramsey is currently struggling for any playing time in Turin at the moment and Newcastle along with some other clubs are keen on bringing him back to the Premier League.

The other clubs reportedly include Everton and West Ham United.

The major issue with doing a deal for Ramsey is that the Welshman should be ready to take a major pay-cut if he wants to return back to England.

Ramsey is currently on currently on £400,000-a-week (BBC Sport), which puts the breaks on any kind of move to the mid-table Premier League clubs.
