Newcastle should ramp up interest in Leeds striker Kemar Roofe in the summer

Newcastle United’s clear weakness is in the front end of the pitch and they need to strengthen in the summer transfer window.

The Magpies are fighting against relegation this season and providing they stay in the top flight they need to invest in some forwards.

According to the Chronicle, Newcastle are continuing to monitor centre-forward Kemar Roofe from Championship club Leeds United.

Manager Rafael Benitez should draw up a summer plan to move for the 26-year-old, as he could be a great addition at St James’ Park.

Roofe has just been hit by a knee ligament injury, but he’s shown enough in the season so far to suggest he deserves a chance in the Premier League.

The English striker has scored 14 Championship goals this campaign and is on an incredible rise from the lower leagues.

He’s a speed machine that can hurt defenders running in behind and his superb work-rate is another big feature of his game.

Newcastle fans could find their next hero in the goalscorer and he deserves his opportunity in the top flight, while there is definitely room open in Benitez’s squad for him.
