Newcastle United are trying to sign a striker on loan.
Il Roma, an Italian paper, suggests that Rafa Benitez wants to sign Simone Verdi on loan for the rest of the season.
It is well known that Newcastle have a shortage of transfer funds available.
Loan deals are their best option to improve the team.
And they are unable to get enough funds to sign Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United in MLS.
Verdi, the 26 year old striker, has only five Serie A appearances this season. He has scored one goal and provided one assist in those games.
