Newcastle should rival Hull for Watford’s Success

Rafa Benitez desperately needs to add creativity to his lacklustre Newcastle attack and Watford’s Isaac Success could prove to be a great addition at St. James’ Park.

HITC Sport claim the 21-year-old is interesting Championship side Hull City, after falling down the pecking order at Watford just one season after joining the club for £13.75million from Granada.

New signings Richarlison and Andre Gray joined the likes of Nordin Amrabat and Mauro Zarate in looking to slot into Marco Silva’s first team in attack during the 2017-18 season.

It has seen Success plummet down the pecking order despite his expensive price tag and due to his tender age, he could be allowed to leave the club on loan this summer.

Newcastle have lost their first two Premier League matches of the season against Tottenham and Huddersfield this season, offering next to nothing in attack as they remain in search of their first league goal.

Dwight Gayle has been given little ammunition by attacking midfielders Christian Atsu, Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie and adding to those options will give Newcastle fresh hope.

Step forward Success, who is known for both his pace and power as well as his versatility that allows him to play anywhere in attacking midfield.

Making 19 Premier League appearances last season, Success showed in glimpses what he is capable of by scoring against Bournemouth and creating a Stefano Okaka goal during a 4-3 loss to Southampton.

Owner Mike Ashley has been very tight when it comes to opening the Newcastle cheque book this summer, with Benitez reportedly linked with a whole host of talent but only managing to spend £35million on six new players.

With Hull eyeing one-time Nigeria international Success on loan, the Toon could look to lure Watford’s number 10 to St. James’ Park without having to spend a penny, which would come as a huge positive to Benitez.
