A no-brainer: This Swedish international would be the perfect replacement for Rondon at Newcastle and Rafa must get him

Newcastle United opinions: Benitez must sign Mainz’s Robin Quaison

Robin Quaison is a Swedish international centre-forward who currently plies his trade in the Bundesliga for mid-table club FSV Mainz. He is 25 years old and can be a very dangerous player as he does add a wide array of attributes to his team’s attack.

He is capable of being deployed as a central striker or can also play in the attacking midfield role because of his well-rounded skill-set. He’s an excellent attacking threat and he has been one of Mainz’s best players this season.

Newcastle United should look to bring the talented Swede to England as he has all the right ingredients to be a massive hit in the Premier League given his style of play and experience.

Their season hasn’t been overly inspiring but over the course of the campaign, they have produced some really impressive results with the memorable win against league leaders Manchester City at St.James’ Park topping that list.

They have really struggled to find the goals from up front this season though as until about last month, their strikers, including Salomon Rondon, weren’t performing at the highest level and this put Rafa Benitez’s squad under a lot of pressure.

But recently, since the acquisition of Paraguayan forward Miguel Almiron, things have looked better and Rondon seems to have found his feet too but the harsh reality of Rondon’s loan deal will see him make the switch back to the Hawthorns to join up with his parent club, West Brom.

Although they have the services of Joselu and Yoshinori Muto available, neither has stepped up to the plate this season and Rafa’s faith in them is probably not very high at this point.

While Dwight Gayle is expected to return from his loan spell, he has never really been able to shine in the Premie League.

With the ambition of challenging for a top-half finish next season very much alive, they must look to bring in a striker who can ably replace Rondon and that man must be Mainz forward Robin Quaison.

The Swedish international has already notched up 6 caps for his country and even has two goals to his name while his numbers for Mainz this season are even better. From his 22 Bundesliga appearances, he has scored five and setup a further three.

His movement and sharpness in front of goal make him an excellent prospect for the Premier League, while his ability to time his runs in behind the defenders will suit Newcastle’s style of play. This is why this move is a no-brainer and Rafa must get it done at the earliest.
