Newcastle United are set to bolster their squad in the winter transfer window. The British club still do not know who will be their first signing in the new phase they have opened after the purchase of the club.
That could be Axel Witsel. The 'Daily Mail' indicated that they are already preparing a bid for the Borussia Dortmund player to get his services and thus deprive other interested parties such as Juventus.
Witsel's contract with Borussia Dortmund expires at the end of the current season so, as he has not reached a renewal agreement with the German club, his departure is feasible in January.
Furthermore, according to the source, Newcastle are willing to improve Witsel's wages at the German club, which would mean an increase in his emoluments.
