Newcastle poised to sign Kenedy on loan from Chelsea

Benitez has had disagreements about transfers at pretty much every club he's spent serious time at, so it's only natural for that to continue at Newcastle. "The most-important thing is that the team won and I'm also happy that I scored". We missed some targets at the beginning and we're paying for that.

"I can read our fans saying "listen, now will sign a £25million striker".

"Sometimes they are unavailable, and if they are available, sometimes the wages are not the same, the commission is not the same and the wages are huge".

It may be a little late to be tinkering with formations, given the new Premier League season starts this weekend, but a number of teams changed systems with the previous campaign well under way.

"This is a very hard negotiation but if I didn't think there was a chance I would say so".

"I am not happy but at the same time for me it's a challenge".

Magpies boss Rafael Benitez has confirmed he has held talks with Arsene Wenger regarding the services of the 28-year-old forward, though the Gunners are standing firm on their demands of £13.8m.

"It's very hard for me because my Chinese is not good enough", he said, referencing links with the Chinese Super League.

"I try to do my best now". "I never mention figures but we have done all that Deportivo can, even making a big effort because of the importance that I believe Lucas can have in this team next season. It is something you cannot control but at the moment I am fully committed to do the best that I can".

And Benitez, who has injury concerns over striker Dwight Gayle ahead of Newcastle's first league match at home to Tottenham on Sunday, has targeted former Deportivo La Coruna attacker Perez as a potential addition to his forward options.
