Newcastle United are hoping to add to their squad before Thursday's transfer deadline and have identified SL Benfica's Andreas Samaris and AS Monaco's Antonio Barreca as last-minute targets. The Daily Mail also report that Monaco left-back Antonio Barreca is a Newcastle target after a loan move for SS Lazio's Jordan Lukaku fell through last week. The brother of Romelu Lukaku reportedly failed his medical at St. James' Park and Benitez has revived interest in Barreca, who only joined Monaco this season but has made just nine appearances. The Magpies sit in 17th place and February is set to be a crucial month in their fight for survival, as they prepare for two home games against relegation rivals Huddersfield and Burnley.
