Newcastle United have always loved a maverick.

The Magpies are a special club and over the years they’ve had a number of special players who don’t do things by the book.

From Paul Gascoigne and Faustino Asprilla all the way to Hatem Ben Arfa and Allan Saint-Maximin, the Tyneside club and their fanbase absolutely adore an unorthodox player.

United are in the market for a new attacker this summer, and if one rumour is to be believed, they could soon have one of the most unorthodox trios in football.

Indeed, Eddie Howe’s side are apparently keen on Gianluca Scamacca, and adding him to a frontline that will also include Ryan Fraser and Saint-Maximin could be very interesting indeed.

If you’ve never seen Scamacca play before, you’re in for a treat if he arrives at St James’ Park.

A 6ft5 striker, Scamacca has a rocket of a shot on him, incredible feet and a tendency to pull off the spectacular.

When you watch Scamacca it’s tough not to be reminded of a young Zlatan Ibrahimovic, simply put, he’s one of the most unique young strikers on the planet.

Now, imagine a player like that alongside Saint-Maximin and Fraser – two more of the most unique footballers in Europe.

We all know what makes Saint-Maximin a one-of-a-kind player. His directness, his pace and his skill make him an almost unsolvable puzzle for any defender, and while his end product can lack, it’s fair to say that he’s one of the most difficult players to prepare to face in world football.

Meanwhile, as the smallest player in the Premier League, Ryan Fraser’s incredible mix of speed, balance and delivery make him unique in his own way. His centre of gravity is so low that it’s almost bizarre and, once again, he’s very difficult for any defender to prepare for.

Picture Scamacca, Saint-Maximin and Fraser playing together. This trio have a blend of distinct and unique styles that may not blend, but on their days, they can be absolutely unplayable in their own rights.

How Eddie Howe would make these three work within the same team is a puzzle in itself, but if he can figure it out, it will be almost impossible for any defence to prepare to face these three.
