Benitez admits he is 'not happy' with Newcastle's transfer business so far

Jacob Murphy of Newcastle United celebrates after scoring the second goal during a pre-season friendly match between Bradford City and Newcastle United at Northern Commercials Stadium

Combined with the Spanish manager making it clear he's been frustrated by the summer transfer window, and Newcastle's activity in it so far, Benitez speaking about Perez was always going to get attention, and that's nearly certainly why he did it. "Now I will try to do my best to be sure that the team we have will be good enough to compete and stay as high as we can in the Premier League".

An experienced Premier League coach his next match - at home to Tottenham Hotspur - will be his 265th with his best finish being when he guided Liverpool to a runners-up spot in 2009. "We must have a game plan and try and stick to it". We missed some targets at the beginning and we're paying for that.

"It is hard for teams who don't have as much money as the big teams".

"If we are still in the race it's because we believe there's a possibility and we will continue to fight because the truth is the player is looking forward to joining us".

After an interesting press conference after Newcastle beat Hellas Verona 2-0 on Sunday afternoon, Benitez is clearly becoming more and more open with the media when it comes to his feelings about this summer.

Lucas Perez's agent has reiterated his client's desire to leave Arsenal and says the club are pricing the Spaniard out of move to former side Deportivo. "At the end of last season, Mike Ashley said he would give every penny he had to Rafa".

The 21-year-old arrived at Chelsea from Brazilian club Fluminense in summer 2015 and instead of becoming another member of the loan brigade from the get-go, he was integrated into the first-team instead.

"I know that he did really well".
