Benitez is keen to see more new arrivals, though he and managing director Lee Charnley are under pressure to move on a number of players.

"I can read our fans saying "we will sign a £25m striker".

Newcastle United and Rafa Benitez want to be able to compete in the Premier League and ensure their place in the division. "The teams at the top have put prices so high that ... for average players they ask for big money, big commission, big wages. We must have a game plan and try and stick to it".

Benitez, however, reiterated his commitment to the club and said he was focussed on helping the team avoid immediate relegation back to the Championship.

"I am not happy but at the same time for me it's a challenge", Benitez said on Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old, a fine athlete with experience of playing a left-sided wing-back, would work well on the left of a four or five-man midfield, with DeAndre Yedlin on the other side.

"I just wish I can have a good season, help the team as much as I can and that the team can do well - that's the most-important thing".

Asked about walking away, Benitez added: "No, I made a decision to stay".

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

"For me, I'm not totally happy with what we did, but I will try to do my best, working very hard with people at the club to try and improve what we have at the moment". It has to be something you can not control.

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.
