Newcastle United have signed Joselu for £5m from Stoke City.
Joselu becomes Newcastle’s sixth capture since the end of last season after passing a medical and agreeing terms on a £50,000-a-week move to the North-East.
But Benitez wants to take his number of new recruits into double figures before the transfer deadline later this month.
Former Spain Under-21 international is keen to kickstart his Premier League career after being farmed out on loan last season to Deportivo La Coruna.
That came after a disappointing first season in the Potteries when he scored four goals in 22 league appearances following a £5.75m move from Hannover in 2015.
