Would Calhanoglu be a good signing for Newcastle?
Yes, he would be a good addition to the squad
No, Newcastle need to strengthen other positions
However, the fact the Toon are only just scouting him has annoyed many Newcastle fans.
#NUFC sent an official to Italy to watch Hakan Çalhano?lu play for Milan. United are looking to finalise their targets for January, & are looking at options for the summer market too.

It always makes me curious that we have sent scouts in Jan to watch a player….what have they been doing between Sept 1st and Dec 31st. A well organised club would surely have scouting done and discussions held ready for 1st Jan

We are the only club that hasn’t finalised their targets. Why? Because we don’t and won’t sign anyone other than some cheap deal thrown our way towards the end and they’ll say we tried. Relegation battle here we come

We are looking at players now. Clubs are signing players they’ve looked at for the last 3 months. Its amateur hour agsin

Finalise their targets. It’s the 6th.

Other Newcastle fans, though, do not want Calhanoglu.

What do we think?
Calhanoglu, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, has struggled since he moved to Italy.
Newcastle are in the market for attacking additions, but Calhanoglu is not what they need at the moment.
