Newcastle: Fans react to Giroud links


A lot of Newcastle United fans are excited about the possibility of Olivier Giroud arriving from Chelsea before the close of the transfer window.

Newcastle have already brought in Nabil Bentaleb, Valentino Lazaro, and they have also agreed a for Danny Rose to join the club.

However, their attention has now turned to bringing in a striker to support Joelinton.

According to Lee Ryder of the Evening Chronicle, the Toon want to bring Giroud to Tyneside, and this has excited many Newcastle fans.

Other Toon supporters, though, doubt that the 33-year-old would want to move to Newcastle.

What do we think?

Giroud, who is a World Cup winner with France, was linked with a move to the Toon earlier in the window, but then it looked like he was going to move to Inter Milan only to see that fall-through.

Tottenham Hotspur were also linked with a move for the former Arsenal striker, but it is unclear if the Blues would let him join a rival.

Another club to show interest in Giroud are Lazio; however, if was offered guaranteed game time at Newcastle, then why couldn’t they sign him?

He needs to be playing regular football if he has any chance of making the French squad for 2020, and a move to Tyneside could give him that opportunity.
