A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a tweet from Keith Downie in which he claims that the Magpies are looking to bring Ademola Lookman in on a loan deal with an option to buy.
And, Downie has since updated fans on the current transfer situation.
Would Lookman be a good signing for Newcastle?
Yes, he is exactly what they need
No, just another poor winger
This has pleased many Toon fans who see Lookman as a player worth having.
Newcastle are set to make a loan offer (with potential option to buy) for Ademola Lookman. The RB Leipzig winger moved to Germany in a £22m deal in the summer. Via my colleague @skysports_sheth & Sky Germany #NUFC

This would be unreal if we get it done #nufc

Good player. Good signing. Hopefully it gets done.

Great potential if we get him.

What do we think?
If the Toon do get Lookman, then he could be a good addition, but they would still also need to sign a striker.
