The Daily Star reporter claims that Newcastle are one of the clubs chasing Genoa’s Lukas Lerager and that they are competing with Brentford for his signature.
However, he claims that a deal for Hamza Choudhury is more likely.
“Milan are interested in lazaar Surely not”
“Achraf Lazaar has played 25 games of football in 4.5 years.”
“As in Ac Milan?”
Do you believe any of this?
No, none of these things will happen
Yes, they could do
Other Toon fans are annoyed that they are competing with Brentford for Lerager’s signature.
“Competing with Brentford for a player. Our level”
“Competing with Brentford, we got beat the last time. Same again I think.”
“PL club competing with a championship club over a signing . That sums up Ashleys era in a oner !”
So, it looks like moves both in and out are happening at Newcastle and we will be watching on with interest to see what happens on Tyneside as the deadline approaches.
It is clear from these reactions though that many Toon fans are baffled about the Lazaar news and annoyed that they are trying to compete with Brentford for another player.
