Starting with an easy one, how much did Joelinton cost Newcastle when he swapped Hoffenheim for Tyneside?

The 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.

Stokes also states that Achraf Lazaar has asked to leave the club and that are interested.

This news has baffled these Toon fans who cannot believe that Milan would be interested in signing a player who has made just ten appearances for Newcastle since he signed for them in 2016.

&8220;Milan are interested in lazaar Surely not”

@AlanWhalen5

Other Toon fans are annoyed that they are competing with Brentford for Lerager’s signature.

@Tonysop13463030

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.
