of Newcastle United have been reacting on Twitter after a report revealed a bid is being prepared for Kristoffer Ajer ahead of the summer transfer window. 

The Magpies have struggled at the back this season, conceding 54 goals in their 33 Premier League games to date, and it appears Steve Bruce is already lining up some targets in order to improve on that tally next term.

centre-back Ajer is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract with the Glasgow giants over the coming months and has been linked with a move away from the former Scottish champions as a result.

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle are stepping up their efforts to sign the Norway international amid interest from AC and Norwich City, with an £8m offer set to be tabled shortly, and it seems as though the North East outfit’s supporters are excited by the news.

“Would love this! But seriously doubt it. He’s good enough to play much higher than where we currently are”

“Take him any day of the week. Young, tall, good ball distribution and could see him working well in a back 3.”

@Twitch_EmCee

“Decent at that price to be fair.”

@ClintThirtle

“Rate him, 8m would be a good deal imo”

@inb4ww3

“Good probably never getting accepted tho”

@JSpence24

“Would love to see him in a back 3 with Schar and Lascelles but he’d most likely be Schar’s replacement”

Ajer has won eight major trophies throughout his time at Celtic, and the 23-year-old appears to be keen to take the next step in his career over the summer.
