This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest update:
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this latest transfer news?
“Literally no better than Atsu”
“30 in June. Next.”
“He’s about 30 years old and doesn’t fit the narrative of Premier league experience with Bruce or a sell on fee with Ashley so you can write this deal off for #NUFC straight away”
“Isn’t he like a million years old? Seems like he has been around for so long”
The 29-year-old, who is currently valued at £7.2 million, has made a total of 292 appearances throughout his career across a range of different clubs in which he has managed to score 47 goals and provide 36 assists in the process (per Transfermarkt).
Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Newcastle fans are not too interested in seeing their club potentially make a move to sign Kakuta in the summer.
Would you like to see Newcastle sign Kakuta this summer?
Given how Newcastle have managed to concede 58 goals in the Premier League so far this season with only Southampton, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United conceding more, it would make sense, in our view, for the Magpies to focus more on signing some defensive players before looking at any attackers or midfielders.
