A lot of fans have flocked to a post from NUFC Gallowgate, which has relayed news from The Athletic regarding Ross Barkley.

Newcastle's all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Alan Shearer but how many goals did he score for the club?

It claims that the Toon would like to sign the former Everton man from Chelsea on this summer.

However, these Newcastle fans are not keen on the idea and do not want to see Barkley at . James’ Park.

Awful idea”

@Seniore13Gaming

Not a chance! He’s not the player he used to be and even then he wasn’t that good. This is plan B in case we don’t get Willock back in.”

@ToonBarmy59

Barkley lost his way after leaving Everton. He’s a shadow of what he was. Wouldn’t touch him.”

@psad2

“No thanks he’s got attitude problems don’t need that at all.”

@Jack_Rogers97

Do you want to sign Barkley?

No, he is past his best

Yes, he could be amazing

Barkley spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Aston Villa and started the season brilliantly as he scored two goals and provided one assist in his first five league games for Villa.

However, he then suffered an injury, and after he returned, he only made one further direct contribution in the league.

This post continued to draw in many Toon fans who had their say.

Destined for unfulfilled potential – give him a wide berth. Typical Brucie signing. “…tried and tested…” Would show a criminal lack of proper scouting and due diligence”

More confirmation we won’t be getting Willock next season”

@toonlad9

Nope. Villa sent him back due to discipline issues. There is better out there”

Barkley has plenty of experience at international level and also in the Premier League, so while these Newcastle fans don’t think he would be a good signing, we believe he could add something different to the Toon’s squad.
