A whole host of fans have flocked to Twitter to show their excitement over reported interest in Mario Lemina.

It has been reported by the Daily Mail that the Magpies are looking to strike a deal for the midfielder that would cost the club £4 million.

Should Newcastle move for Lemina?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Lemina spent last season out on loan with Fulham, but he could not help them avoid relegation straight back into the Championship.

A lot of Newcastle fans appear to be delighted on Twitter with the Lemina links.

What have these Newcastle fans had to say?

“Walks in our side, literally be the 1st midfielder on the teamsheet ha”

@DayleBarron

“Certainly worth the risk at that price. His ability is unquestionable. It’s just his attitude but sometimes that kind of player does well at Newcastle”

@mickycantwell

“Our Midfield is hardly powerful and World Class. Beggars can’t be choosers…”

@FreckerP

“Better option than Shelvey, Hendrick and . Get it done”

@_lewisnufc_

“If this means Jeff Hendrick never gets a game for us again I’m all for it”

@cjhhhh21

“Looked class for Fulham last season. 4mil is a good deal”

@James_Holstead

After making 30 appearances for Fulham last season, Lemina managed to rack up a 6.6/10 WhoScored rating, which is better than Toon midfielders Sean and Matty Longstaff, as well as Jeff Hendrick.

Should Newcastle move for Lemina?

Yes

No

The midfielder’s contract is set to expire next summer, which is potentially the reason Steve Bruce may be able to bring in a Premier League-proven midfielder while working within his £10 million budget.
