A lot of Newcastle United have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts at the latest transfer claim to emerge regarding the Tyneside club. 

According to L’Equipe (via David Crossan), Newcastle have had a €14m (£11.8m) bid rejected from Olympique Marseille for their midfielder, Boubacar Kamara.

Could NUFC sign both Willock & Kamara this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 21-year-old midfielder is only under contract with the Ligue 1 side until the end of this season but it is thought that Marseille’s president would prefer to sell him to Sevilla.

Kamara played a prominent role in Marseille’s domestic campaign last season, which saw the Frenchman feature 35 times in Ligue 1 he grabbed two assists (via Transfermarkt). 

Newcastle flooded to the tweet from Crossan to share their delight at being linked with the midfielder, who they hope to see their club make an improved bid for.

What exactly did these Newcastle have to say?

“I’m on my knees begging for this signing”

“Would love this to happen the lad has so much ability, but can’t see us going beyond that figure. Also not sure if he’d want to come, but it would be a signing.”
“Dream signing but doubt they would go back in with another bid”
“Rather sell to Sevilla? He didn’t like us giving them money for free for Thauvin?”
“Surely he doesn’t care where the player goes long as he gets the money? If we come back in with a higher bid they’ll accept it.”
“Sounds like we aren’t looking to pay transfer fees upfront – minimise outlay for this financial year which aligns with the club’s “spend what you need, not what you want” mantra. Does mean we will be leaving deals to the last minute with a good chance of missing out. “

The news comes the Magpies have reportedly agreed on a fee with Arsenal for their former loanee, Joe Willock, who is understood to be valued in excess of £20m.

Although it is believed the Toon are closing in on the potential signing of Willock, it seems these would also like to see Kamara arrive on Tyneside this summer, too.
