Lots of Newcastle United fans have been blown away by a fresh transfer claim to emerge on Twitter linking them with the Benfica forward Darwin Nunez.  

According to journalist Mark Douglas, the Magpies have been ‘quoted in excess of £50m’ if they wish to further their interest in the Uruguayan.

Would Nunez save NUFC from relegation?





The report claims the 22-year-old has also attracted the interest of Atletico Madrid and Manchester City despite the £100m release clause in his contract.

And as the Toon reportedly have their sights on bolstering their options in attack next month, these fans flocked to Twitter to share their excitement over the links to the Benfica ace.

What did these Newcastle fans have to say?

“Darwin Nunez is a beast. Been watching a lot of Primera Liga and every time I see him play, he reminds of a Forlan/Drogba type, skill and can finish from anywhere”

“Great player. Would be an amazing signing!”
“Throw the kitchen sink at them, give them what they want”
“oh my stars get it done we’re winning the lot”
“Pay it. Pay anything they want, just make it happen. The guy is an absolute superstar in the making.”
“He’s the next suarez”

Callum Wilson’s latest injury setback will have been the last thing Eddie Howe would have hoped for going into the second half of the season given he leads the way as their top scorer with six goals.

However, it seems these fans feel the impressive form Nunez has shown this season with 13 goals in as many league games could make the 22-year-old the forward they need to save them from falling into the Championship.
